What do you use to clean your LCDs?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I personally don't know what to use. Soap doesn't work. Fingerprints are still there. I used windex; it worked, but I don't know if it's safe for the LCD.

What's the best product to use to clean LCDs?

Thanks!

First of all, do NOT touch your LCD. It's a much easier solution than any cleaning operations.


I gently wipe the screen with a dry, chemical free, microfibre cloth. It may not get rid of the smudges on a couple of wipes, but wipe it gently for a couple of minutes and it's good as new, no risk to the LCD, no scratches on the coating, nothing. This is assuming it's a matte monitor. Glossy monitors are easier to clean. Still would use the same thing though, just more force.

I also use a microfiber cloth. My LG HDTV came with one and I use it for my monitors as well. Just google it and you can find tons of different sizes and types.

Well there are often guests and among them, there are children and they touch the ef out of my monitor even though I try to stop them. And thanks for the suggestion!

Only windex works. Diluted alcohol doesn't work to remove fingerprints :/

I would be careful using paper. Paper is made of wood fibers which aren't very soft at the microscopic level.
