How do I clean my monitor? - Common Computer Questions

Question: How do I clean my monitor?


Answer: This will depend on what type of monitor you have. If you have the older CRT monitor then it will have a glass screen and be easy to clean. You can spray some glass cleaner on a soft cloth then wipe down the screen and follow it up with a dry cloth. LCD monitors are more sensitve and are not as easy to clean. You never want to put too much pressure on an LCD screen since it may cause damage. First try a soft cloth like a microfiber cloth and gently wipe the screen. If its just dusty then you can use something like a Swiffer duster that is good at picking up dust. There are also special purpose LCD cleaning kits that do a good job of cleaning your screen without causing damage. Just be sure to never spray anything directly on your monitor.
