Could your home pass the white glove test?

Why does spring get all the credit for being the season to deep clean? I don't know about you, but after a busy summer spent outdoors, my home is ready for a good scrubbing to prep for the cool seasons ahead. With autumn officially starting next Thursday, we're using this entire week to share our top cleaning tips, recipes, hacks and more. We're even confessing the songs we listen to when scrubbing toilets. It's getting real, y'all.

Before we get into that, though, let's get to know each other a little bit ... with a quiz. Or, more like a confessional. I'll share my results, too.

QUIZ: How Clean Is Your House?

So, how did you fare? I'll be honest: I'm an "Extreme Cleaner," and I don't have to retake the quiz — this is 100 percent who I am. I clean up as I cook/bake, and I (not-so-secretly) love to do laundry. For me, cleaning alleviates stress and has become a form of mindfulness meditation. It may sound silly, but it totally works for me. A form of stress relief that's also productive? Win-win!
