 tips on properly cleaning a LCD display

More and more people prefer using LCD monitors instead of classic CRT monitors. People using an LCD screen save space on their desktop, consume less electricity and enjoy a flat monitor that is easy on the eyes. With such features, many people like to buy them. Today, their availability is  more plentiful and cheaper than they once were. Before LCD monitors, it was common to clean a CRT monitor with window cleaner because of the display’s glass surface. LCD monitors should be cleaned more carefully. Below are tips on properly cleaning a LCD display.

Recommendations for Cleaning a LCD display:

  1. Always have the screen turned off when you clean it.
  2. Buy a specialized liquid cleaner or spray from your local computer shop.
  3. Never spray the cleaner directly onto your screen, instead, spray it on the cloth first.
  4. Use a smooth (microfiber) cloth to avoid scratches on the display.
  5. Do not use pressure on the screen; wipe the display gently from top to bottom.
  6. Wait until the screen is absolutely dry to turn it on.

Tips and Tricks:

  • You can mix your own cleaning liquid. Use a 50/50 mix of 70% Isopropyl alcohol and distilled water and use the mixture in a spray bottle.
