Turn off the computer and display.
Use water only to dampen a lint-free cloth.
Never spray liquid directly on the LCD screen. Never use any commercial type glass cleaners.
Gently wipe the screen and dry if needed with another clean lint free cloth.
Don't scrub the screen as you may scratch the plastics.


There is a product called "Klear Screen" that Apple computers has apparently tested and has said it doesn't harm plastics.

I still only use a damp cloth.
The only easy day was yesterday.

I wondered if BABY WIPES would be a suitable and safe thing to use. Any thoughts.
At the moment I use the damp cloth and finish off with the lens cleaner that came with my new spectacles.

Many have chemicals that can/will/do damage the covering of the screens.

Ammonia, alcohol, citric acids etc, can all be damaging to LCD type screens.

I wouldn't even use Baby Wipes as I'm not sure what's in those wipes.

The best idea is to follow the cleaning instructions in the owners manual for the system.

(BTW - the use of all caps is considered shouting. Sparing use is EMPHASIS.)
