My Easy Window Washing Secret Revealed

I really hate window washing – and truly hate climbing a ladder to wash high outdoor windows.  So when my hubby and I came up with a solution to washing our high windows that get layered with salt spray that actually worked fabulously, I knew I had to share.  It is my easy window washing secret!

We own a little vacation home on the Washington coast, which will sometime in the future be a full time home for us, when we escape city life and settle down for life in the small beach  community, called Seabrook.  I shared a bit of our story on how we saved our pennies for years to get the funds for this dream of mine in my ebook, Become a Frugali$ta.  It was a true sacrifice and took planning and a blessing from the Lord as well.

Until we move to this spot full time, we rent our home – so we take pride in keeping it in tip top shape, which includes having windows that sparkle so you can see the ocean view.  (About a year ago, The House Of Turquoise shared our home on her blog, it was a fabulous coincidence – so jump over and take a peak inside!)

Okay, back to washing windows!!!

We have developed a system for our outside high and low windows which makes washing them very simple and frugal.  We use Young Living’s Thieves Household Cleaner, which is a concentrated cleaner, so we can mix up just the right solution we need to get the scum off our windows.  We also use this cleaner for all other household cleaning, like tubs, showers, toilets, floors, counters, inside widows, dusting, ovens and more.  We do not buy any other cleaner now.

Why do I love Thieves?

It has incredible cleansing power and an even safer, more sustainable formulation. It contains ingredients from renewable plant and mineral sources, vegetable-based surfactants, and Thieves and lemon essential oils for extra cleaning power.  It is an all-in-one solution for all surfaces.  No toxins, no chemicals and no risk!

I love this simple chart explaining the cost savings of it versus other cleaners that Niki Faris created.

Yep, it is a cost saver, plus it is safe for our entire family – even our pets.  (By the way, I really love it for pet stains too – it is amazing in the carpet cleaner!)  And even though this video is for washing outside windows, it is just as easy to use indoors and I either use a rag and wipe clean or use the squeegee that comes in the kit I share about below.

Here is a short video showing how we use this tool, the Ettore 17050 All Purpose Window Cleaning Combo Kit and the cleaner to wash our windows at our beach home.  It is easy, quick and effective.

To view the video, you will want to click thru to the blog post.  There is a bit of wind noise, as it is always breezy at the beach, but you will hear me explaining the process.

Isn’t that fabulously easy?

For those who want to know where to grab some Thieves Household Cleaner,  you can get it as a retail customer with Young Living or at a savings of 24% with your wholesale membership.
