    "A heartfelt, personal story of the gradual awakening of a woman who comes to see that preferring the 'human to the perfect' does not alienate her from authentic spirituality but allows her to live more fully."

    A quick and easy way to clean your sliding glass doors and tall windows

    Living in beautiful sunny South Florida, most of us have sliding glass doors in every room of our home and some are lucky enough to have the ocean on the other side of that door. =) This tip will be most useful for those living near the ocean battling ocean spray and/or serious wind and rain.

    The easiest way to clean sliding glass door is to use dishwasher detergent!

    What you’ll need:

    • Bucket – a rectangular that fits your squeegee combo set is best; it’s quicker and neater.
    • Dishwasher liquid detergent
    • Rubber gloves
    • 10 microfiber rags
    • 1 scrubber/squeegee combo

    Here’s how*: Fill a bucket with warm and a tablespoon of dishwasher soap. Swirl the mixture a few times to dissolve the soap. Soak the cloth side of your squeegee until its fully saturated. Squeeze out excess water but be sure to leave enough so that you still have plenty of water when you reach the bottom of the pane. Starting at the top left hand side of the windowpane, work your way to the right and down working the scrubber in an s-shape squiggle until you reach the very bottom. At the bottom, immediately lift up the scrubber pad so that you don’t have water pooling at the bottom. Next, flip over to the squeegee side – Very important – wipe down the rubber strip with your dry microfiber cloth so that the strip is completely dry. With the same left, right, down, left movement, work your way to the bottom of the pane. You might see some thin strips of moisture or splatters left of the glass, wipe those dry right away. The result is a gleaming just like you’d get with your cups! =)

    *This technique should only be used on glass that does not have tint/darkening film. Most films are applied to the interior of windows to avoid excessive weather damage but you should check on this before you start.
