Window cleaning in Maryland.

With spring just around the corner, we're kicking winter to the curb, dusting off the cobwebs and cleaning up.

From a beach-front ban on cigarettes, to the custodians who spruce up our public schools. We'll hear about ongoing efforts to clean up toxic waste in Northwest D.C., and what Metro's new board of directors is doing to clean up the transit agency's act, so to speak. Plus, a kind of cleaning up that could very well make you a whole lot of money.
