How to Clean an LCD Screen

The LCD screens are very delicate, so their cleaning requires special care. We must remember that these screens are composed of liquid crystal, and improper treatment could cause scratches and even affect their operation.
Here we tell you how to clean an LCD screen efficiently and without much effort. Read along with me.
Steps to follow:

Step One

Turn off your LCD screen to clean it. If you discover a stain while using the monitor, wait until you finish and turn it off. After a few minutes, you can proceed to clean.

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.

Dust from LCD screens can also be removed with a cloth dampened in distilled water. Just wet the cloth, do not soak it in distilled water because contact with a lot of liquid could affect the screen’s operation.

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

Do not use any other type of chemicals. Remember that these are very delicate screens, so any contact with acetone, ethyl alcohol, ammonia, or others could cause irreversible damage.

Do not apply liquids directly to the screen. Always lightly dampen a cloth and wipe with it, keeping it away from the screen edges to prevent liquid from getting into the screen.

Do not apply pressure. Whenever cleaning an LCD screen, do it gently because applying force can leave marks on the image.

Step Nine

Do not use papers to clean an LCD as this could cause scratches.
