Taking out old windows to clean

]Hello everyone, im wondering how to take out these old windows to clean and put new caulk in them. We cant afford new windows right now, but we were told to clean them up and re-caulk them.

IMO the easiest thing for you to do would be to remove the storm window on the outside in order to wash, reglaze and paint. You usually want to use glazing putty around the exterior side of the glass, not caulk.

There are several areas where caulking may help but as X stated, the sash should have glazing not caulk. The correct way to glaze a window is; scrape off all the loose glazing, prime the raw wood, glaze as needed, prime and then paint. Priming the raw wood prior to glazing keeps the wood from sucking the oil out of the glazing allowing it to stay put longer.

btw - welcome to the forums!
