The Mini Pressure Washer

There is something about this time of year that always puts me into a dither of organization and cleaning. It could be that I am preparing my nest for winter hibernation or is it  that I am following my mother in law's rules to do a total fall and spring cleaning every year? Either way, I am on it, leaving the depths of winter for more creative endeavors.
Yes, this is gross but I bet yours are no better unless you just moved into a brand new home, right? The windows on the side of the house that face the prevailing westerly winds seem to accumulate more than their share of dead bugs and debris over the summer, right through the screens.   I am always after them but it seems the actual cleaning, while working somewhat, just pushes and condenses the crap deeper into the corners. Then the light went on!!!

Because of her work, DD#2 keeps us well in stock on the latest dental appliances out there and this water pik is no longer necessary. It has now been ordained my mini pressure washer. Sure, I have often envied DH and his big pressure washing machine and all the magical power it has. But now I have one of my own. I took the the Mini PW, aka, Water Pik, to the window and spread towels on the sills and floor. Then I sprayed the sill with some cleaner and let that sit a few minutes. After that I just let my machine rip. The crap goes flying all over so you really need those towels but wowsa, instant spotless window sills. Wipe it all up, let dry, put a new coat of paint on the sills and looky here: Magic

All clean and pretty and ready for the screens to come off and be shut for winter. My mother in law would be very proud.

I then proceeded to use my mini PW on that nasty area where the faucets meet the sink, more magic! This is my new toy. No more of this one on my teeth but Dr. Elliott will take care of that!

I just had to share......Bunny

  2. Could you take the screens off first and spray all the crap out the window? And that's a beautiful deep window well.

  3. Hey, lol I want one of those! Ha! :) Those seem like it would be nice to have for cleaning those small areas you can't get a washcloth into and etc. Hmm, interesting! Thanks for the share. :)

  6. Brilliant! I have an even worse problem since mine also face a busy street and get grimy so very quickly.

  7. Pretty slick, that Water Pik! (Sorry) I just may have to get one. We never take the screens off as we don't get that nasty ice and snow so we have a full year of bugs and dirt to clean.

  8. Who else would've thought of it? I'm off to the thrift store to find a used one!

  9. To cool, we have one complete with original box that we *never* use. At least not for teeth, until now!

  11. Hmmm... I love this idea but wonder if anyone can come up with a substitute for those of us who don't own a machine like that. Surely there is something. Thanks for sharing!
