Cleanliness is next to Profitability
  In many homes, the refrigerator is covered with schoolwork, pictures, and a schedule of social obligations. Unfortunately, when an important phone call comes in and a message dutifully is taken and posted on the refrigerator, it is unlikely to be noticed amidst the clutter. The inability to tell normal (schoolwork and schedules) from abnormal (urgent message) at a glance can cause an unfortunate delay in responding to the message.
The same “clutter” found on a home’s refrigerator mirrors the same breakdown of communication many businesses suffer due to disorganization. Maintaining an organized and clean work environment can provide a strong foundation for quality, communication, and effective management for any business.
As you begin to create a culture of organization and cleanliness at your company, the well-established “5S” process can be quite useful. It is called 5S because of the 5 words that begin with S:
Sort Shines Sustain
Set in Order Standardize    
Sort - (A) Get rid of unneeded things, and (B) move what is not needed now so it is out of the way, yet reasonably accessible when you do need it.
Set in Order - A place for everything and everything in its place. Figure out the best place to keep each item. A good labelling system can significantly reduce time wasted looking for things and make it easier for anyone to return items correctly. You may be comforted when surrounded by piles, but the time of others is wasted as they must find and interrupt you each time they need something.
Shine - Clean and inspect. Cleanliness enhances customer confidence and makes it easier for employees to take pride in their work. A schedule that explains the who, what, when and how of cleaning may seem like overkill, but in fact is quite helpful.
Standardize - A standard method for the first three S’s and prevention of the need for the first three. How? I’ve seen a high volume kitchen cabinet manufacturing operation that is practically sawdust free because they were committed to eliminating the dust and dirt. One print shop changed the handling of advance runs (put away, get out), reducing workload by 20%. Quick oil change shops conveniently hang the filler hose from the ceiling so the worker can reach up to grab it; when finished, he simply lets go and it automatically goes back in place. Prevent the need to sort, to set in order, or to shine by thinking differently about what you do.
Sustain - Make it a part of the ingrained culture. It means neat, clean, and organized is part of who we are, and how we behave. Set the expectation, support the behaviour, and put in place simple systems so that everyone can tell normal from abnormal at a glance.

The outsides of a bone are hard but is light and soft inside. They are just about 75% water.
Babies are born with pink lungs but they darken in colour as we breathe in polluted air.
The right lung is bigger than the left lung! The left lung is smaller so as to adjust the heart in it’s place.
The human skeleton keeps changing every 10 years, which means our bodies keep renewing themselves with a new skeleton every 10 years.
