The spring clean – A rock-solid solution for the children’s wardrobe.

The chill of winter begins to leave the bones.

As the days grow longer and

we wake from winter’s melatonin-induced stupor,

we rediscover the energy to clean.

You’re certainly not alone

in this strange desire to clean your house. 

It’s kind of an unconscious, collective movement.

Spring cleaning is an ancient custom,

taking place each year at that time

when the days begin to lengthen

and we emerge from our cold-weather stupor

ready to freshen up our caves (homes)


Exactly why do we traditionally clean our homes at the beginning of spring?

In many places around the world, it’s about much more

than just getting your actual house clean.

A top-to-bottom, thorough house cleaning

(which, depending on where you live, may not always take place in the spring)

is often a tangible representation

of changes happening within. 


Exactly why do we traditionally clean our homes at the beginning of spring?

Those of us in the Western world

may be surprised to find

that it’s possibly rooted in customs found in the East. 


For many cultures,

the new year and spring coincide.

The reasons behind why we spring clean

are rooted in two competing cultures,

Jewish and Iranian. A third, the Chinese, also have a similar custom.

All of these traditions extend far­ back into the distant past.


Thoroughly cleaning your home

rids it of the bad luck of the past year

and gets it ready to fill with

the good luck sure to follow in the new one. 

During our spring cleaning we will sort kid’s winter clothes away and put the spring wardrobe on the Hookie hangers.


A rock-solid solution for the children’s wardrobe.

Did you know that our Hookie hangers

are made from the currently most environmentally friendly plastic,

that is both biodegradable and recyclable?

And the colours we use are non-toxic and basically edible!

(approved for food production)

So a safe and fun solution for the kids’ room.
