How can I remove latex paint from my window screens?

Latex Paint Removal from Screens

Be sure to tape newspaper over window screens before painting their frames. Otherwise you may be left with a messy window cleaning situation. If you do get latex paint on the windw, it's easy enough to remove. Just dip a rag in a paint thinner or remover formulated to thin latex paint. Rubbing Alcohol or nail polish remover might also work. Your window cleaning supplies for this task shouldn't include cotton balls or paper towels however, these can get caught in the holes in the screen, making matters worse.
