    Spring cleaning.

    My wife is recovering from surgery and I'm doing spring cleaning this year.
    Whew!! what a job!! There's enough dust on top of the refrigerator and kitchen cabinets to grow an herb garden.
    I've been going at it for 3 days now and it'll take at least another 4-5 more before I'll finish .
    Is there an easy way to clean venetion blinds, as it takes me about an hour for each window?

    Good luck brother,
    The easiest way i have found is to hire a nanny.




    Hope your wife recovers quickly from her surgery, thoughts/ prayers.
    YEAH, IM THE BERRIES, AND CHERRIES IN YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR.

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    Well if they are the plastic ones, if you take them down and put them in the tub with some water (and bleach if they are white), let them soak for a half hour a so, and than take a wash cloth and just wipe them down quick while they are in the water yet, than drain the water and let them dry, than hang them back up. Hope that helps.

    Those duster thingys are ok, but until my hubby decides to get the ducts cleaned, there is always dust blowing around. Dusting is getting old!!! LOL

    I take blinds down, hang up up in backyard and hose them down and wipe down with soapy sponge.

    The easiest way to clean them is to........(wait for it, wait for it)


    leave them dirty until your wife gets better and then tell her to do it.



    Hope she gets well soon

    Am I really going to have to be the one to suggest you take them to the carwash? Yup, seems so.

    If a pressure washer won't work it didn't need cleaning.

    Just wait for your wife to get better! If she's anything like mine, you'll only get into trouble for not cleaning them correctly anyway!

    Seriously, I hope she is on the road to a quick recovery.
