Think of LCD Displays just like the soft and delicate skin of your newborn baby
To prepare the solution for cleaning LCD monitors, you will need deionized or distilled water and vinegar or iso-propyl alcohol - Don't use tap water or mineral water as they could leave white marks on the screen because of the dissolved salts.
Word of Caution: Be sure that the LCD screen is dry before closing it or using the computer. Do not use any solutions that contain Acetone, ethyl alcohol, toluene, ethyl acid, ammonia, or methyl chloride. Never touch the LCD screen with your fingers as this can cause the pixels to burn out.
okay, Methyl alcohol...

that doesn't tell me anything...

can you use windex? No windex has Ammonia..

Here's the best answer I found so far

Here are some helpful cleaning tips and guidelines:
Unplug or turn off your LCD screen or device and closely examine the condition of the screen.

Take notice of any smudges or areas to be cleaned.

Use a Microfiber Cloth to remove any obvious dust and gently brush off any dirt particulars.

Although you can clean any LCD screen with a 50/50 solution of distilled water/isopropyl alcohol, using
an old cotton T-shirt or handkerchief, it is recommended that you acquire the proper cleaning solutions
and cloths to clean your LCDs. Many of these LCD screens are very expensive items, proper cleaning kits
such as Klear or iKlear should be used to clean and keep your LCD displays in a crisp clear pristine condition.

Never spray any cleaning solutions directly onto the screen, spray it into the your cleaning cloth.

Very, very gently wipe the screen in a circular motion. Do not press hard on the cloth. Let the cleaning
solution do its job.

Don't press hard or touch the screen with your fingers or you may leave oily prints and smears.

Don't leave any liquid on the screen, remove all excess moisture as it may damage your screen.

Let the LCD screen dry thoroughly before you switch it back on.

For hard to remove stains or ink marks you may have to repeat this procedure several times. Don't apply
hard pressure, remember you can also purchase special cleaners for heavy ink marks and the like.


when cleaning..
should I do clockwise or counter-clockwise motion? :biggrinjester:



anyway, what do you use to clean your LCD screen? PC, laptop, LCD TV
what's good to restore the LCD screen coating?

I'm going to try this next

32Oz of Isoprophl Alcohol for 2.99 USD


distilled water



then do a 50/50 Mix
[like mixing car (antifreeze distilled water and everything) ]

then put it on a spray bottle...


accoring to the website, this is a good home-made LCD cleaner so I guess I will try that next

I just take a microfiber cloth and wipe the screen. I have special spray for my laptop, but tv I don't put anything.
