Tips For Cleaning Your Laptop Screen

Your laptop takes a lot of abuse. You take it to work, to coffee shops, and to school. As a result, your laptop screen might be smeared with streaks and dust particles. In order to make sure that you are able to see through your screen clearly, you are going to need to take action. Here are some tips for keeping your laptop screen clean.

1. Wipe It Down With a Microfiber Cloth

The first thing that you are going to want to do is purchase a microfiber cloth at an electronics store, online, or at a hardware store. This microfiber cloth will pick up dirt easily without smearing it all over your laptop screen. It is also soft enough to clean your laptop screen without scratching it. To clean with the microfiber cloth, start in one corner of the laptop screen and start moving in small circles down the side of the screen, and then across. This is an important preliminary step that will allow you to pick up dirt before it is able to scratch your laptop. Try to do this whenever you start using your laptop or whenever you stop using your laptop for the day. 

2. Store the Microfiber Cloth In Your Laptop Itself

Next, you are going to want to make sure that instead of balling up the cloth and shoving it in your laptop case or backpack, you are going to want to lay the cloth so that it is flat against the keys and then close your laptop on top of the cloth. By doing this, you can prevent the oil from your hands, which inevitably gets on the keys, to get on your screen when your laptop is closed. Doing this is helpful because it will allow you to avoid staining your screen with the oil on your hands.

3. Use a Spray Cleaner for Tough Stains

There are special cleaners that are designed to clean your laptop screen without damaging it. If you have tough stains on your screen that you can't get rid of simply by wiping your screen down with a little bit of water, then you need to purchase this special cleaner. You can use it by simply spraying a light layer over your laptop screen and then using the microfiber cloth to wipe down your screen again in small circles.
