“Clean up” the “Cleanup” on Aisle 4!


With the end of the holiday season comes the need to put one’s house literally back in order. Remove the ornaments, throw away the tree, take down the lights, vacuum the pine needles, compose the thank-you notes, pay the higher power bills, etc.

In short, it’s time for the post-holiday cleaning. It’s also time to be reminded of which word or words to use.

Clean up is the verb. Cleanup is the noun. No hyphen needed.

Only 90 days or so until “Spring Cleaning.”

Until next time! Use the right words!
