When cleaning your computer screen, use only water or a dedicated screen cleaning solution that contains no alcohol or ammonia. Most cleaning products contain harsh chemicals that will strip the anti-glare coating off the screen and leave it with permanent damage.
Some office supply stores sell cleaning kits specifically designed for this purpose. However, a little bit of water and a clean microfiber cloth usually do the trick.
To clean your screen,
- Turn off the computer and/or display.
- Do not spray liquid directly on the screen. Dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth or tissue with water only, or an appropriate mild glass cleaner.
- Wipe the screen gently until clean.
- If needed, wipe with a dry soft cloth to remove streaks.
