To clean a window screen, you need to remove it from the window and vacuum the majority of the dirt off with a soft bristle brush to avoid scrubbing hard later on in the cleaning process. After you have vacuumed, then you will need to gently wipe down the screen with a sponge and an all purpose cleaner. Lastly, you will need to rinse off the all purpose cleaner and dirt with a low pressure water hose before you let the screen dry!
