Alcohol solution

We recommend using a simple alcohol solution to clean an LCD screen. This solution is composed of 1 part distilled water and 1 part 50% isopropyl alcohol. Be careful that isopropyl alcohol is flammable.

The Isopropyl alcohol 50% is common. But if you find a 70%, 91%, or 99% isopropyl alcohol, adjust the formula to use less alcohol and distilled water.

By mixing these two components in a bottle, will produce a real solution cleaning LCD screens. Remember not to use tap water, distilled water only.

NEVER use tissues (Kleenex type) to clean the screen. That is so inefficient, that once it happens, it will leave parts around the screen. Try to find microfibre cloth to clean the screen. Cloths that come with glasses are usually a good choice.

Never spray any liquid directly on the LCD screen. Gently wipe the screen up and down and wait for it to dry.

Be careful not to let the liquid drops the sides of the monitor.

In addition make sure not to press hard on the LCD screen. You can permanently damage an LCD screen by pressing on it too hard.
