Computers are an important tool in our everyday lives, and proper care and cleaning will help a computer perform and look better. Computers get dirty, and one of the first places that dirt and dust will accumulate is on your monitor screen. You monitor should be cleaned regularly. Using the right cleaning products and procedures will clean your monitor and avoid damaging the screen.
Determine whether your computer screen is glass or plastic. Most older computers and some new ones still have glass panes. If you have an LCD monitor, the cleaning will be more delicate because these screens are plastic.
Wipe the screen with a slightly damp cloth. Water is safe on nearly all surfaces in small amounts. Never spray water directly on your monitor screen because this could damage it. Spray or apply a little water to a lint-free cloth and wring it out until the cloth is just damp. Gently clean your monitor using the same procedure as dusting.
Choose a commercially made monitor cleaner. Many home and office supply stores, electronics shops and mass retail stores sell cleaners made for all types of computer screens. Many of the cleaners are sold as a kit with a micro-fiber cloth included.
