14 Spring Cleaning Quotes That Say What We're All Thinking

With the warm weather quickly making itself known and the leafless trees finally finding their bloom again, it's time to start your spring cleaning. Since it is such a dreaded task for most (I said most), I've collected a slew of spring cleaning quotes that capture exactly how a majority of the American population feels about housekeeping. (If you are one of the rare few who actually enjoys the scrubbing and the organizing, well, bless you.)

Let's face the facts: spring cleaning is a chore. You don't get paid for it, and it usually takes up hours of your weekend (especially if you're being thorough), but the payoff? Oh, the payoff! Is there anything better than a clean home? Is there anything better than sliding under clean sheets? Is there anything better than a color-coded bookshelf? I think not.

Spring cleaning is such a love/hate activity, and while most of the quotes here come from the haters, I know that you can still love your clean home while appreciating the endless humor below.
