Difficult English Descriptions

Setting: An email conversation among a household of sisters that went something like this...
English Patient Sister B: Let's do a deep clean of the house!  Every book and cranny!
Healthy English Friend: Ha ha!  Yeah, let's clean every book and page in the house!  :)
English Patient Sister E: (replying to Sister B privately, to help her out)  It's every "crack and cranny", I think.

That would be "crack and crevice," which is a similar idiom.
