If your house is anything like ours, your blinds and windows get super dirty, super fast.
We live in a small community and the wind is constantly blowing. We have loads of farms and fields, so the dust can get really bad. Each spring and fall I try to clean my windows and blinds. So I thought I'd share what works great for me.
Start by filling your bucket 1/4 full of warm water. Add about 1/2 cup vinegar. Mix it a bit.
Now take an old sock. Put it on your hand and dip it in the water/vinegar mixture. I start at the top and pull my sock along the top and bottom of each section of my blinds. You might think it will take forever, but I can get one set of blinds done in about 10 minutes. I usually will put another sock on my opposite hand and use that one to dry. So I clean and dry at the same time.
Next, I use a q-tip to clean out all the junk that gets stuck in the cracks and crevices. It is gross because I usually have flies, yuck. Just dip the q-tip in some of the vinegar mix and get cleaning.
Now clean the actual window. I use Windex and clean both the inside and outside. I also remove the screen and vacuum or wipe it down.
Some of my windows also have curtains so I make sure to take them down and put the in the wash as well. They get really gross and full of dust.
Now go clean some windows :)
