Here are some tips to prepare for a cleaner winter:
1) Make sure you have mats, inside and out by each outside door. Also a good idea to use slippers. Have extra pairs for guests.
2) Wash your windows. Use newspaper and a glass cleaner. This will cheer things up for the dark days ahead.
3) Change your filters (vents, furnace, stove fan). This will help keep the air in your home cleaner.
