Introduction: How to Clean a Laptop Screen With Household Products

Cleaning your laptop screen is easy. As easy as 1-2-3! With no special cleaners!

Step 1: Wet

Materials:
1 clean washcloth/towel
Water Update!: Use bottled water!

Wet the rag in lukewarm-warm water.

Step 2: Wring

Wring out the rag to a point that it is only damp. It should not be dripping.

Step 3: Wipe

Simply wipe the screen and you're done. Any special cleaners you find are really a scam. Don't fall for it!

You can just user a microfiber cloth that some people use to clean their glasses.

You know; It would be better to use a terry towel instead of the rag. Also in place of pure water, try using a mixture of isopropyl alcohol:Distilled Wtaer 1:1 ratio. That'd work best!

You need to use bottle water as when you use tap water, it contains minerals which can sometimes leave patches on the screen and small dots that looked like some sneezed on the screen.

if your trying to avoid water spots you could use filtered water.

Erm, anyone with any sense, knows you dont just use any old rag. Well done for using only water, but really you need to be more careful about what kind of rag is used!

Well, this is a contest:
"If multiple Instructables from multiple users are submitted as answers to the same question, they will all be entered into the contest group. Once the contest closes, we'll pick the Instructable that answers the question best and declare them the winner."
Obviously someone has to enter first ;P
