Wednesday Wisdom: Window Cleaning

Ok, so most blogs have adorable theme postings based on a certain day of the week.  I'm hoping I didn't "take"the Wednesday Wisdom title, I came up with it at 2am when I was awake with my youngest who has a horrible cold right now.  If I did, I truely apologize and meant no harm.  Imitation is the best form of flattery is it not? (even if it is unintentional :)

For today's post I thought I would let everyone (if anyone is actually out there lol) know that you CAN actually clean your mirrors and windows with newspaper! 

Yes, I know that "tip"has been around forever, but I was leary of it and didn't believe it myself.  But I found myself without paper towels (we never use them in this house, have switched to napkins, cloths etc instead) and needed to clean my windows.  I have been using this window cleaning device I bought at the local dollar store that looks like a squeege but actually has a washable microfibre cloth on it.  It didn't work well.

So, with a housefull of people coming for a batism and birthday party I thought I'd try this newspaper tip I had heard about.  I used the plain insert that seperates the flyers from the actual news in the weekend paper and WOW!  I couldn't believe it!  No streaks, no spots, no dirt!  It worked great!  We can see through our picture window without any cloudy obstruction :)

SO...if you need to clean your windows or mirrors, finish reading your morning paper with your coffee or tea and then pick up your cleaner and get to it!  You will be surprised at the results!
