When window mesh screens are really hard to remove, and they are not really dirty, it might be worth considering this lint roller cleaning technique I saw online recently. When I saw this awesome way to clean screens with a lint roller video tutorial by Awldeas, on YouTube, I had to try it. My outdoor screens were not really that dirty and they are so hard to take off and on, so I figured my screens were the perfect candidate for this awesome quick fix. If the lint roller doesn’t do the job you can go over it with a magic eraser.
Materials For Cleaning Screens With A Lint Roller:
Cleaning In Different Levels:
- A lint roller (for the lighter job of cleaning a screen)
- A magic eraser (this will be the next step if the screens still look a bit dirty, get an extra-strong one)
- A vacuum (may be useful depending on how dirty the screens have gotten)
- A soapy water-vinegar bath (if the screens have caked-on grime)
- Pressure Washing (for the worst dirt)
- Vinegar wash (for rusty screens)
In this awesome way to clean screens with a lint roller video tutorial by Awldeas, on YouTube, you will learn how to clean your outdoor screens at all levels of dirtiness, starting with the easy lint roller.
If your lint roller doesn’t pick up all of the dirt and dust, you may want to try a magic eraser. The heavy-duty kind is best for this job because they won’t shred from raking them over the metal mesh. Just wet the magic eraser and scrub lightly enough that the screen doesn’t get stretch out and starts to bow.
These are all great tips and will make outdoor screen cleaning a breeze.
