Use just a squirt of dish washing liquid in a bucket of warm water — the less suds, the better.
Starting at the top left, pull a squeegee over the soapy pane in a reverse-S pattern (left- handers
would start at the top right). At the end of each stroke, wipe the squeegee's blade clean with a lint-
free rag. Cloth diapers or old linen napkins are perfect for this.
Remove any water remaining on the edges of the glass with a damp, wrung-dry chamois, which
soaks up wetness without leaving streaks. Dry the windowsill with a rag.
Cleaning your windows and Screens is one of those jobs that nobody
likes to do, but with the right tools and techniques, the task can go
much more quickly and produce better results.
If possible, it's best to wash your screens outside.
Fill a large bucket with hot soap or detergent suds. Attach a hose to a faucet, and turn the nozzle to
give a fine spray of water. Lean the screen against a wall, railing, porch, or other handy support.
Scrub both sides of the screen mesh with a stiff brush dipped into hot suds. Wash the frame all
around with a sponge dipped into sudsy water. This will wash off dirt and "drip" from the metal
screening. "Tension screens" (the soft ones which have no frames and are springy enough to roll
up) can be opened flat and washed the same way. Use a brush and suds. Rinse all sides of the
screen with a good hosing of clean water. Let the screen drip a little, then wipe it with a dry cloth,
and stand it up to dry in a breeze.
All that's left is to sit back and enjoy the view.
