With Mother’s Day nearly here, it might be a good idea to start thinking about what to get Mom. While anyone can give her flowers, candy or dinner at a restaurant, why not forgo the old “disposable” gifts, and instead put a little imagination into her special day this year?
Think about it—your mom is most likely an inspiring, amazing, wonderful lady, so why shouldn’t her gift be as well? After all, this is the woman who makes your favorite meal when you’re home, washes (and probably folds) your laundry without complaint, forgoes her own needs in order to meet yours and a litany of other tasks that help your life run smoothly.
To that point, why not help Mom (or wife or grandmother) out by doing what she’s done for you for so long? Give a gift that keeps on giving: a clean house. The following tips are sure to help spark an alternative approach for the second Sunday in May:
• Do the windows. The following solution will give windows a streak- and smudge-free shine: Combine one gallon of water to one-half cup of vinegar, one-half cup of rubbing alcohol and about two squirts of Dawn dishwashing liquid. Pour into a spray bottle, and use newspaper instead of paper towels to make windows shine.
