    What is the best way to clean a Plasma screen?

    ie what material and fluids do you use?

    The missus is nagging me to clean mine (which is just as well )


    Cheers

    Monster screen clean. It works great, it is expensive but does the job. I must stress i didnt buy it, i won a few packs from one of their brainwashing training sessions a few years back. Still got 2 packs left!!

    Sorry mate. Both, the spray is like a very fine gel and works a treat.

    Microfibre cloth - Available at Asda and larger Sainsburys.

    Super soft. No need for any liquid.

    (I certainly wouldn't use "glass" cleaner)

    Micro fibre very lightly dampened with distilled water is the best thing to use. Using checmicals of any kind coulld lead to a whole range of problems. A quick search will reveal many threads on this subject where you read tales of woe at your leisure!

    Microfibre cloth from Tesco's (99p) - boil a kettle and hold the cloth for a few seconds over the steam, then clean the screen. Works a treat!

    On my CRT TV I've always used 2x paper kitchen towels, one slightly damp with tap water and the other dry.

    Wipe the screen with the damp towel and dry with the dry towel.

    Would this method not be suitable for a plasma ?
