Pinner said: My neighbor's house always had the clearest windows EVER! One day I helped her with some spring-cleaning. She didn't use a single paper towel or commercial cleaner but mixed 2 cups hot water with ¼ cup vinegar & 1 TBS of cornstarch, shook in spray bottle & spritzed the windows, then wiped down w/ crumpled newspaper. Unlike paper or cloth towels, newspaper is absorbent without leaving lint behind. This homemade window wash solution w/ newspaper works like NOTHING else!

Place pillows in the dryer with a couple of tennis balls to help get them back to their “fluff stage” and kill germs with the high heat. This is sooo important...I actually learned (in college) about all the molds that can grow in pillows if you don't do this and let me just say...DO THIS. Scary AND gross.
