    Yup, I used tap water to clean my new TX32LXD70. I now have lots of annoying stains all over the screen. :suicide:

    What would be the best method to remove the stains the tap water has given my screen?

    Best way to clean it is to use a proper tft/lcd screen cleaning solution.

    Or make your own solution using half isopropyl alcohol and half distilled water.

    Remember, always use a lint free cloth or you'll end up with lots of tiny fibers everywhere.

    Microfibre cloth [check]
    Distilled water [check]

    Do you happen to know any stores that sell isopropyl cheap? Will pick up from maplins otherwise.

    Looked just about everywhere for distilled water, can't find it. :/

    Is deionized water the same; is it safe to clean the screen with? That was all I could find.

    Just search for TFT cleaner or LCD cleaner. They are alcohol free as alcohol is used in many sprays and can be lethal to LCD screens.

    I recently got the 3 microfibre cloth pack from Tescos and they will do fine. I am not using any sprays on my screen.
