How to Clean Computer Screen?

How different types of dirty substances can harm your computer screen?

1) Dust, fingerprints, and smudges are all attracted to a laptop screen or computer monitor screen.

2) Fingerprints not only reduce the image quality but they also have the potential to be super disgusting.


3) Most touch devices have glass fronts making damage less of a concern but image quality degradation and assuming you don’t have fancy antimicrobial glass grossness is still a factor.

4) Our computer screens are covered with a layer of germs. One of the research says that laptop or computer screens and mobile screens are 18 times dirtier than the bathroom.

5) That’s why Dust, fingerprints, and smudges are a major concern – it can silently coat a computer’s screen or a monitor and disrupt the screen’s colors or brightness.

6) Over time, your shiny looking computer screen turns into an old machine.

7) Others might be worried about viruses and bacteria during flu season especially as most can potentially live on surfaces for several days, including the novel coronavirus,

8) which is why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is recommending that people disinfect or clean “high touch surfaces” when possible.

9) If you take a quick survey of LCD or HDTV manufacturers about the recommended method for cleaning the surface of your monitor or TV screen,

you’ll discover more don’ts than dos, often in conflict with one another.

In the Don’t column:

1) Never even use aerosol sprays, solvents, or abrasives. (These means don’t reach for the Windex under the kitchen sink, as tempting as it may be.)

2) Stop using anything other than warm water.

3) Not a bit uses any liquid other than cleaning fluid which is specially designed for the computer screen.

4) In no way, spray a liquid directly on the screen.

5) Never even use hard cloth.

6) Let it go to use your fingernail or a sharp object to remove stubborn stains.

In the Do’s column:

1) Make use of a dry, soft, lint-free cloth, preferably the micro-fiber cleaning cloth that may have come with your TV or monitor.

2) Apply water or cleaning fluid (designed for a computer screen) if needed.

1111It’s a common question, but the answer is very complicated, as there are hundreds of computer manufacturers, and when it comes to monitoring they advertise different solutions. 

It comes down to whether or not glass is part of your computers’ screen: for MAC users this is often the case but some Personal computer models may not have a glass covering over their LCD screens. 

When in doubt, follow your manufacturer’s user manual or reach out to your manufacturers online. 

Don’t worry about that I have explained below in this article “the common way to clean your computer screen easily” and it’s very inexpensive. But, to read your computer manufacturers’ user manual is also important. 

Clean the computer screen

Here are some common steps to clean your computer screen. 

Step 1: Turn off your computer screen (monitor).

1) If our computer screen is turned on so we can’t able to see smudges, dirt, and dust on the screen. Therefore, first of all, turn off your monitor.

2) While it’s on cleaning your monitor and pixels are all fired up could damage your screen.

3) So, turn it off.

Step 2: Wipe your monitor with a cloth.

Wiping Computer Screen with cloth

1) If dust is the only thing to tarnish your screen, a quick wiping is enough to clean it. Sprinkle a little water on a microfiber cloth and Brush the screen gently by using a microfiber cloth.

2) You should use filtered or distilled water, because tap water may contain minerals and other substances that can harm the screen or make scratches on it.

3) You should also use microfiber to clean your computer screen because it is very soft (at a microscopic level) and known for attracting dust and absorbing oils. Most importantly, it won’t damage your screen.

4) Note that we should not stress hardly because it can damage the pixels within the screen.

5) If the offending dirt is harder than dust so you can use cleaning fluid which is specially designed for monitors.

6) There are some products or cleaning fluid designed to clean LCD monitors available at online retailers like Amazon or in computer stores, but I recommend you to check the product’s ingredient list to ensure none of the active ingredients (which can harm your screen as per the manufacturer’s user manual) above are included.

7) While these cleaners may contain solvents or other potentially abrasive cleaning agents, they’re designed to kill dirt as well as germs.

8) As we mentioned in the don’t column whatever fluid you use don’t spray a liquid directly on the screen, because it may trickle down to the edge of the computer screen. It could seep into the monitor and damage the electronic components within the screen.

9) Sprinkle a little water or fluid whatever you use on the cloth and gently wipe the monitor

Step 3: Let it dry

Clean Screen with cloth.

Gently dry your monitor with a microfiber cloth. To avoid any moisture or electrical damage, before turn on your monitor make sure your screen is completely dry.

Now your computer screen is clean.

Clarification (How to Clean Computer Screen)

It’s clear that laptop and computer accessories manufacturers have various recommendations when it comes to cleaning surfaces with disinfectants.

While these cleaners may contain solvents or other potentially abrasive cleaning agents, they’re designed to kill germs.

Soap and water or microfiber cloth on its own doesn’t have the same cleaning power as disinfectants but may be a safer alternative if you’re concerned about affecting the workings of your computer.
