View Full Version : Monitor question...

What is the best stuff to clean your screen with? I current lens cleaner with a soft cloth, but it smears too much, so I'm wondering what the best thing to use is.

I have also used those wipes from Best Buy, and am equally unimpressed.

I use anything I can find... people debate on this subject a lot though. Some people go crazy when you say you use Windex and other people MUST use an expensive solution to clean their screen.... ;)

I just found out too you shouldnt use those pads you get at stores, like kleen & dry or it can scratch the coatin gon your monitor...or something like that.

3M Screen Cleaner + 3M Screen Cleaning Pads...$19.99

bought it at a office supply place like 4 years ago when I first got my comp. no streaks, smears, scratches, just a clean screen.

Macho, I posted a similar thread a while back. I own a KDS Avitron with an anti_glare screen. Man is this sucker hard to clean without streaking.

Roundeye suggested not to use window cleaner with ammonia can damage the antiglare over time. So I found some without it.

I use a soft cloth. I still have to do a little polishing with the cloth as even the window cleaner I found, leaves streaks.
