The unpleasant becomes pleasant

All those creases, corners and grooves can be really challenging to clean up. If you too are one of those people who like to skip the window frames and just focus on the glass part, after a while the dust layer will get really thick and the cleaning will become more challenging. Since it is really difficult to clean such frames with just a wet cloth dipped in spring water, we have a trick to make cleaning easier.

What you will need

  • Microfiber cloth
  • Scouring powder
  • vinegar
  • Fire retardant
  • Old toothbrush
  • Paper napkins
  • A spray bottle
  • Water

First, take a vacuum cleaner and vacuum the window frames. Now sprinkle the bottom of the frame with loose powder – this is where the dust sticks the most. In a spray bottle, mix water and vinegar in a 1:1 ratio and add a few drops of vinegar. Mix all the ingredients and shake thoroughly. Now you can spray the prepared mixture on the loosening powder and also where it is dirt less. Leave this mixture for at least five minutes. After the time has elapsed, use a toothbrush to scrub the frame. If you are sure that the dried dirt is gone, wipe the frame with paper towels. Then take a damp cloth and wipe everything thoroughly.

Now you can enjoy perfectly clean windows that are a joy to let fresh air into your home. Washing your windows just before winter is very important. In some cases, layers of dirt can have an adverse effect on the window seals, which is not exactly the most pleasant thing to do in winter.
