Mrs. Meyers Clean Home Giveaway! Week 3

**Giveaway closed**

If you've been following all month long, you already know that each week during March I'm giving away a copy of Mrs. Meyer's Clean Home: No-Nonsense Advice that Will Inspire You to CLEAN like the DICKENS from the Hachette Book Group. And each week, I am sharing a simple tip that I learned from Mrs. Meyers and how I implemented it in our house.

This week, I can feel the Spring coming on, and with Spring comes open windows. The windows that have been closed all Winter long are looking....um, pretty grimy. Yuck. So I decided to take Mrs. Meyer's advice for cleaning windows. Do you want to know her secret?

Just mix one quart of water, one tablespoon of dishwashing liquid, two teaspoons of white vinegar, and a generous splash of rubbing alcohol. (She said that exact measurements are not neccessary.) Then apply the mixture to crumpled up newspaper (the number one tip I've received this month, by the way!)

I loved it! And my windows looked amazing after a little clean-up. It's incredible how much better the house feels!

Have you been trying all month to win a copy? Are you a newbie here? You still have plenty of chances! Not only will I give another book away this week, but next week I'll have two books to give away. I'll take ALL of the entries form the month for a chance at the last book (so if you have been commenting all along, you'll have even more entries.

Here's the deal, same as always. Leave one comment for an entry. This time around, tell me your biggest problem spot in your house. Why do you really need this helpful cleaning resource?

For extra entries, you can stumble, fave on technorati, kirtsy, tweet, blog, grab a button, follow me, add me to your blog roll....all the typical extra entries. I'm easy to please! Just be sure you add a comment for each entry.

This giveaway will end next Monday night, March 23rd, at 10:00pm. I will then announce the winner of this week's book and list the last giveaway. Open to residents of the US and Canada only. No PO boxes, please.

Remember to leave me some way to get ahold of you if you are the winner! If the winner does not respond back to me within 48 hours of being contacted, I will have to pick a new winner.

Good luck!

PS--Last week's winner was Nikkicrumpet from Blah, Blah, Blah, Blog! Congrats!

  14. My biggest cleaning problem in my house is the old woodwork that seems to attract dust & dirt like a magnet. I would love to replace it all, but it's too expensive, so I have to clean it often. I'd love to find some way to keep it from getting dirty so quickly.
