Default Cleaning your screen carefully

Hi Everyone
Ive got a 65" Sony xf9005 which Im really enjoying.
We are undergoing a home refurb and even with the upmost care there's a lot of dust accumulating on the set.
I don't want to damage the screen, but I need to clean it. Ive seen 'tiger cloth' advertised as anti static, would you recommend it or is there a better alternative?

I purchased a product from Amazon called Screen Mom.
Comes with spray and a micro-fiber cloth - highly recommended.

I tried Screen Mom as well as it came highly recommended. But I have a Vizio which I noticed left many streaks on the matte screen. Anyone have any recommendations for cleaning a matte screen?

I don't use any liquid solutions on my screen because, it's not fingerprinted nor soiled from children's hands. Since it's only light household dust, I just use a feather duster to dust the TV screen, and it will look good as new. I usually dust it once a week, along with my routine house cleaning.

Dust regularly. Don't use dusters/cloths which have been treated with anything (ie. Endust, etc.)

If needed, use a high-quality micro fiber cloth + tepid distilled water.

Why not cover your TV while the remodeling is going on ?

Cheers guys, the set has been covered during the day, but as Iíve found out the dust gets everywhere, itís travelled t the other end of the house, so unavoidable.

Iíll try with a dry duster and see how it goes.

+1

Dust once a week with an micro fibre cloth. If needed, use a couple of drops of distilled water on the cloth for stains. Never use any chemical products to clean your TV. Screen Mom is not a good idea, unless you like streaks. Nobody should need anything more than distilled water anyway.

Not to hijack the thread but I’ve had my kid flick milk on my TV screen and I’ve followed all the best instructions out there on how to clean and I’m leFt with a cloud type of Im guessing leftover milk and the distilled water I used. I’ve always been hesitant to use cleaning products but at this point I’m desperate. Those that vouch for screen-mom, have you guys tried heavily soiled or difficult stains on the TV? Thanks !

I've been using Monster ScreenClean for years. I've never tried it on milk, but it does remove soda (cola) quite easily. I've had cans spray a bit on my computer monitor when opening them, on more than one occasion. No matter how dried, it always dissolves it near instantly. I've used it on all my LCD TVs and laptop as well with no noticeable ill effects.
This is the only place that I can find it relatively cheap, as it seems they may have discontinued it in favor of newer products.

I've never actually tried Screen Mom, so I'm not sure how it compares.

If I feel a sneeze coming, I just aim for the screen.

The I grab a sock and wipe very carefully.

Works for me.

Thanks for the reply. I actually have monster cleaner but was told to use it on LCD only and not LED.

I've seen a few spots of beer on my screen after an evening, and thankfully distilled water removed the stains easily. I then have to do a wax on wax off type of thing to remove any "clouds"

I'm guessing the fat in the milk is the problem here.

Good luck and let us know how you get on

Edit: If there's one thing I don't like about Summer time, it's the flies who like to shit on my screen . Bastards. Thankfully the water works for this.

I have a regular LG 60UP7750PSB (LED TV)... the manual says (and I think this applies to all LG TVs) that we should use a dry cloth, never apply water. This doesn't make any sense because we will always have a scenario in which no dry cloth will get rid of a weird persistent smudge.

The problem is, I used tap water and put in a microfiber cloth (this one) for electronics (not too much, just enough to dampen the cloth), with the TV also turned off, and ever since the water stains didn't come off.

I would never have done this if the stains were removable with just a dry cloth.


Watching this video I learned about distilled water as a better alternative, and I'll look for it. Of course we should put in a spray bottle and apply to the cloth and then do the rest mentioned in this video.

I wouldn't try anything else, though, because I'm always suspicious of any dish detergent because the ingredients vary between manufacturers, and we never know what to expect from applying these to any screen, even tablets and smartphones. I only use a PH-neutral detergent to wash my eyeglasses.

The question is, after what I did, what is the likelihood that I'll be able to remove those water stains? I'd say we can see the spots when the TV is all black under a lamp above, I wonder if trying another go but this time with distilled water would make a difference.

I didn't know this specific TV would remind me I applied the cloth in all those locations from its glass, I was hoping these would come off after it dried. I also tried another exact cloth but this time dried, and this didn't change anything. And I didn't rub hard.
