1/4 cup white vinegar (apple cider vinegar will work as well) 1/4 cup isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol 1 Tbsp non-GMO cornstarch (the cornstarch reduces streaking — anyone know why?) 2 cups water 8-10 drops essential oil of choice (optional. Lemon, orange, or another citrus would be my choice here, but lavender or others would be nice as well. A good glass spray bottle or quality BPA-free plastic spray bottle.
1. Combine everything in a spray bottle (You can reuse the container you already have from your store bought glass cleaner. I had to buy one at a dollar store since we haven't used glass cleaner in years :-)!)
2. Shake well to mix.
3. Spray onto glass surface and wipe clean.
Swedish Death Cleaning
It is not an easy thing to talk about but eventually we all leave this life. We all will experience the passing of a loved one and we all will have to spend time dispersing the belongings of our loved ones who have passed. Have you ever thought about making it easier on the people who are going to be left with the task of clearing out your belongings?
I know I do not wish my son the project of spending hours getting rid of bunch of junk after I pass on or re-emerge into non-physical for those of you who are more spiritual. I want to make sure my things are in a relatively orderly fashion just in case someone has to clean them all out.
The Swedish refer to this process as Death Cleaning. A process to rid the house of nearly all of the clothes, furniture, dishes, art, photos and keepsakes that a family will not want to clean up when someone dies.
Your stuff may literally haunt your family when you’re gone. Something to think about isn't it? Death cleaning is for all of us.
Below is my Tip Time Thursday on Decluttering the belongings of a loved one. I made it after the death of my mom. Mom, I love you.
