Hi all,

I need to clean the screen on my laptop, I can see little bits of dirt over my movies...

Is there a right or wrong way to do this?

Is a glass cleaner like Mr Muscle (et all) ok or will it smear?


TIA

proper screen cleaner should work

Its not made of glass, so don't use glass cleaner. Its made of plastic and many glass cleanrs advise not to use them on plastic.

Safest way is a moist (not wet or even damp, just moist) lint-free cloth.

You must avoid any moisture running down the bottom and getting into the electronics.

Otherwise, just common sense

That is, don't use a spray applicator.

The screens are glass --- if they were plastic they wouldn't break so expensively. :D

What you can damage with harsh cleansers are anti-reflective coatings, and maybe a plastic film anti-scratch layer.
