It's Window Washing Time!

Let's Go! It's time to wash away the winter grime from the windows and let the sunshine in. Spring is on the way! Yeah! OK... I'm trying to get myself excited about it, but it just isn't happening. I tried. I'm tackling it one room at a time. The blinds are also covered in dust. Blinds should really be outlawed along with carpets. They are disgusting dust mite hotels. The blinds in the kitchen are the worst. They accumulate grease from cooking and it forms a horrid greasy-dusty concoction.

All the blinds got put into the bathtub and got soaked in warm water and a mild soap solution to loosen the dust and grime. They'll sit there for a few hours.

In the meantime, I recruited my crew to help out (such a handsome crew too). We mixed a 2 gallon bucket of warm water and 1 tsp. of rubbing alcohol, a capful of ammonia and 5 drops of dish detergent. I got this handy dandy recipe from this month's "All You" magazine. The recipe calls for ammonia or dish detergent but I used both. They took a sponge and went to work also getting the frame and window sill. A coffee filter also is a great lint free cloth to clean with. They did a great job. I'm glad its done for another year. No comments about child labor please ;) You missed a spot.
