Can anyone recommend a good cleaner and cloth for cleaning my LCD screen?
Avoid Brillo pads ........
I read that for LCD screens use a spectacle lens cleaner and cloth obtainable from opticians. I made a note of it as I am shortly to buy an LCD tv for my kitchen and I thought it would need regular cleaning in that room.
Just get any micro fibre cloth and avoid any cleaning solutions. Just use the slightly damp cloth with water.
I only use a spectacle lens cleaning cloth and nothing else to dust the screen.
If necessary (i.e. a mark/fingerprint has appeared) dampen the cloth a bit first. Never leave water droplets on the screen though!!
Should not use sprays/chemicals (unless they are specifically stated as suitable for cleaning LCD screens - personally I avoid them altogether) - you can cause chemical damage to an LCD screen - even water droplets should not be allowed to simply dry out.
My new Sammy came with it's own cleaning cloth, and the instruction booklet suggests just using this, slightly dampened with water.
Yep, micro fibre (e-cloths) are great and leave a streak/smear free finish. Just make sure you get the right variety as there seems to be versions for different applications now, including your body parts. The one that I use is for stainless steel applicances and really fine - its the 'smooth' blue one. They cost less than a fiver (I have actually seen them for a couple of quid somewhere but forgot where) and will last for years. They require an absolute minimum amount of water (don't spray the screen but add just enough water to make the cloth slightly damp) so are effectivly free in use and very environmentally friendly. Plus you can use them for many other tasks too. www-e-cloth.co.uk for more info and your local hardware/kitchen store to buy.
Have a look at my post on :
I have the same one.The sheet that came in the pack said it was to clean the black surround though,not the actual screen itself.Whether it's suitable or not,I'm really not sure.
