After a long winter, spring is finally here. But now that the sun is shining, those dust bunnies, dingy sheets and grubby windows at home look even worse. So grab a rag and broom – this hour, we get expert advice on cleaning house. Marty is joined by guests JOLIE KERR, the author of My Boyfriend Barfed in My Handbag…and Other Things You Can’t Ask Martha, and DEBRA JOHNSON, who directs the training program for Merry Maids.
