How about mucking out the artroom? We clean everything really well the day
before exams.Doesn't everybody? We clear out cupboards, wash them and
reorganize. We wipe clay off surfaces several times during the day (you
know how it "reappears). The clean out their storage drawers, scrape off
paint trays, wash and scrub sinks until they gleam. My kids even dust and
wash off the tops of the upper cupboards. We use toothbrushes! Mom used to
say, "Many hands make light work!" I'm not saying we are usually messy, but
I am saying we get the place REALLY clean.

On exam day, we have a non-messy project final.
