Updated December 12, 2020
As much as we want to clean what’s in front of us it’s also very important to clean where you can’t see. It’s not a situation where it’s out of sight out of mind. If you want your home clean then you have to do it right. You can’t just sweep dirt under the rug.
To make it easier to clean hard to reach places then you need to have the right tools. Tools that will help you reach hard to reach corners and places. Detail cleaning doesn’t need to be expensive as you may already have the right tools in your shed. You might not even need to call in professional cleaners if you’re feeling up to it.

I suggest that you get The Crown Choice scrubber cloths because they are are durable and easy to clean. Our scrubber cloths are easy to maintain, just wipe, run the cloth under running water, and air dry for the next use.
Window or Shower Door Tracks
There are removable windows or shower door tracks that are easier to clean since you can remove what’s in the way. If you can’t remove your window or door this will still apply.
Use a vacuum with a crevice tool to loosen as much grime as you can. Use a flexible and sturdy brush to scrub the tracks with soap and water.
Use another set of detail brush to carefully remove more dirt buildup. You might need to splash some vinegar to help loosen stubborn grime.
