Okay. Here we are in the COVID Lockdown and we have all the time in the world. Kitchen and laundry cupboards are Marie Kondo-ed. I look around. What else have I been meaning to do for ever and ever….Windows! But I don’t have window cleaner left in my cupboard! What to do?
Don my protective mask and make a mercy dash to the supermarket, risking life and limb….
Stare at the grime and cobwebs and try to visualise a clean vista….
Make your own window cleaner…..
If you choose number 3 like me, you will be blown away at how easy it is! You’ll wonder why you never did it before? And yay, no need to ever buy plastic disposable bottles again, as you will just keep refilling your repurposed bottle. It’s a win-win for all!
Easy Peasy Window Cleaner
* Combine 1 cup white vinegar with 1/4 – 1/2 tspn dishwashing liquid soap and 1 cup warm water (optional: you can add 2 drops essential lemon oil for better smelling cleaner!)
* Pour into an old spray bottle, spray onto windows or glass, and only if very grimy, wipe first with a damp cloth.
* I use scrunched up newspaper to clean/dry at the same time. Messy for hands but non-streaky for windows. You can avoid blackened hands by wearing gloves.
(Oh, and just in case you were wondering – my windows are normally only cleaned 2x a year! If that. I have much better things to do than being anal about clean windows!!)
So how about planning to clean those windows you have been meaning to do for so long now? And then sit down with a cuppa and appreciate the view!
