Healthy Home Tips Inside & Out

Tip #1
Pheew does your window smell like dirt? If your windows are dirty you better clean them or else you might be letting in more than just fresh air this autumn.
  1. Vacuum your window frame, window track, and window sill. 
  2. If you have a window screen you can remove it and shake it off.  
  3. Next clean the inside and outside of your window using windex. 
  4. Replace your screen & you're in business!
This article from Good Housekeeping has a great way to clean your windows using vinegar, newspaper, and some elbow grease. We like it because it eliminates using harsh chemicals and might save you some money! 

Tip #2
Here's a great tip involving a broomstick, microfiber cloth, and rubber bands or tape. This tip is easy and effective at removing webs, but won't kill friendly spiders that keep the insects away.

What you will need:
  • Long broom
  • Microfiber cloth
  • Two rubber bands or masking tape
  1. Cover the bristle of your broom with the microfiber cloth
  2. Secure the cloth using rubber bands or tape
  3. Dust away the cobwebs
  4. Afterwards you can shake it off and machine wash the microfiber cloth
