This is a sponsored post on behalf of SC Johnson for Pledge®. All thoughts and opinions are my own as I share how to clean dirty windowsills.
The weather is warming up outside here in Texas. I decided to open the window and oh my goodness… gross to the ultimate gross. I almost slammed the window shut. Seriously what has the maid been doing around here if she can’t make sure my windows are clean top and bottom… Oh wait the “maid” is me that’s why 🙂 Thankfully I have just the right tools to clean dirty windowsills. Here is a little Spring Cleaning 101 for you today.
Walmart is my go to place for getting my cleaning supplies at a good cost so that I can have a variety of tools to get my house back to clean. I like to have products that can be used for a variety of surfaces. I don’t like clutter and don’t want to have 5000 bottles of cleaners in my house when you can have one like Pledge® Multi Surface Antibacterial Everyday Cleaner.

Here are the steps I use to Clean Dirty Windowsills:
- Get a small brush like an old toothbrush or I was able to find this grout cleaning brush. This will help you work out some of the gunk that has settled in to the grooves.
- Take your vacuum and suck out the loose dirt.
- Spray the area with Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner and while using a towel wipe up the dirt that is left. I recommend using a regular towel versus paper towels because it will give you the texture for scrubbing better. This may take a couple of rounds depending upon how bad your maid has been. haha
- Clean the windows as well since the Pledge® Multi Surface Everyday Cleaner can be used here.
I guess maybe I should keep moving on with the deeper cleaning of my house since it has been pretty neglected over the winter months. I love the feeling of getting the house clean and knocking out those dust bunnies that tend to multiply. When you have a cleaner that does the work of several that really helps the process along. Spring cleaning doesn’t have to be a horrible chore I promise.
So I want to know what tips do you have for Spring Cleaning? How well does your maid clean dirty windowsills or is she just as bad as me?
