5 Quick tips for cleaning a computer screen without chemicals

LCD or LED displays attract a lot of fine particulate dust and heavy grime stains. Apart from dust, fingerprints and marks are the other enticing stains your screens attract. Using water to clean these gadgets is highly risky as it damages the screen properties. However, you can use natural home tips for cleaning these electronic devices.

Check out these five quick tips:

1.Do not use direct tap water as a cleaning agent for display screens as they damage the pixels directly 

Although water is a universal solvent for cleaning, it is not an excellent option for your screens. The fast-forward pixel technology utilized for developing them is often lost with the usage of tap water. Also, tap water tends to leave wipe marks. So instead of clearing your screen spotless, they do the opposite.

2.Clean the screens with the mixture of distilled vinegar and water to clear marks, grime and dust completely 

Higher concentrations of acid will affect the display resolution of your screens. That is why a diluted solution of distilled vinegar is prepared by mixing equal proportions of vinegar and water. Plunge a clean microfiber cloth into the solution and wipe off the screens in small circular motions.

3.Use rubbing alcohol instead of vinegar to avoid the leftover residue or streaks after cleaning

The primary issue in cleansing the display screens is the streak marks. The remaining residue of the chemical used for cleaning is more disturbing than the dust. To avoid such a case, you can use a mixture of rubbing alcohol and water. Spray the solution on the microfibre cloth and wipe it out clearly until the whole area is covered.

4.Add lemon essential oil to the distilled vinegar solution for removing much stubborn grime and marks

The other common spots on the display screens are the marks of coffee and soda spills. Their sticky nature spills make your screens feel grumpy. Remove these stubborn stains by adding lemon essential oil to the diluted vinegar solution. Use a clean microfiber fabric to wipe the screen. Apply some midget force on the stains to make the screen spotless.

5.Always use a microfiber fabric or smooth cotton instead of paper towels while wiping the display screens. Paper towels can leave scratches occasionally.

The screens of computers & laptops are made up of delicate glass. Paper towels have a rugged texture, which can leave the scratches on surfaces. Thus, use a microfibre fabric or a smooth cotton cloth while wiping the screens.

Pro tip: Never spray the cleaning mixture directly on the screen. Always dip the fabric in the solution for cleaning purposes. Ensure none of the liquid is passed into the corners of the gadget to avoid potential damage.
