The phrase “spring cleaning” itself has been trending the last few weeks. It normally starts around February 1st, and interest peaks around the end of March.
Here are a few stats from Google Trends.

2. The top “how to clean” searches right now are: “How to clean Airpods”, “How to clean a cast-iron skillet”, “How to clean white shoes”, “How to clean suede shoes”, and “How to clean a dishwasher.”
3. “Where to donate?” The top search like that right now is “where to donate clothing.” So a lot of us are cleaning out our closets.
4. The top-trending cleaning product is an all-purpose cleaner called The Pink Stuff. TikTok claims it’s amazing. “The New York Times” gave it mixed reviews last year though. They said it’s good for keeping things clean, but not the best deep-cleaner.
