We are almost done with this challenge. I hope your home is looking great. If you want to follow along for the rest of the challenge or do the challenge later, be sure to grab Crystal’s free ebook.
Today, I did the complete list of the challenge.
Here’s the tasks for today,
- Get dressed.
- Make a to do list of 5-7 items to accomplish today.
- Complete your Morning Routine
- Set a timer for 15 minutes and wipe down the windowsills
- Clean your windows and Blinds
The first three are things I do each day already, so those tasks were easy for me to get done. Here’s how the rest of my tasks went along with the photos,
Wipe Down Windowsills
I usually wipe down the windowsills each week when I clean the windows. But the slider can be missed. I always vacuum it but as you can see by the photo it’s not enough.
I don’t know why so much dirt gets caught in the track. It must be coming in from outside.
After I scrubbed a bit and had to use a screwdriver to get the dirt out of the cracks, I remembered why I don’t really like this job. But it’s done now and it looks so much better.
Cleaning the Window Blinds
My window blinds always seem to build up a layer of dust. I usually will use the steam cleaner on them but today I gave my e-cloth a try. It worked really quite well at removing the dust. It was still quite a bit of work, but I don’t know really how to get around wiping each and every slat to get them clean. That’s why this job is always so much fun. 🙁
No more hairy dust on the blinds. They are nice and clean now. How does that dust stick so well to them anyway? It must get baked on from the sun.
My daughter went through all of her yarn and fabric bags. As you can see she had lots of little pieces of fabric and yarn to get rid of today. So our purge pile is pretty big today. 🙂
On Friday, I’ll be cleaning out my medicine cupboard and doing something I love.
How did you do on cleaning your blinds?
