This month and next is all about spring cleaning and getting your home tidied up quickly and easily with as little fuss as possible. I hope you’ve grabbed the FREE Spring Cleaning Checklist and discovered some great tools for a spring cleaning bucket.  Today I’m sharing my favorite method for washing windows (this isn’t the first time I’ve shared this method so the pics might look familiar) and how to use the window washing tools.  This method really is the best – it’s quick, easy and will make your windows shine!
