Our forum tidings topic this week covers the art of LCD cleaning, a discussion about which was sparked by gerbil regular Welch in our General Hardware forum earlier this week. In his thread, Welch asked for the best method to get finger smudges off an LCD without damaging the panel or leaving some kind of smear or haze. Other forum dwellers have given a variety of suggestions, some simple—just warm water and a damp cloth—and others seemingly dangerous—ultra-fine sandpaper. Some suggest using isopropyl alcohol, too, while others say it damages panels.
What's your weapon of choice when it comes to LCD monitor cleaning? Do you have a microfiber cloth with a special solution sitting near your desk or do you think an old t-shirt and some elbow grease is good enough? Feel free to share your thoughts on the subject by hitting Welch's thread. Don't forget to register a forum account first if you don't already have one.
