Window track cleaning?

The outside track below windows is a pain to clean. Anyone have a secret they would like to share on what to use?

Gutter?

Maybe it is more like a gutter but so hard to clean!

No secrets shared..guess drag a rag under the screws and window locks which I will be doing in a few days once again. There has to be an easier way.

Totally. I知 inventing all kinds of tools in my mind. Some kind of tiny pressure washer/sprayer? I知 also wondering how to smooth the corrosion in all those hard to reach places. A tiny sandblaster?

Vacuum and some kind of shop-hack adapter? In any case, once I get them cleaned, I値l hand sand 粗m, I think, and then brush some POR 15 type stuff on top. Maybe silver, maybe black? Pending more research and head scratching, of course.
