Death Cleaning

By Mindah-Lee Kumar

The other day, I decided to take a look at YouTube’s recommended videos for me, and I saw a video on Swedish Death Cleaning. Apparently, in Sweden, they have a cleaning process called “döstädning”, a hybrid of the words ‘death’ and ‘cleaning’. The concept is that we mindfully clear out our possessions before we die, saving our relatives from the difficult chore of sorting through our past belongings.
