Tuesday Tips ~ DIY Computer/TV Screen Cleaner

FROM:  http://www.theprairiehomestead.com/2012/02/diy-computer-and-tv-screen-cleaner.html

Homemade Computer/TV Screen Cleaner
  • 1 part plain white vinegar
  • 1 part distilled water (make sure you use distilled only!)
  • A clean, lint-free cloth. (I like using old, worn-out t-shirts from my rag collection)
Mix the vinegar and water. Store in a labeled container (I use an small canning jar). A spray bottle would also work.
When you are ready to clean your screens, spray a soft, lint-free cloth with the solution, OR dip the cloth into the jar.
DO NOT spray the solution directly on your screen, as it can drip down into places it shouldn’t go.
Gently, wipe the screen with the damp cloth. It may take more than oneapplication, depending on how dirty things are.
Enjoy your shiny clean screen for as long as you can before the flies land on it again or the kiddos attempt more finger art.

A Few Notes:

  1. A 1/2 cup of vinegar and a 1/2 cup of distilled water is a good amount to start with.
  2. You can store this as long as you need to.
  3. Why distilled water? Distilled water is free from minerals which leave smudgy water spots on your screens. If you wash your screens with tap water, you’ll probably end up with a dirtier screen than what you started with.
  4. I use this on our flat screen TV and my laptop. I’ve had no trouble with it. However, please use it at your own risk with your own equipment.
  5. If you have a black kitchen appliances (like me), this solution is a great way to shine them up. (Because of our hard water, wiping things down with regular soapy water leaves lots of spots).
Enjoy those sparkly screens! ;)
