What do you use to clean your tv screen?

With these new flat screen tv's you can't just spray a cleaner on them to wash them off because the screens are very delicate and scratch very easily so I was wondering what you use to dust and clean the screen of your flat screen tv.

    Disconnect the power to your TV before you clean it each time. This is much safer and it will allow you to see the smudges and dirt better.

    Step 2
    Choose either lukewarm water or a cleaning solution to clean your TV. Commercial cleaning kits that include both a cloth and cleaning solution are available. These cleaning solutions are specially formulated to clean flat screen TVs and monitors safely and are specifically labeled safe for "laptop screen" or "LCD screen." If you wish to use a solution, you must use one of these.

    Step 3
    Dampen a soft cloth (preferably chamois, micro fiber or 100 percent cotton) with either the lukewarm water or cleaning solution. Just a gentle wiping of the screen is enough. Rubbing, scrubbing and hard pressure can damage the screen.

    Step 4
    Dust your TV and its screen on a regular basis.

  • I don't have a flat screen but in our house apparently we use my toddlers sticky fingers!

  • Nyx7 ... very funny! I have a slew of old tvs... glass is much easier to clean. As for the new fangled ones, they are cleaned just like laptop and flat screen monitors. I use a concoction of water and rubbing alcohol on a towel. They say not to use anything with chemicals or vinegar in it, which kind a threw me for a loop since my window cleaning recipe is just water/rubbing alcohol/vinegar. But I only put in a dash of vinegar so I use it and it works just fine.

  • I use my swiffer duster and wipe over it. I think pledge also has a new cleaner for electronics, you might try that.
