The Crazy Suburban Mom: Who's got the dirtiest windows?

Monday, June 1, 2009

Who's got the dirtiest windows?

Okay well first the answer is, I do. But second here is my lazy gal disclaimer...

**This is not a standard go here, go there, tweet, sign up, tweet again, giveaway - promise.
You won't have to move... It's a lazy gals giveaway. My kind of giveaway**

I've been a member of the BzzAgent site for few years. I really like it. I've gotten some great products to try and coupons to pass on. This isn't a mommy blogger thing... it's a consumer thing and you can go to their site and sign up too! Right here, in fact.

This is the first time I've posted one of these on my blog, most of the time I just pass the coupons on to people I know but I figured, what the heck? I'm a little home bound about now with the nursing duty I'm doing on my honey's knee replacement so giving away coupons in a more virtual way suits me better at the moment.

The product they sent me:

Windex™ Outdoor All-in-One, Streak-Free Shine in Half the Time!*

New Windex™Outdoor All-in-One
glass cleaning tool provides a faster, easier way to clean outdoor windows.

Say goodbye to hand-drying with Windex's® Special Sheeting Action Formula that prevents streaks and spotting

• Clean 20 windows† with a single pad! (refills available)

Reach up to 11 ft. so you can safely and easily tackle tough outdoor grime without the hassle of using a ladder.

Cleans outdoor windows in just 3 easy steps:

SPRAY window and cleaning pad with garden hose.
WIPE window with cleaning pad.
RINSE window with garden hose. No need to hand dry.

I need light, frankly. If I don't have bright sunlight streaming in? I get depressed. No really. As in up my meds now, Doctor! Depressed.

About 6 months ago we got all new blinds downstairs. The old ones were about 15 years old and the standard 80's verticals. I really would have kept them forever despite being as out of date as Linda Evens shoulder pads but the things were falling apart.


More like actually falling, falling. On the floor. Several of the windows had slats that would fall off if you tried to let some sun in and several windows wouldn't open at all. Closed vertical blinds make for dark, depressing rooms.

We replaced all the blinds with horizontal translucent creamy light yellow blinds and I love them to pieces. In fact I am currently going steady with one of the large living room windows. I call that window Rex. (Please, don't tell the other windows, Marcia, Jan, Cindi, Peter, Bobbi, Greg and Alphonso... You know how jealous windows can be).

That's when it became apparent how dirty the windows were. Since I hadn't cleaned them in... okay, never mind about that... there was a haze on all the windows which I just ignored because... Well, y'all know why. It's a hassle to clean windows.

So when BzzAgent sent me the email about this product? I jumped on it like a woman who had been on a low carb diet for a year jumping on a family-size bowl of pasta.

With my current nursing duties I haven't had a chance to use it but I wanted to Bzz about it and pass out the coupons before it was too late. I'm hoping to get to it this week and if you want to do your windows too?

I have FIVE $3 off coupons for the first 5 people who leave me a comment with their email.

That's it. That's all you have to do.

Leave me a comment with your email.

For anyone who is too late? Don't worry I have a giveaway all planned for later so come back. And I think everyone who liked the vintage pyrex one... if you like vintage things? Will like this one a lot! Anyone like depression glass? Refrigerator dishes? Hmmm?

I am new to this site and I would love a coupon for this product. I barely clean my windows (esspicailly on the outside)because I have so much to do with 3 kids (ages 1 girl, 2 boy & 8 boy)and the 8 year old problems. I am also a member of bzzagent, but they never sent me anything and i don't know what to do there. Thanks, jennifer

Oh and my email is, Jennifer Barraud

tracy 6/1/09, 10:03 AM  

Okay Jennifer! You got the second one!

Vonlipi 6/1/09, 10:48 AM  

Tracy if you want to send me a coupon I'll take it and use it to buy the window cleaning system when I'm on vacation in Maine this summer.

I love all glass (depression included) it's genetic (you should see my father's house!) but I concentrate on the pyrex. So if I'm eligible and I win of course I want it (It would definitely be the highlight of that week-make it of the MONTH!!!) LOL

tracy 6/1/09, 10:54 AM  

Vonlipi - you got a coupon than! Just send your address to me (dot) parler (at) gmail (dot) com

Still got 2 left if anyone is interested!

Shelly 6/1/09, 12:11 PM  

Ok, well I think I would win the dirtiest windows contest. We haven't washed the outside of 'em since we moved in. And who knows when they were washed before that. We moved in about 2 years ago. lol. I try to wash the inside windows, but really, I am nowhere next to being a clean neat freak. Too many other things to do than dusting or cleaning windows.

Anyhoo, my email is donnyandshelly (at) (yahoo) (dot) (com)

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) 6/1/09, 12:59 PM  

I saw this advertised the other day on television. Looks sooo easy. I might be too late, but would love a coupon if you've still got any!

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) 6/1/09, 1:00 PM  

Oh, my e-mail is

chicamom85 6/1/09, 1:39 PM  

I am too late for the coupon but does the product come with a hot guy to do the windows for me? No oh well, it does sound good though. Nice post.


tracy 6/1/09, 2:31 PM

Chica - I think your too late but if I have another one your it!
