Forum Title: vinyl window will not stay open I used WD 40 wrong!
Hello and good day all. I tried to get my vinyl windows (about 20 years old) to open easier. Rather than spraying WD 40 on a cloth and wiping the sides of the window, I sprayed it directly into the sides where the springs are. Now the window droops and does not stay all the way open. I do not know the manufacturer. I do not seen any visible adjustments. The windows do tilt in and come out. Any way of reversing the WD 40 issue? Thanks to all who help!

My choice would be an oil based marine polyurethane(has UV blockers that regular poly's do not). Several coats with the first being thinned lightly. Sand lightly between coats. The finish will darken the wood quite a bit, so staining may not be needed, but that is a personal choice. If this gets direct weather, you will need to add a touch up coat every few years.
