What to use when cleaning my computer or television screen is one of the most often asked questions new owners ask. Using the proper cleaner and cleaning methods will increase the lifespan of the equipment and using the wrong products can dramatically shorten that same lifespan.
#1. Read the manual. We have yet to find one for any electronic device that has an LCD (LED,Plasma,touchscreen etc) that does not include cleaning instructions.
#2. As a general rule of thumb most manufacturers do not recommend using alcohol or ammonia based cleaners which can have a chemical reaction with the device surface. The other hazard comes from detergents that use abrasives as the cleaning agent.
#3. If the device is “on” turn it “off.”
#4. Fold your rag into a small roughly two or three square in pad. Spray a small amount of PixelClean on to the cleaning cloth supplied with the kit.
#5 Wipe it on in a circular motion paying special attention to heavy concentrations of whatever it is you might be trying to remove. (Repeating this step maybe required if this is the first time you have cleaned your 2 year old device).
#6 Once you have the debris on the rag start turning the rag to a fresh surface and continue to wipe up any leftover cleaning solution. Each time you turn the rag to a new surface wipe with just a little less pressure on the screen. At this stage you are really polishing away any streaks left by the cleaning solution.
#7 Your almost done, just one more step. Change the angle of the light and your focus on the screen to be sure you all of the dirt and any streaks are polished out.
#8 We recommend that you rinse or wash the cloth out occasionally. Our clothes are dryer safe but we tend to lose them with the missing sock so air drying is our preferred method.
