How to clean your window sills, tracks and fly screens

22 Nov 16

Every house has windows and every window needs cleaning.

It can be a time consuming task that no one likes to do but it is a task that is worth doing every 6 months.

Follow these easy steps to help you clean your window sills, tracks and fly screens.

What you need:

  • Garden hose
  • Bucket
  • Water
  • Mild detergent
  • Old toothbrush or small scrubbing brush
  • Vacuum
  • Soft scrubbing brush
  • Paper towel or sponge

What to do:

  • 1. Remove fly screen from the window and lay outside flat or against a wall.

  • 2. Rinse the fly screen using a garden hose on a medium pressure setting.

  • 3. Scrub the fly screen on both sides with a soft bristle brush.

  • 4. Rinse fly screen with water.

  • 5. While the fly screens are drying, vacuum the window tracks and sills to pick up all the loose dust and dirt.

  • 6. Use an old tooth brush or small scrubbing brush to help loosen hard dirt. 

  • 7. Vacuum the window sill again.

  • 8. Spray all-purpose cleaning product in the window track and window sill. Wipe clean. 

  • 9. Once the fly screen is dry you can place it back on.

Windows should be cleaned about twice a year to stop any build up that is hard to remove later on.
