My computer monitor is kinda like a laptop screen and has all these little dirty spots that i want to get off. The problem is i don't want to ruin my screen, who does? If anyone has any idea how to clean a laptop screen, please let me know. Thanx
I use 25% alcohol and water, works just fine. Whatever cleaner you use, use it SPARINGLY, do NOT let any run behind the bezel! Use only a soft cloth, NEVER use paper products to clean LCD screens, they'll scratch the plastic front plate.
Agree with above comments but note that one of the features of klearscreen is that it sprays on an absolutely ultra-fine mist that doesn't form droplets so there is no running liquid. I have used it for several years now on TV, Laptop and LCD screens. I purchase it at a local computer store and a little goes a very long way.
Warm Water on a soft micro-fiber cloth works great...Just damped it...or mist it. For the touch stains I recommend a mixture of rubbing alcohol and warm water. 50/50 solution works best in my opinion. The "LCD cleaning" products out there always seem to leave a film of some sort on the screen.
Whatever cleaner you use, make sure that your monitor/laptop is turned OFF.
The heat from the screen causes the "cleaner" to heat up and evaporat and leave streaks.
I never touch my screen and made a cloth cover to put over it when I leave the office so the cleaning crew doesn't touch it. basically a pillow case that I took a sewing machine to make it fit my monitor.
I work on a black screen for CAd work, so anything on the screen is visible. Should anything get on the screen, i just dab some water from my poland spring bottle and a soft cloth. Rub it until the spot clears and then buff it with a dry spot of cloth. the cool surface of the screen allows the liquid to naturally dissipate. I tried all kinds of cleaners and they all work. i was just never told to make sure the screen is cool/OFF.
