My dryer loves to eat socks.
I don’t know why. Maybe they taste good; but it seems like every time I wash a load of laundry I lose a sock.
What do you do with your misfit socks? I keep mine with my cleaning products and use them as dusting cloths around the house. They work pretty well, actually.
Last week, I used a few to clean mini-blinds and they were perfect for the job. (Thank you for the idea, Pinterest!) I thought that with spring in the air and thoughts of cleaning in the back of your minds, I would share my secret to clean blinds.
I’m sure if you are an avid reader of my blog, you’ve heard me mention my “everything” cleaner. I’m not lying. I really do use this stuff for everything!
My “everything” cleaner is fruit peels fermented in vinegar for two weeks. I know it sounds gross, but it is super easy to do and works on everything! (Place fruit peels in a mason jar. Fill the jar with vinegar. Tighten the lid and let it sit for two weeks. Pour one cup of the solution in a spray bottle and fill the spray bottle with water.)
Back to my blind cleaning extravaganza.
I took an old sock and put it on my hand like I would a sock puppet. Then, I sprayed the “everything” cleaner on what would be the sock puppets mouth. Take the sock puppets mouth and clean one blind at a time using the sock to clean both front and back of the blind. Start at the top and work your way down for beautiful shiny blinds. Check it out!
