When we lived in Monsey, one of my neighbors used to say to me every year, “EK, I love all the cleaning and preparing I do for Pesach; the extra work in order to fulfill these mitzvot brings extra kedushah.”

I must be glowing from all the kedushah I have right now.  Who knew my kitchen was so grungy?  Not to mention what I found in the bottom drawer of EK Son #2’s dresser.  I believe it was once an apple.

Happy cleaning!
