Cleaning marks left on screen for more than 24 hours!? - Page 2

well seem like the marks are down there just below the first layer or something like that, not just on the cover...so water work!?

If it's city water it could be filtered/treated, but then you'd have to revise your statement as to it being chemical free.
AMD, I give up.

Just get a cloth wet, but not dripping wet. It's water, so it's not going to leave streaks.

I have been using plain water and Bounty paper towels on my LCD monitor for over 3½ years (for as long as I've owned it), and it's fine. Although, I don't have a high-gloss panel; I have one of those matte-like panels, so I never get scratches. If I had a high-gloss panel, then I'd still use wet paper towels, but a dry micro fiber cloth to dry it.

Besides, is water more harmful than a cleaning solvent? Water's natural, and a cleaning solvent is full of chemicals. I choose water because I have an endless supply right out of my tap and the amount I need per use is almost free. If I use a micro fiber cloth, then my cost is even lower since I'm not using paper towels. Plus, water doesn't have any chemicals in it. However, my monitor never gets so dirty that I need an actual cleaning solvent to clean it.
water would leave steak but cleaning lcd liquid leave steak? Doesn't sound too logical for me.

Micro Fiber Cloth and this:

The way I clean everything electronic in the house now. Great for screens... No streak, no residue.

(But always spray the cloth, not the electronics in question)

The LCD itself is a lot of chemical with many complicated layers, apply natural water doesn't mean it wouldn't hurt. it is not your body.

Hey dude, don't look like it is for LCD monitor at all. Don't damage your monitor before it is too late.

Wouldn't be using it if it was damaging...

Have used it on all my machines for years now. To each their own, its just my suggestion.

I just google and a lot of people say it works on LCD. Well it may works but still very risky since basically just apply some chemical which is not designed for this and officially it never says it is ok to use on LCD, just saying if using on electronics better ask the producer first.

One of the possible reasons why I didn't have these cleaning marks before would be because normally I turn on the monitor with maximum light level then it heat up and let those marks just vapor, but now monitor is having problem can cannot turn to near maximum level, then these marks take much longer time to vapor.
