Cleaning a Sliding Door Track

To clean and lubricate the track for sliding doors or windows. First vacuum well, and spray with WD40. Remove grime with brush or cloth. Vacuum again if necessary.

I tried using WD40 to clean my sliding door tracks. Even wiped it up as good as I could afterwards. Sure it got them clean, but I started noticing little black paw prints all over my kitchen floor after that. Finally realized it was because the animals were stepping on the tracks and tracking dirty WD40 into the house! It took me forever to clean up the WD40! So now I clean them good with wipes, then dab the tracks with a little oil on a q-tip.

do not put wd-40 in tracks.It does nothing but make sludge.Just keep the tracks clean.If your door slides badly check that is on the track,make sure tracks are level and paralel,and that the wheels are in good shape.I'm a winow cleaner I see a lot more than installers who put in new windows and never see them again
