Windex Turns 75! {Giveaway}

I really don’t enjoy cleaning but this tip above, found on the Windex Facebook page, reminds me that cleaning is a blessing. If I’m picking up toys, washing clothes, or cleaning smudged handprints off a window it means that I have little people in my life that made those messes. How many parents of unborn children or those that have lost children would give anything to have those little mess makers in their lives? Cleaning would be a lot more enjoyable if, instead of being frustrated about yet another mess, I remembered what I had to be thankful for. I’ve also heard of parents using their cleaning time to pray for their children. Both make cleaning a joyful time instead of one that is dreaded.

Another thing that makes cleaning enjoyable is using products that actually work. Having to go back and reclean something that I just cleaned makes me frustrated. I have some “go to” cleaning products and when it comes to cleaning mirrors, windows, and faucets that product is Windex. I’ve tried other blue liquids thinking they would work the same and I was wrong. My bathroom mirrors were never spotless like they are when I used Windex.

Windex is celebrating 75 “years of shine” this year so in honor of that I am happy to be hosting a giveaway for one lucky reader!

    I am thankful for cleaning because I have a place to call home. There are too many people that don’t have the privilages of having a place to call home. Besides, it is my job as a stay at home mom to keep our house neat and clean. Even if I had a job, I would want to work in a clean environment. If I win the Windex products, I will put them to good use by cleaning all the windows in the house, mirrors, and fausets. Thank you!

  40. My husband and I were both told at young ages we would never have kids (he had cancer and I have terrible ovarian cysts) so my daughter, while a surprise, was a HUGE blessing! I’ve got such a great life and am so super happy. I’m spoiled and have a family who loves me despite my many flaws. I’ve got a Savior who also forgives me for those flaws and loves me unconditionally. It’s an amazing life for sure to be thankful for, even while cleaning.
