Weekly Chore Prompt: Wash inside windows
Monday, May 18, 2015
Hello and happy Monday! The much needed rain has passed in my area for now so I enjoyed looking out my front windows at all the pretty green. There is something so perfect about spring green after a rain. While enjoying my view, I decided that it was the perfect time to tackle inside windows, we’ll tackle outside soon.
I’ve received valuable feedback from friends online, and surprisingly offline regarding my chore prompts. You prefer my quick call to action prompts versus a how-to write up, so I’ll stick with that moving forward. Thanks again for the emails and chats friends!
I would be an unhappy person if my world didn’t have windows! I enjoy my views from almost every window in our home. I share this love of our views with my cats and my kids. While we are bird watching, the cats are leaving little wet nose prints and the kids- well, they leave a little more. Sometimes sticky finger prints, often times their nose prints too!
Pick an over-cast day to wash your inside windows. You’ll see streaks easier that way. Sometimes I use paper towels and a window cleaner to spot clean my inside windows, making sure the room is cat and kid free before starting.
For full window cleaning- where I’m cleaning the glass and the window casing and seals, I prefer to use micro-fiber cleaning clothes and window cleaner.
I know some of you prefer to use DIY cleaners made with vinegar and I’ve tried some different recipes. Unfortunately, my windows look cloudy afterwards, so I stick with a low odor window cleaner and I ventilate the room.
That’s it! We are slowly working our way to a clean home. Enjoy your view this week!
