On subsequent screens, I'll leave the paper backing on the "loop" piece. The adhesive against the screen couldn't find enough of a foothold to make it worth the sticky fingers sewing it down! Still have to GooGone de-con my needles on one of these days...
Yes, plural! Lost the thread outta one, it was so sticky around the eye, I couldn't get the thread thru. Eye aye I!
Being long-haired & shed like a Labrador, I put the "hook" panel against the window frame on the theory it would be less likely to collect, compact, and hoard shed follicles than if it were on the removable screen...

Great idea to leave the paper backing. Hmmm, I have some that has hook on one side and loop on the other. That would eliminate the glue all together, except for the need on the metal surface.


My thoughts were to use the hook side on the non-moving wall/ceiling with the same goals in mind. The screens would catch a lot of stuff since they *could* and this *would* move about the cabin so the loop side seems best there. Besides, they might be tossed into the washing machine from time to time as well. No sense tangling them up with other items like the proverbial lost sock or two.

you realise that every lost sock turns into an unmatched tupper ware lid in the cupboard?

Which is why, during pre-wash prep, I ensure all the Velcro closures on my cargo-shorts & -pants are firmly married together!
Mind you, not that I'm any expert on firm marriages...

So tell me why, as a confirmed, year 'round barefooter:
I have piles of unaccountable, "press n burp" plastics!

I can't answer that - my feet get too hot even in the winter - I haven't worn socks for several years - just wear a cheap pair of Walmart winter boots and spend hours out in the snow with my sleddogs - kick the boots off as soon as I'm back in the house because my feet feel like they are burning - I thought the excess of tupperware lids lay at the feet of the others than live with me, but maybe not?? - lol
