Alright – we are in the final stretch of winter. (We promise!) Only 2 more days ’till it is officially spring. To help you get ready for the season, we are sharing our spring 2014 suggestions – drawing inspiration from Women’s History Month, of course!
Those that I live with may say I’m a bit obsessive about cleaning, but I say I’m just methodical. Maybe Susan Hibbard, the woman who invented the feather duster in 1876 was the same way. Interestingly, she almost didn’t receive credit for the feather duster. There was a patent fight between her husband and herself, which she won, opening the doors for future women inventors to apply for patents in their own names. In today’s world, it doesn’t really matter who does the cleaning around the house (or who takes credit for it), it only matters that it gets done so we can all move on with more important business like work, spending time with family and maybe even taking up a hobby.
