1. Sticking Vinyl Window
Vinyl windows can keep the cold out, are long-lasting, and don’t break the bank. One issue with vinyl windows is that dirt and grime can accumulate in the window tracks over time, making it harder to open and close the windows.
Use a dry silicone spray, such 3M Silicone Spray, to get rid of the grime and lubricate the window tracks. Use a pointed spray bottle to clean the space between the window and the jamb, next open the window and wipe the inside of the track.
