How to Clean LED Monitor Screens

Save

LED monitors are flat-screen computer screens that display a clear, crisp image. These monitors take up much less space than the traditional computer monitor, making the LED both functional and efficient. Traditional computer monitors are made of glass and can be cleaned with any glass cleaner. LED monitors are made of a heavy plastic and must be cleaned with extreme caution, as using the wrong cleaning products can cause permanent damage.
