What do you guys use ? My el cheapo stuff has run out and it's annoying shooting at snot on Arma 3.
Swabs for sterilizing your arm before an injection. Once you have a box of them you'll find many cleaning uses.
Don't you have to be careful of those swabs though?
I thought the alcohol in them can remove small amounts of anti-glare coating (is that still a thing), personally i use one of those cloths mean for cleaning glasses with plain old tap water.
My monitor is fine. I don't use them regularly though. I'm not at it every week with the swabs. When grime builds up on the monitor its about the only thing that will shift it.
Edit: Just to add it leaves zero residue on the screen which is great
I just use a simple spray monitor cleaning fluid with a soft glasses cloth.
I have used window cleaner in the past with no ill effects.
Recently used this and was quite impressed.
Doesn't cut through greasy fingerprints like window cleaner though.
I use water to dampen a piece of tissue paper (not toilet paper, kitchen type paper). Then wipe the screen. After about a week, it's clean. (No, honestly, it may take longer than window cleaner/screen cleaner stuff, but it does give a better finish).
A microfiber cloth works too, but actually seems harder to use than tissue paper. Be careful not to soak the cloth or paper, you want it damp not dripping. Always do the screen when the monitor has been switched off for a little while.
Doubt it'd be great on anything with a touch screen.
I use the spray and cloth for my glasses. if its good enough to help me see its good enough for my screen, and my tablet screen and my phone screen...
+ for Windolene.
Microfiber cloth + distilled water, or 50/50 with household white vinegar.
Avoid alcohol / ammonia based products (Windolene) as they are too abrasive and can damage anti-gloss coatings on matte displays.
Most eyeglass cleaner is isopropyl alcohol based, but it is a very low concentration. The swaps/pads used to clean/sterilize skin before injections is a much higher concentration, typically around 70% or higher. Alcohol is a solvent and as such, in high concentrations may damage the plastic screen, or the anti-glare coating on it. Not all monitors (or TVs) are the same. So if tempted, test it in a small spot in a corner first.
I don't want to risk it myself, so I use lens cleaner and a soft microfiber cloth.
You can pick up glasses wipes from B&M for next to nothing (I think £1 for about 50 off) and they do the job bloody well!
You don't need to buy a special cleaning tools for a screen. just a soft microfiber cloth and water will do. However i doubt using alcohol or other strong solvents on LED screens.
Personally I use a mixture of distilled water and a 'white' vinegar; which I spray from an old cleaning product bottle.
Dirt cheap to make and works a treat.
This stuff and a microfibre cloth - Beats everything with no damage to screen(s) use on my TV's, tablets, phone, everything
For the record, I have tried many many different sure fire recommendations and combinations thereof, and I have never found a solution that doesn't smear on a matt TFT screen
My current tactic is to keep it as clean as possible for as long as possible, then give up
I missed this, made me Lol. <3
