Clean the Windows

October 14, 2010

After all the pollen, dust, leaves of autumn, my windows are dirty outside and inside. There are many reasons to keep your windows clean – dirty windows are an insidious form of clutter. The film creeps up on us slowly so we don’t notice that our view/vision of the outside world is getting cloudier. And there is a connection between our personal clarity and the clarity of our world. Tell me, who likes a dirty bathroom mirror? Spring and Fall are great times to wash windows, inside and out. City dwellers deal with more things that accumulate on windows. If you can’t clean outside, at least keep up with the inside of your windows.

Read this good post by Stephanie Bennett Vogt about the Feng Shui of clean windows. And then consider making your own window cleaner instead of spraying (and consequently breathing) toxic Windex or other window sprays.

Window Cleaner recipe:

2 tsp  white vinegar

3 cups water

1 cup alcohol (optional) helps evaporate more quickly

Put in spray bottle, shake and spray. Lasts forever.

Wipe with newspaper or paper towels (if you must) or cotton rags.

    Honestly, some times the two of us are just so darn in synch. I just cleaned my windows 2 days ago! Thanks for the good recipe for glass cleaner!
