Cleaning CRT screens

G'day,

What should I use to clean my CRT screen? I had some old wipes specifically for this task before but I used them up and I tried looking for them but I couldn't find them. Everything seem to be for LCD screens these days. Any tips?

Thanks.

Anything that doesn't leave marks and streaks.

Windex, metho, hot breath, a damp cloth, vinegar, a lemon, a ninja, the sweat of a thousand children.

A gentle cloth will be the best medium to use, as anything paper based (Tissues, napkins etc) leave behind bits of fluff.

Be careful of the anti-glare coating on your CRT. Some solvent cleaners might damage it. Maybe Officeworks have some cleaner products in stock, such as alcohol wipes.

Alcohol eh?

Maybe I'll try some alcohol with a lint-free cloth.

Thanks.

I think i posted this in another thread.

The cloths that people use to clean their glasses is perfect to wipe away dust etc due to non scratch very fine and lint free.

If you own a pair of oakleys then use that funky little bag that comes with it.

Or just go to OPSM and ask them about getting a cloth.

cheers

edit - soz I read it backwards :P you got a crt not an lcd. Yeah any standard non streak glass cleaner should work. Just make sure you dont let it run down into the casing etc.

If it's a good quality screen then do not get alcohol any where near it. How i used to clean my crt's was:
-Turn it off
-Get a good 2x quantities of paper towel or toilet paper [the good stuff]
-Dampen one with hot water
-Run the damp one over the screen first
-Buff the water off with the second.
-Repeat process on any tough spots that didn't come of completely.

cheers

Microfibre cloth, excellent for dust!
Also can use on LCD laptop screens.

I tried the alcohol + lint-free cloth and that didn't really work.

Then I tried warm water + toilet paper as was suggested, but it left lint on the screen I guess.

Then I just used a lint-free cloth and warm water which seemed to give the best result, although it's far from perfect.

I would be interested in getting some more of those wipes I used to have...
