Homeowners are starting to think about spring cleaning rituals. We organize, shuffle, wash, vacuum and even dust in corners that are normally forgotten or overlooked. We conquer our bathrooms, kitchens, dark closets and are brave enough to look under the bed. What about the furniture? More than likely, it hasn’t been cleaned, or cleaned properly, in a long time, if ever. So, it’s time for spring-cleaners to tackle their deep, dark furniture-cleaning fears. With some simple, ongoing TLC, you can extend the life of your furniture and stave off the need to buy new furniture. Just make sure you’re doing it correctly and not making things worse.

When I took office last year, I made three commitments about the city’s budget. I made the commitment to cut wasteful spending and build a smarter government that does more with less. I committed to use our savings and increased revenues from a recovering economy to lower taxes. And I made the commitment not to accelerate any tax cut if the result hurt our public’s safety.

Yet health care costs continue to shoot up relentlessly.
