Q. One of most dreaded spring cleaning chores is cleaning my window screen. How do you recommend cleaning them?
A. When cleaning screens take care not overstress the fabric. To begin mix equal part vinegar and water in a spray bottle. If the screens are quite dirty you can add mild dish soap to the vinegar cleaner. Fill another bottle with clear water. Remove the screen from the window and wipe both sides with a microfibre cloth or you can gently vacuum. Lay the screen flat on and old towel and spray with your vinegar cleaner and clean using a soft brush or sponge. After you have cleaned both sides rinse with the clear water and blot dry with a clean towel. Throughout the year you can keep your screens clean using a lint brush.
