The 'Queen of Clean' offers spring cleaning advice


While Lynn Scharenbroich doesn’t refer to herself as the “Queen of Clean,” she certainly could be a contender for the crown.

Scharenbroich, who owns Black Pine Beach Resort with her husband, Bob, knows a thing or two about spring cleaning. Starting in late April, she and her cleaning crew set out to clean each of their cabins from top to bottom so they are ready to rent out for Memorial Day weekend. They try to accomplish all the work within a three-week period.
