Why I'm Spring Cleaning in November

Why I'm Spring Cleaning in November

Mattresses being heaved off to the roof to get their spot under the early winter sun… one of my more visceral memories of late October in Northern India. Not just any day in October, but about two weeks before the festival of Diwali. Because what is ostensibly the festival of lights—not to mention an occasion to devour all the snacks and desserts—is also prime time for most Indian households to play an extended game of “spring” cleaning.

The mattress sunning was often just the start of it at my own home, to be followed by a Byzantine checklist of cleaning tasks: washing foot mats and rugs, wiping curtain rods and windows clean, disinfecting knobs, emptying out and rebuilding the insides of (perfectly neat) closets, and dusting fans. It was a purge-and-reorganize marathon that got much of the household involved, usually starting at the two-to-three-week mark to the festival.
