Spring Window Cleaning

It is that time of the year again!  The weather is warming and the birds are singing.  The signs of winter are quickly becoming a memory.  Early spring is a great time to get the remnants of winter out of the house.  Open those windows and circulate that fresh air!

Dry the condensation on the windows and clean the window sill.  Use a paste of baking soda and water to remove any mold or dirt stains in the tracks.  Clean windows with a vinegar/water solution and a squeegee.  Remove dirt from window screens by wiping both sides gently with a microfiber cloth.  Spray with an ample amount of vinegar, wipe with a damp sponge, then rinse with warm water.  Repeat on the other side of the window.

Dust blinds with a microfiber cloth.  Launder curtains and spray with your favorite freshener.

To make your own air freshener spray, grind a few teaspoons of your favorite spices (cloves, rosemary, oregano, or thyme), or add some essential oils (lemon or lavender) to distilled water with a few teaspoons of vodka.  Shake up and mist on curtains and around room.

Breathe deeply, and relax!
