    Do not use any household cleaning products on the screen. Especially, do not use a common window cleaner (Windex, etc.) or anything with ammonia in it. You shouldn’t even trust the TV screen cleaning kits that are sold for the purpose in electronics stores—we’ve seen reports here of permanent screen damage from faulty kit materials.

    To clean your screen effectively and safely:

    1. Get a bottle of distilled water (supermarket).

    2. Get a clean spray bottle.

    3. Get some lint-free microfiber cloth (Walmart, electronics store, or on-line—use Google)

    4. Turn the set off and let it fully cool down.

    5. Fill the spray bottle with distilled water. GENTLY spray the screen to moisten it. Do not allow water to drip down into the set at the bottom of the screen.

    6. Gently wipe the screen in a circular motion with the cloth until it is clean and dry.

    7. If you need to moisten the screen a second time, spray the cloth rather than the screen.

    If you have a mark on the screen that you can’t remove by repeating the above process several times, get some reagent grade isopropyl alcohol with a purity level of at least 98% (pharmacy). Note: do NOT use common medicinal alcohol, which has a purity level of about 70%. Moisten a clean microfiber cloth with the special alcohol and gently wipe the mark. Repeat as necessary.

    If you cannot remove the mark with the above procedure, it’s probably not going to come off without additional aggressive measures that will permanently damage the screen.
