How to properly clean your flat screen

flat screen

Did you know that flat screen monitors and TV’s require special attention when cleaning? This is because it is very easy to scratch and damage the screen. Below you will find some helpful tips to keep your TV clean and damage free:


1.Turn off the TV. If the screen is dark it is much easier to see the areas that need to be addressed.

2.Use a dry, soft cloth and gently wipe the screen.
*Note- If the dry cloth did not completely remove the dirt do not press harder! If necessary, dampen the cloth slightly with an equal ratio of distilled water to white vinegar. Many companies also sell bottles of special cleaner for flat screens.



•Do not use paper towels, toilet paper, old rags, newspaper, etc to wipe the screen. These materials can scratch the display.

•Do not use cleaning products that contain ammonia such as glass cleaner and multi purpose cleaner.
These chemicals can react with the materials in the flat screen and permanently discolor the screen.

•Do not spray liquid directly on the screen. It could easily get inside the device and cause damage.
