I washed the windows in the kitchen and lounge/dining room this week.
If, like me, you are not very into actual, fairdinkum housework you may be under the impression that there's not much to washing a window. Just grab a lint free cloth and your homemade citrus vinegar, shine the window (or in my case scrub the window) and you're done, right?
Well I'm here to tell you that it's not that straightforward. I discovered heaps of pitfalls along the way. Firstly, I only wanted to wash ONE window. I discovered to my horror that, although I had been living with filthy windows for ages and didn't even notice them, once I had one shiny, sparkling window, the others looked HORRENDOUS!! Suddenly they were all I could see and the windows seemed to be closing in on me with their dirty blobs, water splashes and fly poo.
There was only one thing I could do. I attacked the other windows. I figured that would make me feel good. They would all be clean and shiny. How nice! ...........How very naive of me.
So you have been warned. There is nothing simple about washing your windows. It is bigger than Ben Hur. Do it at your own peril.
