LCD screens have gained popularity over the past few years, but when it comes to cleaning, they are nothing like the glass television screens of yore. LCD screens are much more sensitive than a traditional glass screen, so taking a windex soaked paper towel to it will lead to scratching and clouding. But LCD screens gather dust faster than regular screens, so what’s a girl to do?
Here are the steps you need to take to clean your LCD screens safely and effectively:
- Gently wipe the screen with a dry microfiber cloth (like the ones we use at MaidPro!)
- Use a proper LCD screen cleaning solution. Most solutions on the market are simply a 50/50 solution of isopropyl alcohol and water. If you feel confident, mix it yourself. Otherwise, head to your local office supply store and pick up a spray bottle of the stuff.
- Apply the solution to the cloth (never apply it directly to the surface!)
- Gently wipe down the screen. If you rub or press the cloth, you risk damaging the screen.
The solution should do most of the work for you. If you are having trouble getting any marks out, let the screen dry and repeat the process a few more times. There are special products available for more difficult marks.
