Don't we sweep before mopping?

Why the fuck do people clean in spring?

Shouldn't they be cleaning all year round? God, culture is so dirty.

From the people with apparently a whole lot of free time on their hands:

I had assumed her floor was carpet... Which is suited neither for sweeping nor mopping. But now, I guess, her floor is linoleum. I don't think you can (or rather should) mop a hardwood floor. Or maybe she has a swank marble floor. Do you mop marble floors? Hmm.

Oh well. Cleaning is good for your souls, you know those jars need dusting sometimes.

I think that if you own a marble floor, you aren't going to be the one having to decide the appropriate method of cleaning it.

So why worry?

my god I love Nique even more now... she cleans very well!


Anyway, my idea of spring cleaning was to get rid of any junk you had collected over the year and no longer need.

I would guess that there is more than one room in her house. She could have swept the floor of one room and then mop it, and then go to another room. That could explain why she mops first and then sweeps.

I used to live in a pretty big house and I had to clean the whole place on more than one occasion. That is how I used to do it, which is probably why it didnít seem strange to me to see her moping and then sweeping.

I liked *splorsh*

Also, spring cleaning is also for things like cleaning out the garage, which you don't really want to spend time doing in the winter. So, the grunge builds up from around the first frost until it's really nice outside. Also, I find it's usually the first time in months I wash my car and vacuum it out.

That's not a bad arguement.

She didn't before...

New and improved Nique, in more ways than one.

Technically:

Whence <> Where

"From whence" is gramatically incorrect, since whence includes the idea of from.

Go back whence you came would be correct.

I'm not saying you're wrong, but just to nitpick:
a usage note from Dictionary.com wrote:
Although sometimes criticized as redundant on the grounds that from is implied by the word whence, the idiom from whence is old in the language, well established, and standard. Among its users are the King James Bible, Shakespeare, Dryden, and Dickens... Such a respectable precedent makes it difficult to label the construction as incorrect.
