Once And For All, The Right Way You Clean Your TV Screen

December 30, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi

For some reason, television screens, specifically LED screens, are hard to clean. It seems like no matter how much I wipe the screen with a microfiber cloth, there’s still a smudge here or there. Not to mention, TVs become covered in dust in a matter of, uh, a minute. Once and for all, this is the best way to clean your TV screen.

It’s important to note, you should never use alcohol or ammonia-based cleaning fluid because many modern HDTVs come with a special coating, which can be stripped by certain cleaning fluids. Also, never directly apply cleaning fluid to the screen because it can ruin the television’s picture.

Buy yourself a microfiber cloth to get this job done. Do not use a regular paper towel! Before getting started, it’s best to unplug the TV or power the entire thing down, at least. Once the screen is cool to the touch, use a can of compressed air to remove as much dust as possible. Because of the pressure of the air, spray the can about a foot away from the screen.

After using the compressed air, take your microfiber cloth and lightly wipe the screen to pick up any remaining dust. Avoid “buffing” the screen in circular motions. If your TV still has gunk on the screen and the microfiber cloth isn’t cutting it, you can dampen the cloth with distilled water. If you need to use distilled water, be sure that the cloth isn’t soaked through, it should just be damp to the touch. Once you wipe the screen with your damp cloth, wipe away any excess moisture with a dry microfiber cloth.

Following these steps, your TV screen should be clean and shiny! Remember never to use any cleaners with alcohol or ammonia and only use a microfiber cloth.
