    Does anyone have any simple methods for cleaning between the sliding side front windows? I have some green algae type of stuff where the windows overlap and I would like to get rid of it without having to resort to dismantling the window assembly. The seals prevent the insertion of anything too bulky.

    Hello, I used a paintbrush dipped in bleach when I had a mini many moons ago then used a paper towel on a steel rule to clean off :RollEyes:

    The problem is getting the bleach to it. The windows are very close together.

    We haven't had algae problems with the one sliding window in our van but did at the bottom of the cab windows. We use Onedrywash to clean the van so I just sprayed some on and used an old toothbrush to work it in.
