I did do as I said I would and started on the front room, then decided that as it was going to be another warm day with a strong breeze to change our bedding, to wash the woollen blanket that was coming off as well as the cotton ones that were going on.

So as the chair covers were being washed it seemed silly not to do the cobwebs before I vacuumed and as I was brushing around the window frame thought it would be a good idea to take the net curtains down, give the flyscreens a brush and clean the actual windows.
So out with the steps, down with the curtains and a short while later clean windows.
Inside and Out lol
For years all I’ve used is a soft cloth dunked in a bucket containing warm water along with a drop of bleach and a drop of washing up detergent, then rung out well, dried them with a piece of newspaper and never had streaks.
I believe in using easy ways and have the same no fuss attitude with the nets.
I soak them in the laundry trough in warm water with washing powder, roll them over the edge into the machine, give a short spin then rinse with fresh cold water in the machine followed by a very light spin. I've learned that hanging them wet means they dry with no creases.
We now have a nice tidy room that has a clean floor (under as well as around the furniture ) along with clean windows and window furnishings and no cobwebs:))
All the baby clothes are in the car and the only question I have now is - how long is it going to take to sort out all of the ‘ornaments’ I cleared off the table next to my chair that are now residing in a plastic bag, the bags of wool and other paraphernalia that was behind the chair and the various books that were on the floor beside the chair??
Most of it does have a proper home but at the moment it is now sitting just inside the spare room door waiting for me to have another burst of energy lol
