My LCD has dust on it but I do't know what to use to clean it.
Well there are special kits , i have fellowes easy screen cleaning wipes for tft/lcd which i got for my birthday, but to be honest i don't think it works all that great. What works for me is to get a towel, One half soaked in water, and the other half dry then just squeeze out the half soaked part so i don't create an new formed ocean on my desk, then i just wipe its will off with the wet part, and then dry clean it with the other part. Have my monitor for years now and its still functioning.
So I can still wipe with a towel I just have to press lightly now.
yeah i don't press or anything ,just going over the surface getting the dirt away, tell me if you manage to get it cleaned properly.
you could also just blast it with compressed air if it's just dusty.
I've been kind of wondering the same thing. I mean, the panel is plastic.
And you know you can't just use anything on there.
I certainly wouldn't risk any kind of glass cleaner.
There's probably some wipes that would be gentle enough for it.
Only if its uber dirty, i would use one dropled of hand soap,spread over a wet napkin, then clean it over the surface,and then another dry napkin to absorb and make it shiny and neat again. Although i won't give any garentees, but so far it works for me.
The napkin sort of thing scares me though. I know it changes when it's wet,
but a dry napkin is a bit abrasive.
I've actually been thinking of using a piece from a car chamois.
Those things are gentle enough for expensive paint finishes.
I just use 70% alcohol.
Swiffer dusters work great for picking up loose dust. For something more grimy, you could use eyeglass cleaner that's safe for plastic lenses. If you want to be extra careful, you could get a microfiber lens cleaning cloth from a camera shop instead of using paper.
I'd use a terry towel. Dry or maybe just damp. No soap or other chemicals.
If you really wanted to be sure you wouldnt scratch it, a piece of lens cloth.
