  1. Hi Danny,
    I took your suggestion and went & bought a squeegie that had rubber on the end & that rubber was cover with a nylon netting, not a cloth like you suggested. I couldn’t find that one. So far it still is not cleaning the screens without leaving streaks. I’m wondering if I should take off the nylong netting & just use the rubber sponge by itself.
