this is how i have always cleaned my screens...including my laptop...

spray windex on a paper towel, then wipe screen...be careful you don't want the liquid to run down the screen which is why you spray on towel and then wipe screen-very important.

You mean, you want to do that by yourself? Shocked

I usually use window cleaner service. :wink:













Clean the Screen gives some good advice, I think.

I use myself the cleaning tissues I had used before for my glasses.

You're certain that's safe, dragon49?

i haven't had any problems, you just have to make sure that the liquid doesn't get in the cracks all the way around the screen (hence no spraying the screen). that is what my old IT guy told me to do...i switched jobs, he didn't get fired Wink

would i stake my life on it? nope, but i will check with a good friend of mine who is big into computers...be back in a min...

A window cleaning service, Walter! Why didn't I think of that! :wink:

Thanks for the link.
Ah, turn off the screen first!
And vinegar! There's a thought!

Tried that once, G. (Or a bit of spit on a tissue) It didn't work! Confused

Someone at work suggested a tissue lightly soaked with mildly soapy water. But that didn't seem such a good idea to me as I thought it might leave some traces of soap residue on the screen.
I like your post-spectacle cleaning cloth idea, too, Walter.

The thing is, the screen of my home computer & my laptop are quite different. I assume the same methods are suitable for both?

Don't assume that, get expert advice. Some CRT screens (cathode ray tube--i.e., like the one in your telly) have a special coating on them. The best thing you can do is to contact the manufacturer for their advice.

Thanks for that, dragon49, but I'm not sure that Ebay has the help I'm after. I was actually wondering what methods A2Kers used to clean their screens.
