How do I wash the screens from my windows?

Window Screen Cleaning

Screens are not the most attractive part of window cleaning. They're dusty, they have dirt and debris stuck in their little holes. They can honestly present a window cleaning challenge. They can also be a lot of fun to clean if you use the right window cleaning equipment. Try taking them outside and cleaning them with a garden hose. Saved for a hot day, cleaning the windows can cool you off as well! Hose down both sides and leave in the sun to air dry. Here's an additional window cleaning tip: The hose attachment on a vacuum cleaner will get dirt out of all of the little holes and crevices.

i have also found that a pet fur brush remover works really good on screens , just brush the screen with the plastic fur brush on both sides and the screen looks new

Hosing off screens does not really clean them. I have found the best cleaning tool for a screen is a sponge with the screen laying flat. Hose off a screen and then rub a sponge (hand held or mop) over it and you'll see what I mean!

I have found that using a old rag ready to be thrown out, I spray Scots liquid gold on the rag and clean both sides of screen and they look brand new and they are clean.
