Default What is the best way to clean a garage screen?

We have an electric garage screen door, and need some suggestions on how to clean it. Can you use clorox? TIA

Do not use clorox under any circumstances. It will damage the integrity of the screen. Use soap and water or the outdoor Windex for windows that you put on your garden hose. You just need to scrub gently with a soft brush or even a broom or a mop. Clorox will, over time, break down the material and damage the screen.

i power wash mine. Put the screen down with the door down as well the power wash from the outside. Then put the door up and power wash the screen from the inside....comes out looking like new.

Don't forget to lube the tracks when you are done.
