Since spring is in the air, what's the best stuff to use to clean the storm window screens. I'll have to take them out of the window and I want to give them a good cleaning. Is there a good cleaner to use?

Thanks in advance...

I would suggest using a common household cleaner and a soft scrub brush. Being slightly "green," I prefer biodegradable cleaners. Nothing wrong with 409 or Fantastik, tho. Just be careful if you are going to hose it off outdoors, you are aware of surrounding plantings.

I'd also lay an old towel under the frame to avoid any scratches; it will also provide a little extra support for the screen, too--don't scrub too hard.

In case you missed it, Bob was on The Early Show with a few other spring cleaning tips this morning. We have an article going through our edit process on the segment. It should be posted under "Bob On TV" in The Early Show section tomorrow.
