Manufacturers of LCD and LED TVs are unanimous on the method of cleaning their devices: the best way to remove dust and light dirt from your TV without causing damage is to use only a dry, soft cloth, which should be gently rubbed over the screen. . Some brands provide a cloth suitable for cleaning along with the device. For the corners, you can use a cotton swab.

If you come across any kind of dirt that is having a hard time getting off the screen, don’t rub the cloth harder, as this can damage the surface and impair the display of images. In this case, you can spray the cloth with clean water and rub it on the screen with gentle movements, always following the same direction (from right to left, for example).

Among the main TV manufacturers (Samsung, Phillips, Philco, Sony and LG), most recommend not using any type of cleaning product on the screen of the device, especially abrasive ones. That means you shouldn’t even use the popular white vinegar or window cleaner.

The exception to the rule is the manufacturer LG: according to the manual of one of its models, you can apply a little neutral detergent to the cloth to clean the screen. WARNING: If you have an LG TV, always check your TV manual before using detergent to clean the glass, as instructions may vary by model.

Other precautions when cleaning the TV screen

An important tip is that you should never apply water or detergent directly to the screen, as they could leak into the device and damage its internal components or even cause a fire. Likewise, never use a soaked cloth, as the liquid may run down the edges of the screen.

Also, remember that we must not force a persistent dirt with the cloth, nails or other object, as this can dent or scratch the screen, resulting in distortions in the image. Be patient and follow only with the cloth dampened in water.

It doesn’t hurt to reinforce that, before cleaning, your device must be unplugged from the socket to avoid the risk of electric shock.
