It has happened to all of us that we have tried to clean one of these devices and unwanted stains and reflections have appeared, what can we do to solve it? Below, you will find a guide on how to make the screens spotless without causing any damage:
A microfiber cloth should be enough to remove dust and fingerprints from the screens that accumulate on a daily basis. Although the frequency of cleaning will also depend on the device and the use we make of it. For example, a TV should be cleaned at most once a week; because it is a device that we do not usually touch too much. Meanwhile, the screen of a cell phone is so exposed that we might even consider carrying one of these cloths with us at all times, so that we can always keep it spotless. In addition to microfiber cloths, there are also other viable alternatives depending on the size of the device, such as a feather duster or a compressed air spray. Remember that you should never use hard fiber cloths or kitchen paper, as they can scratch them. And if you are going to remove dust from a TV and use compressed air, you may introduce some of the dirt inside the device through the air vents, connections or speakers. And that will inevitably shorten its lifespan. So you need to take special care.
Which liquid to use?
Sometimes dry cleaning is not enough. Fingerprints, grease stains and dirt can be very difficult to remove with a cloth alone. For this reason, we can also use some liquid products. However, remember never to apply them directly on the screen. The ideal is to moisten the cloth with them, and then gently rub the screen. Always from top to bottom. There are some cleaning products that we usually use for other types of surfaces that are not suitable for electronic devices, such as acetone, toluene, ethyl acid, ammonia or other equally aggressive products. The only products that can be used without risking damage are water, glass cleaner and isopropyl alcohol. And always in small quantities and with great care that no humidity enters the interior of the apparatus. The ideal formula is a mixture of equal parts of distilled water and isopropyl alcohol. And it will be useful for all types of screens, whether LCD, LCD-Led, plasma, etc.
