Full Answer

  1. Turn the TV off

    Switch the LED TV off before you start cleaning it. It is easier to see dust and spots on a dark television screen.

  2. Dust the screen

    Rub the screen very gently with a dry microfiber cloth to remove all dust. Use only the minimum amount of pressure necessary to remove the dust. LED screens scratch easily, and portions of the screen may burn out if you apply too much pressure.

  3. Rub the screen with a vinegar-water solution

    Dampen the microfiber cloth with a mixture containing equal parts of distilled water and distilled white vinegar. The vinegar keeps the water from streaking as it dries. Gently rub the screen in a circular motion to remove all spots, and avoid vigorous scrubbing. Do not over wet the screen, and pay close attention to the edges of the screen to make sure liquid does not seep into the TV.

  4. Dry the screen

    Thoroughly dry the screen with a clean, dry microfiber cloth.
