How To Clean LCD Tv Screen

Knowing how to clean an LCD TV Screen is very important to getting the best out of your home electronics. The screen is not glass, so you can't use the same cleaners as you would for a window. When you are looking for a cleaner, do not buy ones that have alcohol or ammonia. Here is a step by step guide to cleaning your LCD TV Screen:

  1. Wipe down with a microfiber cloth. These are usually sold for cleaning eyeglasses, but they are perfect for cleaning television screens. A TV produces static electricity, which causes charged pieces of dust to stick to it pretty rapidly. Microfiber clings to these pieces a lot better than other things. Using paper-based sheets to wipe down your screen can sometimes leave pieces of fuzz behind. For best results, wipe the edges of the screen first, that way you aren't pushing dust into the corners.
  2. Wipe down with a damp sponge. Only use a moist sponge to wipe down your LCD. If it is too wet, you risk water dripping down into your electronics and then you are screwed. Water will dampen the static electricity and will pick up the dust. Wipe the edges first and then work your way from the top down. Dry immediately after you wipe it down with a lint free rag. Do not use any cloth or cleaning device that has any sort of abrasive. This will deform your screen. Don't do it.
  3. Moisten a sponge with a very mild cleaning agent and follow the same instructions as above. Do not spray it directly on the screen. Only use a cleaning agent if there is something beyond dust on the screen.

Take this time to clean any vents on your TV to prevent dust buildup there.
