Methods for cleaning window tracks?

Any trade secrets for cleaning window tracks? I dip a plastic bristled grout brush in my cleaning solution, work the pointed edge into the corners and run along the track, and wipe the track clean with a microfiber cloth. Seems to work well. Other methods?

I use an old tooth brush and dip it in a detergent soap and brush it in the track on the window. Simple but effective in normal dirt...

There are many window cleaning products in the market. These solutions can be made out of vinegar, alcohol, ammonia, borax etc. In order to achieve the best results while window cleaning, there is a very simple process that needs to be followed.
  • Wipe off all the excess dirt
  • Spray the windows with water and then the cleaning solution
  • Use a squeegee to wipe off the solution and dry the window. You can also use a soft cloth.

I use a small brush with long bristles to get out the chunks then have a small wet/dry vac to get anything else that's left. Works well for me.

Use your garden hose first to spray the outside of the sliding window track. ou might need a scrub brush to loosen some of the matter, especially in the corners.

First vacuum out any dry dirt and dust. Use a brush (like a stiff paint brush) to get into any cracks if you dont have a brush attachment for your vac. Then spray your all-purpose cleaner and wipe out with a clean cloth.

Cleaning Window Tracks

I do it the same way you do - spray bottle and microfibers. However sometimes you have a bunch of dead flies in it and you don't want to accidentally get some on the customers floor. Using a dry vacuum first to suck all the loose debris then spraying it and wiping is a pretty good method of cleaning the tracks. Some cleaners, however, just spray the whole track and then use a wet vac to suck everything out.
