  3. You have some really useful ideas about cleaning a computer screen.

    As you say, there are few things more annoying than trying to work through a mess of smudges and smears on your screen.

    I agree that microfibre cloths are the most effective. I have been using them with a glass spray which I obtained from my optometrist, which seems pretty effective. Do you know of any reason why I should not use that?

    I must confess that I have been spraying the solution directly on to the screen, and I have not been turning off the power, so many thanks for your advice there, and I will not be doing those things in the future!

    Thank you so much for your great advice.

    Chrissie 🙂

    • When it comes to delicate glass surfaces in electronics, it’s advisable to use isopropyl alcohol and not cleaning solutions like glass cleaner. just make sure you put a small bit on the Microfiber cloth and not on the monitor
