    Recommend Me a Screen Cleaner

    Something that doesn't *&*@!" smear! Our screens are a mess and the stuff we use just leaves a smeared godawful mess when it dries.

    Thanks!

    We use Mr Muscles for glass and one of those magic cloths for putting on and one for wiping off, found it to be absolutely brilliant but then we do have the hard screens which help.

    Never tried it on a soft TFT screen before so would try it first.

    I got a spray bottle of LCD/Plasma screen cleaner for £1.79 from B&M. It also came with a microfibre cloth. Works a treat and the cloth stops the smears.

    KFC Wipes always worked for me, much better than many of the "specialist" ones you get.

    @nephilim

    So you're saying that the KFC was finger licking good, which free's up the need for using the wipes for other things ( there original intended purpose ) lol

    ^ That. Usually in a 50/50 mix with distilled water.

    Polish off with cotton wool pads / fleece cloth.

    +1 I've always found that to be good.

    You can buy IPA from CPC as well if you don't have a science department or they wont give you any! PPC104 - PRO POWER - IPA SOLVENT, 1 LITRE TIN | CPC

    It's also generally pretty useful stuff to have around for cleaning electronics.

    Just to be clear, this is Isopropyl Alcohol we're talking about not India Pale Ale!!

    We use Wilko window cleaner1 and a soft cloth. We had a tub of popup screen tissues, but they were dried out. A quick squirt of the window cleaner and they worked fine, but we didn't get any more when they ran out.

    1. Other window cleaners are available; Wilkos is the closest place we can buy it.

    Or if you can buy from ebay, I just bought one of these:

    Isopropanol Isopropyl Alcohol IPA 99.9% Pure 5 litres 5L 5000ml OVERNIGHT | eBay

    and one of these for dispense:

    200ML Pump Dispenser Bottle Nail Art Makeup Alcohol Cleanser Liquid | eBay

    KFC wipes? roflao how long would it take to clean an IWB with one of those tiny things.
