  • You can buy electronic wipes. DO NOT use windex.

  • I use my homemade window cleaner (which is mostly water and alcohol) and a very soft rag. Paper towels will scratch the screen. Do not press too hard on the screen and wipe left to right and then top to bottom...

  • Never paper towels. No cleaner. Use a microfiber cloth very slightly damp when the computer is off. You can get microfiber cloths at the Dollar Store in different colors. I got one in a special color that I use just for computers.

  • Here is a link that explains what I said in detail. When I said damp microfiber cloth I mean with water.

  • Honestly I use a baby wipe. However BEFORE using it ring it out!!!!!! I take the RUNG OUT baby wipe and start wiping, then I take a dry lint-free towel and wipe it down after the RUNG OUT baby wipe.

  • I use the computer wipes sold at Best Buy. The one time I used a moist (water) soft rag, my screen went blank- I had to get a new computer. May have been a coincidence, but never again-
