try taking the black seal off. It is clipped in but may be tough to get out. then just rinse really good in there (i dk if you have power windows and locks so be careful)

take the door panel off and try your best to cover the motor and electronics with alumunim foil. Then take the black window seal off and rinse with water

and be careful you don't scratch your tint with the grits of the sand or anything. that would be bad. i know that would anger me.
