March 18th

Tried to go outside for a while but it turned into a wind storm. I`ve been doing spring cleaning as you know, and with a wood stove the job is twice as much fun. What a wood stove saves on heating, it makes your spring cleaning even more harder. Everything seems to get a black film on it. Mirrors, windows, etc. Have to make sure you have plenty of window cleaner on hand.

Here is a great household cleaning recipe for window cleaner made using things you probably already have around your house.

3 tablespoons ammonia
1 tablespoon white vinegar
3/4 cup water
2 drops blue food coloring

And if you`re looking for the Old Fashion Version, try this one;

Window Cleaner

This is the old-fashioned variety.

1/2 cup ammonia
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup white distilled vinegar
1 bucket warm water

Dry the windows with two towels.(paper) The second towel will make windows sparkle. NOTE: If cold weather, add 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol to the above mixture to prevent ice from forming on 
your windows.
Happy Spring Cleaning!

Keep It Clean!
