When you’ve got some nasty window tracks, here’s the simple trick you need to know to make them shine!
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. Grab your 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. Walk away
The magic can only happen if you walk away. So just leave it there and forget about it for 5 minutes or so. Just 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 collected gunk
All that nastiness that you just moved toward the center is now ready to be removed. Just put it in a paper towel and throw it away. I saved you from looking at that part.
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.
8. One last wipe
Use your rag one last time to wipe out anything that might be left. The result should be nice and sparkly clean!
9. Admire your handiwork
Now is the time to sit back and admire your hard work. No one will know that you used an amazing trick to get them to sparkle like this.
