Downloadable Pesach cleaning checklist.

Less than 30 days left to get the house Chametz free.

The Purim hangover has finally passed over and now the count-down to Pesach has begun. Cleaning never ends and it goes beyond the festival but we've got less than 30 days to get the house chametz free.  Here is a list of all the areas, in a typical Israeli household, you could check, clean and scrub. Remember kitchen and dining areas are most important for Pesach but while you are at it, you might want to do a thorough spring clean. You can download the printable version of the checklist that incorporates Pesach and spring cleaning at the bottom of the page.  Pesach cleaning can be backbreaking, so follow Dr. Roy Sery's tips to keep your back healthy and strong.
