You want to open the window of your living room and realize it doesn’t move an inch. What can you do?
“Unsticking a window requires just a little muscle and the right technique,” according to Dummies authors Gary Hedstrom, Peg Hedstrom and Judy Ondrla Tremore. With a little patience and a couple of simple techniques, most jammed windows can be opened.
To help you get some fresh air in, Dummies provides 3 methods that work in most cases:
- Breaking the seal all around the window sashes;
- Using a hammer and a stiff-bladed putty knife;
- Cutting the seal with a utility knife.
