When cleaning your electronic screens, it is very important to use the correct solutions to avoid damaging the screen.

No ammonia based cleaners should be used on electronics. This includes general purpose cleaners, glass/window cleaners, multipurpose cleaners, etc. These sprays are too abrasive and will wear down the protective coating on your screen.

  1. Turn off your monitor completely.
  2. Wipe down your screen with a microfiber cloth.
  3. If needed, spray your cloth with screen-cleaner fluid (there is cleaner made specifically for this purpose) or a gentle solution of distilled water and distilled white vinegar, then wipe down the screen.

Never spray the electronics/screen directly. Always apply cleaning agent to soft/microfiber cloth and then wipe the surface with the cloth.

See this article on ways to clean your electronics using household items.

Cleaning the LCD Panel:
CAUTION: Isopropyl alcohol is a flammable liquid. Never spray or pour any liquid directly on the LCD panel.

  1. Apply the cleaning solution to the microfiber cloth (DO NOT spray the cleaning solution directly on the LCD panel).
  2. Wipe the LCD screen gently with a soft, dry cloth.
