Tips: how to clean your LCD screen

By | January 8, 2009
  1. Dust the screen regularly.Use a very, very soft, dry cloth to wipe the dust away.
  2. Don’t touch the screen.LCD screens get dirty is from body oil on fingers.
  3. Separate laptop keys from screen when closed.Place a thin, soft cloth between the keyboard and screen, keeping the screen from accumulating key marks.
  4. Never use any cleaners that contain ammonia.You can either mix your own or purchased a premixed cleaning solution (usually mixed to 30% concentration) from a computer store. To apply the solution, use a very, very soft cloth, such as a piece of soft flannel or a synthetic microfiber material, and wipe the screen gently: too much pressure can cause the screen to crack or warp. You can use this cleaning method as often as necessary.
  5. Clean gently.Also avoid paper towels, since they can easily scratch an LCD as they drag dirt and paper particles over the surface of the screen; that’s why it’s so important to use the softest cloth you can.
