In this video, cleaning expert, Melissa Maker, shows us how to clean window sills and window tracks - that build up of grime is so unattractive, but easily handled with a quick cleaning. Cleaning window sills used to be a wrist-twisting job, but now we can clean them quickly and easily!

Sandi asked: What's the best way to clean my window sill tracks?


What you need-
1) Dirty window sill
2) Cleaning toothbrush
3) Spray bottle filled with water
4) Microfibre cloth
5) Vacuum (optional)
6) Drop of dish soap or 1 tablespoon baking soda (optional)

Optional: Start by vacuuming (using the nozzle attachment/crevice tool) to remove large debris- it takes a few seconds and makes all the difference.

Optional: Put a drop of dish soap or 1 tablespoon of baking soda to the spray bottle for extra cleaning power.

Spray the window sill with water and let it sit for a few minutes. Using a cleaning toothbrush, brush the window sill track to lift off any caked on debris. Once you've thoroughly brushed the area, take a microfibre cloth and wipe the remaining residue. If you wrap the cloth around your finger, you can get into corners and scratch off any excess dirt easily.


For mold on your window sill:
Take a few drops of tea tree oil and add it to your spray bottle. Spray the window sill area and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Use the cleaning toothbrush to breakdown the mold and wipe clean with a cloth. Re-treat the area using the tea tree solution to help inhibit mold growth. Please note: mold is the result of a moisture issue and should be dealt with as early as possible to prevent spreading.

FYI: If you live in colder climates and open your windows during only a few months, you can do this twice a year. If you live somewhere that allows windows to be open for most of the year, step up the frequency and do it quarterly.
