Cleaning screens

Now that summer is on it’s way there’s some folk out there that have balconies with patio doors and screens. The screens get dusty, some have that salt mist from the winter weather. Not to fret, we’ve got that covered.

What you’ll need:

Wash bucket
2 good quality micro fibre cloths (16 x 16) are the best
2 good quality cotton cloths, preferably the thick cotton from old shirts
warm water
Sunlight or Dawn dishsoap

Fill the wash bucket 3/4 full with warm water. Add about 3 tablespoons of dish soap.
Throw in the micro fibre cloths and gently swish around.

Wring out one of the micro fibre cloths leaving it pretty wet, not too wet.
Start by wiping the top corner of the screen on one side and move the micro fibre slowly across the screen to the other side.

Continue to move across the screen wiping as you go. You’ll see a good build up of white suds from the dish soap.
This is a good sign. As you move down and across the screen you’ll notice that the cloth is becoming dry. Rinse and ring it out again, repeat the steps above until the entire length of the screen is white with suds.
Take one of the cotton cloths and wipe the screen in the same pattern as above. You’ll notice that the suds disappear, leaving a clean screen. Do this method on both sides of the screen. You’ll be amazed at how clean the screen becomes with little effort. You can continue to do your windows and mirrors in the same manner. Normal dishsoap and good quality cloths make all the difference in the world. Wipe the surfaces dry with the cotton cloths until you hear the window squeak. Enjoy your clean screens and windows.
