    What Do You Clean Your TV With? :-)

    Daft question maybe......but we have had a new TV (LCD) in black and I have dusted it twice a day since saturday and I can practically turn round and its covered again! Do any of you use a special cleaner/wipes to keep the dust at bay? The last TV was a CRT silver one and I could get away without dusting for ages but its the shiny black surround on this one that is driving me mad!

    we got a special cloth with ours, its similar to a microfibre one, so maybe try one of those

    A baby wipe:oops:

    tried babywipes but as soon as it dries the static attracts dust like a magnet! Not helped by laminate floors, dogs and kids!

    You need either a microfibre cloth or pop into curry's or the like and pick up a pack of TFT wipes

    I find that just urinating on it seems to do the trick. The warmth of the urine is just as good as the warm water from the tap.

    I then use a pair of undercrackers to wipe up the resultant fluid before my TV starts to smell like a tramps frontal area.

    Also, wee is free

    Is it a gloss or matt finish?

    i bought some proper lcd screen cleaner from asda, it was about a fiver but lasts ages and you can use it to clean your computer or laptops screen too! the cleaner is a phillips one

    Got exactly the same problem with my Samsung - laminate flooring & having a dog definitely doesn't help matters :-(

    It wears off after a few weeks bits (well, at least it did on my two), but as above, a damp cloth then a microfibre cloth normally does the trick

    thanks everyone.......I will have a look for the cleaner and the lcd cloths this week

    You could also try one of those tumble dryer sheets.

    They're supposed to be anti static

    As I have said before;

    I have tried most of the LCD cloths and Cleaners, none of them work as well as a damp soft cloth followed by a dry microfibre cloth.

    They leave no smears whatsoever.;-)

    Also to buff out scratches i use poo.

    I think it's inevitable Bitsey. It's the shiny + black that shows the dust more. I do a daily wipe ( or so!!) over with a damp cloth and a quick dry with white kitchen towel.

    Do try the Spontex, no need for polish or anything and the dust is attracted to the cloth and not just moved around so it floats back on to the telly

    I tend to use socks.

    Damp leather picks up the dog hairs as well

    Supply your sons with some tissues. Saves all the fuss cleaning it.

    I have used a damp cloth and then a dry one to buff and so far it seems to have stayed dust free.......we shall see

    I.....Er....... I mean my wife uses these pledge dustershttp://www.sainsburys.com/media/images/products/ASCJ001/5000204884982_ASCJ001_2_Spec2_v1_m56577569833600098.jpg

    i have mine on the wall, I don't think mine gets that dusty there

    How about an earthing strap or chain, like you used to see hanging off the bumpers of Morris Marinas and Chrysler Alpines etc in the 1980's, would discharge the static in a flash......look cool too, like go faster stripes :-D
