Step Three

In case the LCD screen has fingerprint marks, very normal if these are within reach of our hands, then we will need to clean it with a little alcohol. Dampen a cloth and gently wipe only the affected area.

Step Four

Dust from LCD screens can also be removed with a cloth dampened in distilled water. Just wet the cloth, do not immerse it in distilled water as this could cause the screen to malfunction from prolonged contact with liquid.

Step Five

If the LCD screen has grease stains or heavier dirt marks, it is best to clean it with a damp white vinegar cloth. Follow the above recommendations to avoid inconveniences.

Step Six

Other chemicals should not be used. It's important to keep in mind that these screens are extremely delicate, thus any contact with substances like acetone, ethyl alcohol, ammonia, or others could result in permanent damage.

Step Nine

Do not clean an LCD with paper, as this could cause scratches.
