Step 1

First, open the window all the way to gain access to the window tracks, then make sure that the window track is completely dry, and then start to loosen up the dirt and debris by scrubbing them with a toothbrush. Make sure to scrub all of the corners and crevices, then if you have a small gap that you can’t reach, pop off the screen first, and start to vacuum all of the loose dirt using a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment.
