Window Screen Labels

Martha Stewart Living, April 2008

Prevent confusion the next time you make the seasonal switch from storm windows to screens. Use a label maker to identify which room and specific frame a screen or storm window fits, or write the information on a strip of painters' tape with a permanent marker. Stick the labels to a top corner of each screen or window.

    This is a great idea! I run a window cleaning company and have been looking for ideas how to keep track of screens. We know some people use sharpies etc - but when we clean the screens, ink has a tendency to come off. For now we have just been stacking them in the order that we take them off when prepping to clean the windows. We will be trialing this method. - JRWC Window Cleaning Keller

    I use a permanent marker and put it on the top edge of the screen or storm so that it is out of sight.

    This is a great idea. Now, in Florida we don't do the annual switch between storm to screen. However, I'm going to do this to our screens so there's no confusion the next time the power washer company comes.
