What to use for washing window sills

Part of your spring cleaning routine most likely includes washing your windows.  What about window sills?  It is so easy to forget about this part of a window but it should also be thoroughly cleaned. 

What is the best way to wash a window sill and what should be used to get the job done?  Here are a few tips that may help you with your window washing projects, specifically window sills:

Window Sills

  1. First you may want to get some sort of soft rag or bristled brush to free away any of the loose dust and dirt trapped on the window sill. 
  2. Next you will want to wash the window sill with warm water and soap.  After a thorough cleaning, rinse the window sill with clean warm water.  (For those hard to clean places like small corners, using a toothbrush is very effective with getting rid of that stubborn dirt and grime.)

*If your window contains a natural finish, consider using a wood cleaner and dusting with paper towel.

What about nasty mold from a window sill?  This can build very easily if not washed at least once a week.  Use some sort of mildew spray and let it stand for about 10 minutes or so.  Take a sponge or cloth to wipe the mold away. 

It is highly advised to call a professional to take care of a recurring mold problem.  Mold can cause health problems so it’s very important to get this taken care of.
