Have a hole in one of your window screens? Keep the bugs out with a simple patch job. Here’s how:
What You’ll Need:
- A Self-Stick Screen Repair Kit or a roll of Window screen repair tape
- A small brush (an old toothbrush is perfect)
- A damp cloth or sponge
What You Do:
Step 1: Gently brush the screen surface surrounding the tear to remove any debris.
Step 2: Then, wipe the area with a damp cloth or sponge, and allow it to dry.
Step 3: Cut your patch down to the size you need; peel the backing off; and place it over the tear. Apply gentle pressure in a circular motion to set the patch.
Step 4: Re-install your window screen, and you’re all finished!
- Window screens come in gray and charcoal. Be sure to get the patch kit that matches your screens
- Screen repair tape is a better buy, if you have several screens to patch
