52. Clean Window Screens

Whether the mesh is bronze, fiberglass, or nylon, the same screen-cleaning technique is used by Bob Merkt, of Kettle Moraine Professional Cleaners: First, vacuum both sides with a brush attachment; then clean with a sponge and a standard household cleaner, such as Formula 409, Fantastic, or Spic and Span. Don't apply too much pressure, as this can detach the screen from the frame. If possible, do the cleaning in a bathtub full of hot water, using a bath mat to protect your tub's finish. Rinse off the screens under the shower.
