Me again!

Lets jump into the best methods on how to clean a computer screen. This is something I’ve always been a bit wary of since it’s different for LCD and non-LCD screens. Compounding this, I could never remember which method I needed for which type of screen.

So I wanted to write this guide to clear it up once and for all for everyone… But mainly for myself.

Before we jump in, I also wrote this post on my website in case you prefer reading over there.


So why is this important? Why do I need to clean my monitor? How do I clean my monitor???

Calm, those questions will all be answered and you are in the right place. First of all, you need to clean your computer screen for obvious reasons. It’ll get dirty and no one wants to create or consume content on that.

I used to work in an office and some of the machines we would get back from employees were just absolutely disgusting. I’m talking covered in skin flakes, dandruff and scratches everywhere. This is especially important on laptops since any dirt on the screen has the potential to scratch it once the lid has been closed.
