Cleaning LCD & LED Screens

As you know, LCD’s are popular forms of flat screen televisions and monitors. But what you may not know is that, LCD which stands for Liquid Crystal Display, utilizes specialized technology to create a high quality and energy efficient display. Another thing that you might not know is that LCD screens cannot and should not be cleaned the same way you used to clean your older televisions.

Luckily, the items and process involved in cleaning LCD screens are simple, natural and quick.

Things Required:

soft cloth (microfiber is best; however an old white under shirt works well too)

distilled white vinegar

    Wipe and Clean

    Using the cloth, moisten it with your cleaning solution and begin to gently clean the screen left to right working your way down the screen. If you can wring solution out of the cloth, it is too wet.

    It is important that you wet the cloth rather than spraying or applying your solution on the screen and then wiping it with the cloth.
