Best way to Clean a Monitor

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
My monitor is a new Alienware 2310 3D
dust get very often in my house where i live and is now time to clean it.

Can i just buy that Philips Cleaning pack for TV found in stores.
comes with a cleaning cloth and liquid.
that are used for Flatscreen Tvs?


Question

1.Is Philips Cleaning Kit for TV safe for my Alienware monitor?

2. Should i use the liquid that comes with the philips kit
or only use the philips cloth and use water instead?
is water safer than Tv kit liquid?
(i can use clean bottle water)

3. How should i clean it properly
dip it in liquid and circular movements?
I have some dust that has dried on the monitor cause of summer heat so i need to rub a bit?

4. Should I wipe it until is totaly dry or does it need to be a bit wet and dry in air?

5. On bottom frame of the screen there is bunch of dust
that is very close to the screen
How do i wipe that off.
movement from screen toward me... or sideway from left to right?

Just wipe it off with a microfibre cloth? If its stuck, rub a bit harder...

Just clean it? I never use any special stuff to wipe mine. You can use those wet wipes.

Just wet one end of that cloth and wipe that stains, and then use the dry part to wipe off moisture.

I use a slightly damp microfibre, water is fine for most dirt but you can use a 30% isopropanol: water mix if that doesnt work.

Just dont rub the dust in, keep turning the cloth

Use the spray and put a light mist over the screen. Do not put so much on that it starts to drip into the edges and bottom of the panel.

Then use the cloth and wipe from the top straight down. Do not use a circular motion because it may cause circular scratches or streaks on the screen that will cause glare.
