Cleaning your screen is essential to maintain its picture quality and prevent damage.
Your screen can quickly collect dust, fingerprints, food particles, spills, watermarks, and skin oils.
This blog post will cover some of the best ways to safely clean your screen without ruining it. We’ll also answer some common questions about cleaning screens.
1) Microfiber Cloths
The microfiber cloth is one of the most underrated cleaning supplies. It can be used to clean your phone, computer screen, glasses, and your television screen.
A good microfiber cloth will easily wrap around your lenses and glide across the surface of your screen without any problems. And it doesn’t have to be expensive.
Laptops and computers are a magnet for dust, finger grease, and crumbs. To clean them, start by turning them off and removing the battery if you can. Then wipe them down with a dry microfiber cloth.
Your TV screen can get dusty and smudgy over time, but you can clean it using a microfiber cloth. Gently move the cloth in circles to remove any dirt or dust.
How to Clean Microfiber Cloths
Once you’ve got your microfiber cloths all dusty and gunky, you’ll need to clean them.
Sometimes warm water alone isn’t enough to get grease and oils out of your cloths. The manufacturer of the MagicFiber Cloths recommends hand-washing them in warm water with no detergent and hanging them to dry. You can try putting your microfiber cloths in a delicates bag in the washing machine. This will generate less powerful agitation, resulting in fewer fibers in your water system.
2) Don’t Use Windex or Eyeglass Cleaners
Avoid using Windex spray on your computer & TV screen. It’s only designed for glass and may be too harsh for delicate screens. Also, avoid any type of eyeglass cleaner, as they won’t disinfect.
Dry cloths will pick up particles and germs, but water is the best way to clean a screen if there are some stubborn spots.
If you want to do a deeper cleaning, you can try Lysol wipes or a 1:1 dilution of rubbing alcohol and water on non-LCD screens.
Turn Off Your Device First.
This method prevents any possible liquid damage and makes it much easier to clean the screen. Smudges and fingerprints will be more obvious on a black background.
Gently Wipe Off Dust & Dirt
Use a soft cloth or cotton ball to gently remove any dust & dirt from your screen. Avoid rubbing the dust and dirt into the screen.
Don’t Spray Directly Onto Screen
If you use a water-based solution, spray it on the cloth instead of directly on your screen.
It’s hard to beat wipes when it comes to ease of use. And for screens, I use MiracleWipes. You can use them on TV screens, smartphones, laptops, computer screens, tablets, and cameras. And, they won’t damage your screen. They dry quickly, so they don’t leave behind streaks or sticky residue, making them safe for handheld devices.
To Sum it Up…
Cleaning your screens is essential to maintain their picture quality and prevent damage. Clean your screen with a microfiber cloth. You can also use MiracleWipes for an easy and streak-free clean. Be sure to turn off your device before cleaning, and avoid spraying any solutions directly onto the screen.
