NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Decluttering the kitchen, scrubbing the bathroom and putting away winter clothes isn't spring cleaning; it's a good laugh for folks who spend this season handling excrement and carting off corpses.The folks at the American Cleaning Institute say 66% of Americans will do some form of spring cleaning this year, including 82% of those ages 18-29. Of that younger neat-freak set, 96% says having a clean home is very important to them, 26% say spring is when they clean their home most thoroughly and 23% say if it wasn't for spring cleaning they'd never clean. Still, the toughest tasks most spring cleaners face this year are wiping down the counters (91%), mopping floors and vacuuming rugs (92%) and reorganizing the closets (88%).
