How to make the most of your outdoor space as the pandemic drags on into fall and winter

 

This Indiana cold snap has us digging out sweatshirts. Invites for backyard meetups are becoming BYOB (Bring Your Own Blanket), and mugs of hearty chili are replacing summer IPAs. Fire pits and firewood are hot items as we look for ways to make patios and decks cozier on brisk nights.

We wonder: Will we be eating Thanksgiving dinner swaddled in puffy coats, sitting 6 feet from one another or sipping chicken soup while watching gram live stream her Cajun turkey?

The Best Way to Clean Windows

Ideally, windows should be washed twice a year, but it’s a task most people don’t look forward to. Part of what makes DIY window cleaning such a chore is that homeowners insist on doing it with wadded-up paper towels or newspaper, spray cleaner, and a ton of elbow grease.

All that rubbing isn’t a good idea. You’re just moving dirt around from one spot to another and putting a static charge on the glass, which attracts dust and dirt. As soon as you finish, the window looks dirty again.

It’s easier and more effective to clean windows like the pros do: with a squeegee and a few other readily available tools. The techniques aren’t complicated and the results may surprise you!

Here are two 3-step methods for how to get streak-free windows at home; one for picture windows and another for multipane windows. Got stubborn spots? Refer to the last section to help you with those.
