what is the best way to clean an lcd monitor?
what should i use and how should i do it?
I just use a soft cloth slighty dampened with warm water and lighty wipe the panel. If there's fingerprints or something else on there then put a couple drops of mild liquid handsoap on the wet cloth.
brilianize (cleaner avail' from tap plastics) + microfiber carwash cloth (dust free)
a soft cloth and the blood of the person who touched it
I use a lens cleaner made for glasses.
I grab an monitor cloth from an office supply store for a few bucks and give it a light damping with vinegar. Does wonders where water fails and does not damage the screen.
i use windex and paper towel.
Yikes, hope you don't like the thing. Windex contains Ammonia, which can kill your screen over time. You can see the damage in a side by side of monitors. The picture is sorta yellowish and just not as clear anymore. Add that to the tiny scratches you can get from paper towel and you'll really notice a difference in the end.
I use Endust Electronics wipes, or EE cleaner on a wash cloth that is about 5 years old and VERY soft.
What ever you use, be sure to go in lines (up/down, side to side) rather than in circles. Any scratches that might happen to develop would be FAR more visible in a circle.
Yikes. Juvenall is right, glass cleaner usually contains ammonia which over time will eat into plastic and fog it up permanantly. Using a paper towel is about like using fine-grain sandpaper. I'd suggest not using either of those anymore unless you really want to ruin your monitor.
Office depot has some pre moistened wipes for this. Just don't press to hard.
