My mom always said there’s something very spiritual about washing your windows. Her theory on this is that the windows are the eyes of your home and by washing the windows, you’re opening up those eyes to let the sun shine in. It’s a newish year, and if you’re an American, we have a brand spanking new President. It’s a good time to wash your windows and bring in the new.
Now, it might be too cold where you live to wash your windows outside, but you can certainly do a bang-up job on the insides of the windows, at least. A lot of people swear by vinegar and newspaper to wash their windows, but I personally like some Windex® (or the generic kind, most likely) and a blue shop towel. No matter what method you use, just get it done. That way, next time someone mentions they don’t know the last time they washed their windows, you can say you in fact, DO know when you washed your windows – day after inaguration day. Easy peasy.
Of course you could pick any other holiday or time of the year. Some people include window washing in their spring cleaning. The main thing is to pick a time that is obvious to you and easy to remember.
When do you wash your windows?
