    Checked out the search and couldn't find an answer to this one so hear goes; what do you all use for cleaning the screen of your LCDs and Plasmas? I don't want to use Mr Sheen, but as the do attract dust like the old glass CRTs they must need wiping off at some time. Any great ideas? Rich...

    Well the screen itself doesn't tend to get dusty like CRTs do.
    Usually in the instructions they tell you what to use to clean the screen if you get a dirty mark on it.

    Whatever you do DONT USE chemical cleaners like Mr Sheen or dusters you have used in the past with this sort of thing. As far LCD's go at least, they will remove the coating on the screen. Examples exist on the forum of this happening :eek:

    safest i found is to use just a damp cloth.
    some screen wipes aren't designed to be used on LCD screens.
    atleast with a damp cloth, you know its just water.

    samsung just supply a soft cloth and recommend you use that simply damp. Cant see why any very soft cloth wouldnt be fine. Just as other people have suggested use a new one and dont let anyone use it for anthing else.

    Oh... I have some very soft micro-fibre cloths that I use for polishing my car, if anyone touches them they get crucified. They will be fine for the screen! :D
