May 2, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

PC monitors are like dirt magnets. They accumulate stains and smudges every minute. That doesn’t mean you have to stay put with your stain tainted monitor however busy you are. Here we have a few tips on how to keep your PC monitor sparkling clean.

Most manufacturers would tell how to wipe your screen in their user’s manual. What we would like to tell you is something more. Before resorting to wipe you monitor clean, there a few things that you shouldn’t do.

You need to stay away from using aerosol sprays or abrasives, hard cloth, fingernails and such. These could end up ruining your screen with scratches.


What you should preferably do is to use dry, soft, lint-free cloth to wipe the dirt off your display.  Also, a mild solution of soap water could be used if you need to.

In case you find the dry cloth you use isn’t helping much, you can resort to using another cloth too dipped in a solution of diluted dish soap and warm water.

Once the first layer of dust goes off, you can dip another cloth in your dish soap solution, wring it out, and gently wipe.

Proceed further by rinsing the soapy cloth, and wiping the screen to remove any soap residue. Now get hold of a dry soft cloth wipe the display again. See the sparkle on your PC monitor now.
