GATHER THESE BASIC SUPPLIES:
rag or cloth
FOLLOW THESE STEPS:
1. Start with the baking soda
Sprinkle a little baking soda wherever the gunkiest places are, most likely in the corners. I find it easiest to use a spoon for this.
2. Add white vinegar
Pour a little of the white vinegar over the baking soda. It doesn’t take much. Once you’ve poured the vinegar over the baking soda, just leave it. This is how the magic happens!
3. Let is soak
Just leave it there and forget about it for 10 minutes or so. But don’t leave it for too long or it will start to dry slightly.
4. Grab your toothbrush
Well, not your toothbrush (ew!) but the one you grabbed for this project. Start working all that gunk toward the center of the window track.
5. Remove all that gunk
All that nastiness that you just moved toward the center is now ready to be removed. Just put it in a paper towel over it and throw it away.
6. Wipe up what’s left
Wet your rag and use it to just wipe out what little is left in the track, it shouldn’t be much.
7. Grab your butter knife
If needed, use the knife covered with your rag to finish up in the corners. Again, it should be minimal but it could be there.
Voila! You’re done! Now wasn’t that easy?? Small simple maintenance throughout the year saves you time in the long run.
