Cleaning your computer screen: mistakes to avoid making! Dust, splashes, and fingerprints on your computer screen are an everyday occurrence, and they can be a real annoyance. But the doubt that comes to mind when we notice them is: now how do I get rid of them? Are there specialized products for cleaning computer screens? What type of cloth should I use? Can I use water?
In this post, we will reveal the mistakes to avoid making, and the secret to having dust-free screens that are as good as new!
For a thorough clean carried out in safety, turn off the computer and unplug it (if it is a laptop, disconnect the charger).
The best type of cloth for dusting and cleaning your computer screen is a microfibre one, sold in all supermarkets. The soft, anti-static surface of this fabric removes every trace of dust and fingerprints, without scratches.
Toilet paper, tissues, cotton rags, or kitchen rolls will instead leave lint on the screen: avoid using them.
When you clean computer screens, and also LCD monitors, plasma TVs, and all delicate electronic devices, you need to be careful. Don’t apply too much pressure with the cloth on the screen, because you could permanently damage it. A slow, gentle movement is more than enough. If the stains don’t go away on the first wipe, try again with circular movements.
To clean your computer screen, you can slightly dampen the microfibre cloth with just water, but this solution may not be good enough, especially for the most stubborn fingerprints. Our advice is to use a specialised product, such as Mister Magic® Glass, and Screen Cleaner.
Mister Magic® Glass and Screen Cleaner is a gentle detergent that works against fingerprints and dust and can be used on all glass or crystal surfaces. So not only computer screens, but also smartphones, tablets, LCD monitors, TVs, mirrors, and even precious crystal objects such as vases and decorative tables.
The formula of Mister Magic® Glass and Screen Cleaner is enriched with natural alcohol derived from the fermentation of vegetables.
