Im so afraid to put anything on the tv without knowing if it will damange the screen... Does anyone know for a fact how to gently remove crayon from the screen?? Im a panicing mess right now! HELP!

  • you can use wipes, like the one for your childs that should work
    or just wet a sponge with water....

  • thankfully my sister just called me and said the same thing. Diaper wipes. It worked like magic! One more reason to love Huggies! =)

  • If that doesn't work there is rubbing alcohol... it is great for removing crayons and paint from just about everything. I would stay away from the water though if it close to the side of the screen it could be obsorbed into the crack and short circuit the tv

  • I'd call the tv manufacturer's customer service or their website

  • I always use plain water and a microfiber cloth to clean our flat panel TV.

  • Call the manufacturer and ask them. If you use something they don't recommend, you can void out the warranty.
