Day 188: My New Cleaning Cloth for Windows and Glass Gives me a Crystal Clear Perspective

Minky M Cloth

I saw this Minky M Cloth (for glass and windows) online and it caught my attention due to the fact that you don’t need to use chemicals and it supposedly gives the windows a crystal clear finish. It was only £3 so I added it to my grocery shopping order and it arrived today.

After dinner I dampened the cloth and thought I’d just try it out on the patio door that leads into the conservatory. I was so impressed that I did all of the internal conservatory windows and the front lounge window (just rinsing one or two times in total). The picture below shows the cloth close up as well as the difference between the smeary window (right) and clean smear and streak free window (left).

Using the Mink M cloth to clean the windows

As months of dirt were lifted, the lounge and conservatory looked instantly brighter. My husband and I were so impressed. It only took me about 10-15 minutes and it was such a transformation, and the cloth was very easy and pleasant to use. Amazing invention!

Why am I making such a big deal about it?

As I cut through this clutter around the house day by day, it’s giving me clarity; however, I can sometimes still feel stuck. I can’t helping thinking that the resulting clean windows will symbolise how clearer we are going to see things as we step into the next phase… whatever that is.

In her book 10-minute Feng Shui Room by Room, Skye Alexander says…

In Feng Shui, windows symbolize eyes. Clean windows help you see things clearly. Dirty ones can cause confusion and limit your perspective.

I will work on the rest of the windows around the house tomorrow. I might even get the girls involved.

Dusting is next

I have a new long-poled duster arriving tomorrow which can only help clear more dirt away. I really feel that the windows and the dusting could be the start of the new cleaning regime that is bubbling around in my mind. I just needed a kick start. More on that tomorrow.

Until then…

  1. How well do those work on the outside of the windows? Once I assigned certain cleaning tasks to certain days and stuck with them, I found that they took less time than if I kept putting them off. I can get my 2 1/2 bathrooms clean in just under a 1/2 hour. It was always the anticipation of doing a job I didn’t like that I kept putting it off and it ended up taking so much longer.

    • I haven’t tried it on the outside of the windows yet as the window cleaner only came round a week or so ago. I think it would work well though with a bit more water on the cloth and maybe a dry one to finish (they’ve gone down to £2.50 now so I’ve put another one in my shopping basket). If I get round to trying it out on the outside, I’ll pop back and leave another comment
