This month we are focusing on Summertime and Family Fun activities. Get ready for some great ideas, inspiration and how to as you move along through the blog hop.
You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Rhonda at MultiTaskingMaven on our Living with Style Blog Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you make sure to see and learn from all of the articles featured here today.
In my living room, we have a 16 foot wall that is stone halfway up and mirror the other half. I’m not crazy about it, but it came with the house. 🙂 The mirror does make the living room seem much larger. In fact, we had some friends over visiting one day and their four year old little boy was looking up in the mirror and asked, “How do we get to that room?” Cute, right? We all laughed and explained it was just a mirror.
Well, the mirror is attached to the wall above the fireplace and when we use the fireplace in the winter, the glass has a tendency to become a little dusty. It has to be cleaned often because I just can’t stand seeing the smoke/dust/streaks on the glass. We also have an enclosed sort of three-season front porch that is all glass. It, too, has to be cleaned several times a year because of dust, weather, fingerprints and dog nose prints.
I’ve always been a Windex girl and haven’t found any product, in my opinion, that cleans as well as Windex. Well, I decided there must be a better (or I’d settle for as-good-as) and less expensive way to clean all this glass. I did some research for home recipes and here’s what I found that works best, in my opinion.
When you see how easy it is to create this recipe and how well it cleans, you’ll wonder why you didn’t think to try this before!
Window Cleaner Recipe
2 cups water
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Dawn dish soap ( you can substitute other brands, but I recommend Dawn)
You simply combine these ingredients into an empty spray bottle. That’s it. That’s the whole recipe! I actually made a bucket of window cleaner and used my sponge/squeegee, being sure to dry off the squeegee between wipes.
I hope I have convinced you to give this recipe for Window Cleaner a try. I know I was skeptical at first, but it really works!
