After today, I realized there are 22 windows in my house. Why do I know this random fact, you ask? Well, I washed them all! You may think, well, that's not all bad; you got
your Windex out and went to it. The fact is though, I'm not satisfied with Windex. Nope. I needed to get down and dirty so I pulled out the vinegar, ammonia, water, and newspapers (what? oh, you'll find out) to create the perfect window cleaning elixir. It was a lot of hard work, but when your house is bright and smelling fresh, you'll find it was all worth it!
|To begin, get your supplies: ammonia, vinegar, towels, rags, and newspapers.|
|In a gallon sized bucket, add 1/2 cup of vinegar or so. |
|A tablespoon of ammonia|
|Then fill up your bucket with water.|
|Find a dirty window. (Yes, this was dirty, but it's hard to tell in this picture.) And get to work! |
|Step One: Use a wet rag with the vinegar, ammonia and water mixture on it to thoroughly clean the window.|
|Step Two: Wipe the window dry with a towel.|
|Step Three: Wipe the window with dry newspaper. This will prevent that pesky lent from forming on the window. (Isn't that a cool trick?)|
|Finally, put your window back together if need be...|
|Or just imagine you're outside (it feels like it with these spotless windows!)|
And that's it, you're finished. You can cross one thing off the summer to do list. (let me tell you, I love crossing things off the list!) Let the test nesters know what's on your to do list this summer. Do you have projects to do on your home or garden? Maybe you're to do list involves relaxation or reading. We'd love to hear about it. There will be more to come on my summer to do list so be sure to check in all summer long.
