Window Cleaner

Yesterday I spent the morning washing all my outside windows using a squeegee, bucket and the following ingredients: 1/2 C. Vinegar, 2 T. Corn Starch , 1/2 C. Ammonia and one gallon warm water. My windows came out clean and it was much cheaper than using a store bought cleaner.

You may be wondering why corn starch? Well, it is the key ingredient to making your windows sparkle! Now, I just read you should never mix Vinegar and Ammonia together because they cancel each other out. I don't know if that is true, because my windows came out really clean, but next time I will try using one or the other and see how I like the end result. Also, you will not want to add corn starch to anything you might want to store, like a spray bottle, as it will start to smell.

Awww Nuts!

The adorable little squirrels would be great for anything Fallish or for your favorite guy. Is that even a word? lol I used one as a thank you card for my in-laws hosting Thanksgiving dinner last year. Also, after I took these pictures, I added a stamp from My Pink Stampers stamp collection that said "Awww Nuts!" It was the perfect touch.
