We have been on the road now for most of the sumer and one thing that is starting to get a little dirty is my RV window screens. Mostly there are seeds, those fuzzy kinds, that seemed to be everywhere in certain parts of the country, but also some small bugs.
Taking out the screens to clean them is too much when I’m traveling and having fun, but still I do not like to look out the dirty screens.
So, that is why I was so excited to read a tip listener Connie emailed to me this week. Connie’s solution for dirty screens? A lint roller – one of those round giant tape rolls on a stick that can be rolled over clothes to get lint off.
Connie’s email was short and sweet. She wrote: “Dear Mike and Jennifer, thank you so much for all you do. We enjoy your webpage and podcast very much. I have a tip for Jennifer. If your screens get dirty when you are out on a trip, try using a lint roller. They also come in handy getting dog hair off the cushions. Hope that helps someone. Connie from KY”
Well thank you, Connie, for taking the time to send me an email to share this tip with other RVers. That is what this section of the podcast is all about – sharing little things we pick up to make the RV lifestyle all that much more enjoyable.
I usually have a lint roller already with me to help control Bo’s hair, but i had never thought of using one on the screens. I tried it, after reading Connie’s tip, and it worked great! Thank you again.
Lint rollers can be purchased just about anywhere for as little as about $2-3. Here’s a link to a roller and a bunch of refills on Amazon – https://amzn.to/2KiDim7
