Clean a flat screen television by using a cloth and a mixture of water and vinegar to gently wipe the screen area. Use a soft cloth suitable for cleaning eyeglasses, and be careful not to press too hard, as this can damage the monitor.
- Turn off the monitor
The monitor gives off light when it is turned on, which makes it difficult to clean. It is best to have it off in order to see dirt and other smudges.
- Use a soft, dry cloth
The monitor can be damaged by a harsh cloth or by pressing too hard when cleaning. Too much pressure when pressing down on the screen can cause the pixels to burn, which causes permanent damage. Do not use paper towels or other rough fabrics.
- Apply cleaning solution
Use a mixture of water and vinegar for your cleaning solution. Do not rub the screen too much, as this can cause damage to your monitor. Avoid spraying liquid directly onto the screen, and refrain from using too much liquid, because this can cause damage that may be irreversible.
