In the beginning,  I got my laptop screen dirty by the dust and I did internet surfing related to this topic to find out the solution and I found articles telling a few different things but in a dispersed type of information.

So I thought to compile up all the information here for my lovely readers so that you may not have to go to another page to get confused in different types of information.

So here we go;

Using Dry microfiber cloth

In order to clean your laptops touch screen, first of all, try using the dry and clean microfiber cloth. Now you will be asking where to get this cloth.

So let me tell you that when you buy a pair of glasses than a little curtain is given to you along with them, that piece of smooth cloth is called as a microfiber cloth.

The reason to use this cloth is that the touch screens are always very sensitive and first of all they needed to be clean with a dry and smooth clean cloth.

So by using the microfiber cloth make your laptop’s touchscreen clean by gently taking the cloth backward and forward on your laptop screen and also at the corners to remove out every single dust particle.

If you don’t wear glasses or you do not have a glasses box of anybody else in your house then you can easily purchase this cloth from glasses shop or any shop having related products like cleaner, shiner or computer shop, etc. You can easily get this microfiber cloth from the market. This aso helps to get rid of cigaretter smell from the laptop.

Use shiner/ cleaner

Now the next thing is to use any of the shiner or cleaner available in your home or otherwise soak a corner of the curtain or soft cloth in water and drain them completely and then clean your laptop touch screen with it.

You can make the screen clean by using the eyeglass cleaner even. Spray once or twice the eyeglass spray on the soft cloth or on the microfiber cloth to damp it but not wet completely.

Use this to clean each and every corner of your laptop’s touchscreen to make it shine more, this will also remove any greasiness or oil from it and make it clean completely.

Don’t spray directly on the touchscreen ever by mistake because this kind of technology is sensitive and is not waterproof, if better to use shiner or cleaner damped cloth than water damp and then after that dry the screen with another dry soft cloth piece if necessary.

Cleaning kits for Laptop screen 

If you are extraordinarily concerned about your laptop touchscreen than you can also buy the touch screen whole cleaning kit from the market easily.

  • You should always use glass cleaner or shiner to clean the sticky and dirty screen, many people use alcohol or vinegar that ruins the touch screens, so don’t do this mistake ever. Use of alcohol, vinegar or any other chemical does not make the screen clean and many people misunderstand it and unconsciously harm their own lovely laptop and then regret it. Glass cleaner is excellent to use and you can easily make the screen shine by it
  • Don’t use the usual normal rough cloth or any hard-bristled toothbrush because by doing this mistake, although you will get the clean and clear screen after that you will clearly see the rashes or scratchy lines on the touch screen of your laptop. So always use soft wipes, towel or the microfiber cloth, whichever is available to you as these soft curtains, wipes and microfiber cloth are best to use and you can easily buy it from any technology, computer, and the glasses shops.
  • Don’t ever make a mistake to spray the cleaner directly on the screen as this kind of technologies like laptops and other things as they are not liquid proved, so there are chances that cleaner liquid might enter inside or cause disturbance to the touchscreen. So always take care of this thing
  • Don’t try to clean your laptop touch screen by keeping it on. Make sure that that the touch screen is off and then you can easily clean it.
  • Don’t rub your screen harder and try not to apply the pressure on the screen, do the cleaning in a gentle way.
  • Don’t allow the unwashed, oily or any kind of dirt polluted hands to handle the touch screen. Always wash your hands and properly dry them too before using the touchscreen

Final words

Firstly when I got my new laptop, I was very much concerned about it as I have told you already and everybody is definitely concerned about their new things as so was I and laptop is one of the main things in my life that I love the most. I am always interested to experience new and amazing laptops either gaming or working laptops.

When I bought my first laptop I always took great care for its safe handling and cleaning etc as it was the most precious thing for me in my life. But as time passed, gradually I started paying not much attention to it and kept using it by unwashed hands that make my laptop’s screen so much dirty and blur to use.

After that I read all the information from the internet, I didn’t find all the info immediately. I kept reading all the stuff related to this and I am glad that I didn’t apply my own flop idea of cleaning the screen by spraying alcohol on it.

It’s funny but fortunately, I didn’t make this mistake and if found that this kind of silly misuses and mistakes are already done by many people.

So I researched all the correct information, applied it myself and thought that I would write an article related to this so that you guys might get the proper knowledge and help from only a  single source and that is luckily this fantastic page.

I have also experienced taking a cleaning kit but both microfiber cloth and damp cloth do the same as the cleaning wipes do. Both are good to use and depend upon you that which cleaning stuff is available to you easily and conveniently and that’s it.

Best of luck.
