How can I get rid of residue from window screens on outside windows?


My windows are 25+ years old and throughout the years there is a residue build up from the window screens that are on the outside of the window. Any idea of an easy way to remove? It causes a "fog" appearance when looking through.

    Take out, lay on driveway use a soft scrub brush and wash with hot soap and water, flip over, repeat, hose off, let dry, reinstall.

    It was too cold out one day, so I just put my screens from the family room in the hot shower, moving it around to get it all real good. Turned it around & did the same. Air dried & they came out great.
