I finally found out today what most newspapers are really good for – cleaning windows!
I had read years ago that newpaper was much better for cleaning windows than paper towels are. I think I read it in an Erma Bombeck column (she was one of my mother’s favorite columnists). Erma was full of really good hints and tips, and wrote very humorously on most subjects. I think most women could really relate to her stories! RIP, Erma.
Back to the windows. You probably read that we are expecting house guests this week. Now, it’s not that I think my nephew will roam around the house looking for dust bunnies, but having guests is a good motivator for getting things done that should have been done ages ago!
Like windows. Unlike my mother, whose windows (and house) were always spotless, mine aren’t. Luckily, living in the ‘campo’ with ever-present dust around, I have a good excuse for dingy windows, but they finally reached even my limit. Wind-driven dust and rain spots on the outside. Yuk!
It took me 2 hours to wash all the windows in the house, and we only have a 2 bedroom house! My mother would have been horrified.
