Being aware of how to clean a TV screen is as vital as knowing how to clean your kitchen.
After a hectic working week, you would surely love to enjoy the weekend time catching your favourite shows or movies with the family. But how can you enjoy yourself to the fullest when the smudges on the tv screen keep disturbing you? So, let’s dive right into the solutions of TV Mates!
How to clean a TV screen in the right way
One interesting fact: You don’t need any complicated cleaning procedure or expensive cleaning service. With very simple ingredients, you can clean a tv screen on your own
Before trying out anything, please check your owner’s manual for their recommendations to make sure you are not accidentally voiding your warranty.
First! Do not forget to turn the device off.
If possible, you should even unplug the device. Why? Since not only does it keep you safe, but it also helps to see the smears clearly. The light from the TV monitor display may deter us from realizing the dirty areas.
It’s weird when you watch TV and clean the TV monitor at the same time, isn’t it?
A soft cloth is a great choice
My suggestion is that you should use an ultra-soft piece of cloth or a microfiber towel. Just like the kinds you’d clean a tablet screen or a pair of glasses with. As long as the duster’s surface is smooth, you can use it.
While cleaning, please apply gentle pressure to wipe away the dust and light smears.
Distilled water is extremely helpful
For tough grime, you can moisten the cloth with distilled water to expunge them. Spray the water onto the duster and rub the dirt off the screen with a tender motion. Use another cloth to dry up the screen to do away with the excess water; otherwise, new streaks might pop up in no time.
One thing to take note of: Wring the cloth properly to ensure no liquid will drip from it. I’m sure that you don’t want your rag dripping wet as that may leave behind water streaks. Damp is perfect.
A mild dish soap is a good method

This cleaning solution is effective yet gentle. It helps erase grimes radically.
Try mixing a little amount of mild dish soap with a decent amount of water. By doing so, you can have for yourself a special homemade cleaning solution that eliminates sticky messes or oily fingerprints perfectly. The smell from oily particles also fades away gradually once you apply this method.
Things you should avoid
Listen! I don’t want your televisions to get any damage due to carelessness. That’s why you have to keep this in me to never make these mistakes. Here are some noteworthy instructions that readers must take notice of!
DO NOT press hard to remove the firm stains
The television screen is soft and thin. If we accidentally scrub the smudges off too hard, we may scratch it. Pushing directly on the screen is absolutely a no as the TV panel can be quite sensitive.
Don’t insist on dealing with headstrong stains in a rough manner. Or else, the pixel of your TV screens might burn out.
AVOID dripping water onto the screen.
As I have mentioned in the first part, you have to spray water onto the cloth, not the screen.
Let me explain! Water and electricity are mutual rivals. The liquid can leak through the frame and infiltrate the components inside, leading to electric-shock damage once the water seeps into the device. It’s hazardous for you to touch the panel at that time, of course, for it can result in you being electrocuted.

AVOID using TOXIC chemicals.
Nature degreasers are fantastic ways to remove the disgusting smell and dirt. Unlike them, ethyl alcohol or ethyl acetate contains harsh chemicals. They might discolor the screen forever.
Windex is no unless your TV is antique with a tube glass display – but this is rarely the case! In this modern era, hardly does a household own a tube TV.
Instead, you should look for trustworthy natural-based cleaning substances, such as vinegars, which are specifically used for cleaning electronic screens.
It’s better NOT TO paper products
It’s essential for you to know that the LCD monitor is so soft that a tough piece of paper can scratch it.
So please avoid using toilet paper, torn rags, tissue paper, paper towel, or something like your old T-shirt to rub the screen off. These non-ultrasoft materials can hurt the display.
The very last words to my readers
The same steps can apply with similar subjects, including your laptop screen, mirror, windows, sunglasses – but not vice versa!
One more fun fact for you: TVMates have to be caring when taking care of our TV screens just like the way we take care of our sensitive skin.
Anyway, one thing for sure is that you really need to learn about how to clean a TV screen, as that brings you a much better time enjoying your favourite shows.
Those methods above are safe to use on almost any TV screen type. So, what do you say? Taking my advice into account is not a bad idea, alright?
