Window cleaning can be hectic sometimes, so here I share a quick way to conquer the really dirty windows you may have to deal with. In my case, they were like this when my wife and I moved into our new home. Looks like the previous owners never paid any attention to this at all. So I took the challenge with a smile.

For this tutorial, I will be speaking to you as to what I did, instead of what you can do and then you can do the same if you are faced with a similar challenge.
The things I used:
Sponge with a Scouring pad
I start by brushing out all the dirt from the corners and grooves.
I used some paper towel to help me to lift away all the grime gathered by the toothbrush. You do not want to know some of the things I found.
After all the loosed dust was out I sprinkled baking soda all over the grooves and channels.
Then I sprayed the baking soda with the white vinegar and let it fizz to clean and disinfect the area for about ten minutes.
I sliced the sponge on the on the scouring pad to fit into the groves for a better cleaning.
It worked perfectly in removing the baking soda and cleaning out the grooves nicely.
It was looking quite impressive after all the effort. At least I can say that baking soda and vinegar really work to remove dirt and other stains.
Between gathering ingredients and getting down to business on that area it took me 20 minutes. After I was finished it looked really good except for a rust stain that seems impossible to remove. I tried coca cola, salt, vinegar, and dish soap. None of these worked so I will be testing some other methods on it.
I wish you never have windows this dirty but if you do, you will be able to handle it with ease.
