Time: 30 Minutes Cost: $182 Difficulty: Easy
Step 1: Remove screens from windows. Lay flat on the ground on top of a soft surface (towel or blanket).
Step 2: Attach soft-bristol brush to your vacuum nozzle.
Step 3: Vacuum your entire screen. I worked left to right and my strokes were from top to bottom, ensuring not to miss a section.
Step 4: Fill your tub with a few inches of water. Add a couple of drops of dish soap to create a soapy wash.
Step 5: Slather the screen in the soapy mixture and rub it all over the screen with your hand.
I used a circular motion to give it a good wash. My screen did not fit into the tub, so I stood it up and poured the mixture all over it while I did this.
Step 6: Drain your water and rinse your screen.
Use clean running water and rinse off all of the soap suds.
Step 7: Dry your screen thoroughly with a soft towel.
You'll most likely pick-up all of the dust, dirt and grime at this stage. YUCK!
Step 8: Replace your window screen.
Enjoy a much cleaner view and say hello to fresh spring air! While the screen is off, why not give your windows a good clean too?
