What is the best way and safest way to clean my HD TV screen?

Any suggestions? Long gone are the days of using furnature polish on a tv the size of a small car!

How do you clean yours?

Screen Wipes? A dry duster? A spray of polish on a duster? A wet sock from the night before after you've just cleaned last night disco dirt and kebab off your favourite white trainers?

You won't get much use out of one from your sunglasses. You can buy a cloth from the supermarket, maybe in the car section.

I dampen one half and use that on the tv then use the dry half.

Don't use chemicals is the best advice. Water has served me well, even getting off grubby toddler paw prints.

Not been here long have you......... :-D:-D

I've been wondering this too, i'm worried about cleaning the outer part of my TV, i have a Panasonic plasma and some people say that some cloths can scratch the shiny surface. Consequently i haven't dusted it, really need to now though!!

Microfibre cloth, well wrung out,
get a multi pack, keep one for lcd screens only, the rest for car windows and house mirrors
and for the poster above, clean the outside just like the screen and you will be fine
dont use any polish after, it goes everywhere

Mine is a Panasonic Plasma and you'll be fine with micro fibre cloth and water. Never put polish near your TV.

I have one microfibre cloth for my tv as well, doesnt get used on anything else and is put in a plastic bag after ive used it. I do use some solution I bought which was about £10 but its lasted about 2 years, and i use it on my monitor and my laptop as well.

Thanks, i knew you had good taste!! :-D

tbh you shouldn't really need to clean a tv a lot anyway, round the edges etc for dust but the actual screen should be fine unless you've got idiots kids touching it etc

I have a Panasonic plasma too and use the supplied cloth, if there are any marks that won't dust off then wet the cloth. Cleans easily and never scratches. Just be carefull what you do use on it as most Panny plasmas have the anti glare coating which you could damage.
