How to safely clean your TV screen with quick easy tips

Flat screen televisions and computer screens are a little sensitive and can be easily scratched and damaged during cleaning, but thankfully there is an easy process.

First and foremost, remember to be very gentle whilst cleaning as pushing and scrubbing the screen may cause pixels to burn out. Using chemicals, window cleaner, soap or abrasive powder on the TV or computer screens may damage or discolour the screen.

STEP 1: Check your manual for instructions to ensure that you do not clean it in a manner that will void your warranty. Cleaning recommendations can vary greatly from one manufacturer to the next.

STEP 2: Turn off the television and unplug the power cord. This will make it easier to see the finger prints and dust.

STEP 3: Use a microfibre cloth and gently wipe the screen and TV frame.

STEP 4: If needed to remove stubborn marks, dampen the microfibre cloth with 50/50 water and vinegar.  Spray the solution onto the cloth, but do not spray the solution directly onto the screen as this may damage the screen.

If you don’t have a microfibre cloth, you can use a lint free soft cloth as an alternative. Do not use a rag, tissues, paper towels or toilet paper as these items may scratch the screen.
