How To Easily Clean Your Front Door Back To New Again

Sharing is Caring! ❤️

Whenever I discovered a new cleaning tip, I have to share it with you! Does your front and screen door get all grimy with pollen, dust, and debris? Now more than ever, it’s important to keep our home clean. And according to WCMA Window & Door, our outside doors can easily build up with nasty dirt and pollen. Keeping the outside of your homes is equally as important as the inside.

More so, that’s why I discovered an easy way to clean your front door and your screen door back to new again! Plus, the outside dirt and pollen doesn’t get into my home as easily!

I usually go through the drill of pulling out all the cleaning products to get my outside doors clean. It’s a real chore! I would grab the Fantastic cleaner to clean the dirt and debris and then scrub and scrub and scrub the kick marks off with Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Then, I would grab the Windex to add some sparkle and shine. That’s a total of three products and at least 40 minutes of my time to do it. 

This Spring seems to loaded with crazy pollen! I cleaned my door last week and look at it now! You can literally see the pollen loading up on the door. And those shoe marks – nasty.

And look at my screen door too – same dirty nightmare – yuck! Talk about first impressions! I don’t want folks to see dirt before they enter my home. After all, I am a clean freak, to begin with!

Well, guess what? You can bring your front door and screen door back to new again easily with WD40. Yep, it’s that easy. All I did was spray a rag with it, and wipe it clean. No buffing, no scrubbing – it was as easy as can be!

  1. What? WD40 to clean your front door! I am so thrilled to read your how to clean the front door idea Carolann. I can’t wait to try this trick now too.

  2. Hi Debbie, I would test a small patch on the back or bottom first. I’m sure you can as WD40 can be used on so many surfaces. Thank you for stopping by. Let me know how it works out!

  3. That’s a good tip that I will try when I need to. But I don’t have a wood door to clean — just a wide expanse of sliding glass doors from my apartment to my terrace (which is huge). My problem is how to clean the bottom of the glass doors (not the door but the gutter under it). It looks gross and the only thing that will work would be to take a toothbrush and a cleaning agent and scrub off the pollen and dark soot or accumulated gunk with it. There must be a better way. Even if I hire someone to power wash it, I would still need to do the toothbrush method to remove leftover gunk. Besides I cannot do a power wash in my apartment.

  4. Yes, I hear you on that one, Hazel. I have backsliders too and they are aluminum trim with glass doors. I took a rag and sprayed it with WD40 and it worked great at getting out all the dirt and debris. Test a spot and see how it goes. I love it and it’s now my go-to solution. Let me know how it works out for you! Thanks much for stopping by and hope to see you again soon!

  5. Thanks for replying so quickly. I’ll try your method and will let you know the results.

  6. Well, blow me down with a feather! I never thought to try WD40!! What a great idea! Our front door is in desperate need of a good clean! Definitely going to try this! Thank you for sharing your cleverness with us!

  7. You can use WD40 to clean glass too? I got an antique treadle sewing machine years ago and searched the Internet for how to clean it and used WD40 back then to clean all the iron scrollwork. So – I should have thought of this, but didn’t. ????

  8. I am definately going to try this on my front door. But guess what? I used to use WD40 to rid myself of wasps while on my carport roof (which I couldn’t jump off of easily) during a paint job around my windows. Kills them flat ! So wouldn’t it repel these creatures from entering your home as well I wonder (if you leave the door open in the summertime)? Hmmm. Food for thought

  9. Any idea if this would affect a future paint job by leaving a residue? I would like to try this.

  10. Hi Shirley, I applied it while ago and I have seen no sight of any residue. It’s always a good idea to clean any area before applying paint just to be sure. I love the way mine turned out! Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon!

  11. Hi Judy, wow, that’s awesome to hear. I’m going to try it today. It’s amazing that you use WD40 for so many things isn’t it? Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m thrilled with the way my door still looks!

  12. Is the door wood out metal? Mine is metal and wondering if the WD40 might make it rust.

  13. Hi Jan,
    My doors are both metal and wood and I used it on both. I have had any issues at all and my door is actually staying cleaner now better than before! Hope that helps.
