I admit I have been a little lax with the cleaning. the roosts are...not nice. The roosts are 1x6's on their side so the 6" side is what they sit on. The front inch isn't bad, the top isn't bad but the back 1" near the wall is very very bad. Any great ideas to get it off? I would like to repaint the roosts, They are painted now but would like it fresh and clean for fall cleaning. How long after painting can they go back in? the weather has turned crappy, not that I shouldn't have expected it but I need two more weekends!
