Clean Your Flat Screen HDTV Naturally
Whether used for family bonding time, or for background noise, we find that most TVs are drastically overlooked during regular cleanings. Perhaps the dirt and finger prints are simply forgotten once your favorite show is on, or because when it comes down to it.. electronics these days are scary. Although technology is complex and complicated, cleaning isn’t. In fact, cleaning your flat screen HDTV is one of the easiest household items to clean. It doesn’t matter if you have a plasma, LED, LCD, you name it this cleaning tip will come in handy.
What you’ll need: non carbonated, filtered water + 2 pristine, soft glass cleaning cloths + no fear
Always makes sure to read the manufacture’s guide for your flat screen HDTV before using any type of product on it, even if it is just water. Before you begin wiping away, it’s extremely important to check that both of your glass cloths are absolutely pristine. Double check that there is no product or particles on the cloth, and then check again. The easiest way to damage your TV is by dragging little specks of dirt across the screen.
- Spritz your pristine glass cloth with your non carbonated, filtered water – the less amount of water the better.
- Begin at one edge of your flat screen, and work your way over in a straight line to the other side. Do NOT wipe in circles.
- Complete this process using the same cloth from top to bottom, always wiping across the television in a straight line.
- Once you’ve gone over the entire flat screen HDTV, grab the other clean glass cloth and repeat the process to dry your flat screen HDTV - this time without any water.
- The last step is to go over the edges/trim of your television. Use the wet glass cloth to wipe away all dirt and finger prints, followed by the dry glass cloth to shine.
The rule of thumb when cleaning: To control product, always spray the cloth; never directly on an item or surface.
Although many flat screen HDTV manufacturers sell specialty cleaning products for their specific electronics, it isn’t necessarily the only product that can be used when cleaning. The best advice that we can give: always read the guidelines for your product’s warranty before taking on cleaning tasks.
