What you should not use to clean a TV screen

Dust, fingerprints, and various types of stains often accumulate on the TV screen. Experts strongly advise against wiping the screen with alcohol, acetone, baking soda, vinegar, or any powder.

Many common dirt and dust removers are too harsh for sensitive screens. Paper towels, wet wipes, old newspapers, and toilet paper are also not suitable for wiping. OBOZREVATEL figured out how to wash the TV screen so as not to damage it.

Basic rules for wiping the TV

Before you start cleaning, pay attention to basic safety precautions, so unplug the TV from the mains. Do not apply liquid directly to the screen; moisten a cloth.

When wiping, do not press too hard on the TV screen. The cloth should be soft, and you can clean the dust in the corners with a cotton swab.

How to wipe the TV screen

The simplest way is the most effective. You don't need to invent anything; just buy special wipes to clean the screen. Usually, there are 50-100 of them in a package.

You can also buy liquids and foams in specialized stores and apply them with a microfiber cloth.

If your fingers are visible on the screen, dampen a microfiber cloth with distilled water and gently wipe off the dirt. Regular water can leave streaks. However, many TV manufacturers do not recommend wiping the screen with anything wet at all.
