The sun's higher trajectory spills fresh rays of golden light into our homes. Don't let dust and grime impede your enjoyment of this natural spirit lifter. The body makes vitamin D when skin is directly exposed to the sun, and most people meet at least some of their vitamin D needs this way. Skin exposed to sunshine indoors through a window will not produce vitamin D. Check out this link for more info on Vitamin D. Though you will not increase your vitamin D intake with clean windows, odds are you will experience positive health benefits by keeping the windows clean. The extra sun will make you feel good. We all want to feel good.
Though it's still cold, the 10 day forecast is showing some upper 40's in the next week. While that's not a heat wave, it won't be long until we can fling the windows open and let that spring breeze wander into our homes to kick that winter stuffiness out. Skip the Windex! There are easier, less toxic ways to clean that glass. Wads of paper towel and windex is a comfort technique for some people. It's how they have always done it. 2014 is a good year to try something new. A couple of drops of dish soap and a bucket of warm water will give a great cleaning medium. We prefer Mrs. Myers products for the wide range of scents available and the eco friendly company policies, though other commercial dish soaps will work just as well. Pick up a few microfiber rags. They are the modern miracle of cleaning. There are a variety of manufacturers and grades of quality. For a cost effective rag that does the job, check out Amazon Basics. A higher quality microfiber cloth can be purchased from Yvonne's Original. Use one microfiber cloth to wash the window. Use a second, dry cloth to clean the window. Use a third dry cloth to remove all streaks and perfect that shine. A squeegee can be substituted for the second step if you have the skills. Here is a step by step window cleaning link.
If that seems like too much work, you can always call on Oso Clean to take care of your windows for you. We love the satisfaction of removing buckets of dirt and grime from our customer's windows.
