To spray or not... LCD Cleaner

LCD's are very sensitive to everything and markup easily.  One of the first things I was told when I got my first is that I was to NEVER spray the screen with a glass cleaner because it is very easy to scratches.

Rather than buying into the expensive LCD Cleaner solutions available.  Below is the proper method and precautions before cleaning the surface.  This method should also be used to clean HDTV, projection TV, and Plasma's.

The days of just wiping the screen are over.  You must be very gentle and never put pressure directly on the screen, even with your hand. 

Find a soft cloth , preferably cotton or microfiber.  Do NOT use tissue paper, toilet paper, or bath towels/cloth as these will scratch your monitor as well.

Turn your screen off so you can see any marks on the surface.

You will need:
 Distilled Water


Dilute the vinegar with the distilled water at a ratio of 1 to 1.  Then spray solution onto your cloth.  Never spray any liquid or cleaner directly on your screen.  Wipe the screen in one direction from top to bottom.

How do you clean your screens?  Have you tried this solution or do you buy cleaners?  Do you know of any other tips our readers show know about?   Please leave me some comments below and let me know.

Thanks for stopping b y,
