Re: Laptop Screen Clean

I have just been using one that was sold as  Plasma and LCD TV  screen cleaner, it got rid of finger print no problem.
get a small pack as the tissues can dry out..
Can i swear, got mine fron Tesco's

Re: Laptop Screen Clean

I have two clean yellow dusters - one damp, one dry. I gently clean the television and computer screens with the damp duster and finish off with the dry one. No problems so far. Wouldn't bother with the specialist wipes - waste of money.
PS Obviously, screen needs to be cool.

I use a microfibre cloth and the threat of bodily damage if anyone touches my screen Wink

That's what was recommended to me and it worked fine.

Isopropyl alcohol solution (the liquid you would get in a cd cleaning kit)

I know exactly what you mean Asbo and if you get their 'home cinema' to go with it it gets a whole lot worse Angry
