Hi! This is Bobby Hester on behalf of In this next clip, we’re going to demonstrate how to properly clean a LCD monitor. LCD monitors don’t have the glass front like a CRT monitor, so there are a few products that can actually harm the LCD monitor, and we want to make sure and avoid them. The product that I still like to use the most is the electronic wipes. These are safe for the LCD monitor. Before I wipe my monitor with the LCDs, I like to get all of the dust off it. If there is a little bit of grit on the screen, when I wipe the monitor with the cloth, that little piece of grit can possibly leave a scratch going across the screen. I like to get my spray first, and I’m going to turn my monitor off, and I’m going to lightly just spray the monitor down. That will get rid of any pieces of grit that could possibly scratch the monitor. Once that I have done that, then I’m good to wipe the monitor down with the electronic wipes. Just working back and forth. The great thing about these is it really evaporates quick and doesn’t leave streaks. I can’t say this is enough, but this is one of the best cleaning products that I’ve used to date. There we have it. There are some products that you need to be aware of. Different manufactures have different ideas of what you can use or can’t use on their monitor. Some say a real lightly damp cloth with water and just a little bit of soap would be okay. Others say it won’t be okay. I just like to go ahead and be safe and use the wipes that are made for electronics. More than anything, you need to avoid a few products. Products that contain acetone, ethanol alcohol, ethanol acid, ammonia, and methyl chloride. Any of those products can possibly permanently damage your monitor and change the coloration. That’s something you want to avoid. That’s cleaning a LCD monitor.
