Cleaning a window AC

Been meaning to do this for years....just never got to it. Unit is at least 12 years old, probably near its time.

Four screws, pull....
heavy. Put it on my two wheel dolly, take it outside,

Attach a car wash bottle/gun to my hose, use dawn soap, and start spraying.

Leaves, dirt, something that looks like black goop.

Rinse and repeat.

Its 100 F at 6pm, so I spray some water on me.

Both AC and I are dry in about 30 minutes


Thermometer shows air coming out at 57 F. Room is cool enough.

I think I need to do this every Spring (early March).

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981
