How to Clean a TV Screen

One cleaning task people frequently ask me about is how to clean a TV Screen. Here’s what I recommend.

What you need

I use this high-quality Electronics Cloth from E-cloth. If you have a very large TV and/or additional personal electronics such as phones, tablets, or e-readers, I recommend purchasing several. Once you find out how amazing these little cloths are, you will want one for each item or perhaps one in each room of your house.

What to do

  • Use the cloth dry to remove loose dust.
  • Dampen a corner of the cloth and wipe over the screen.
  • Dry with the dry portion of the cloth.
  • If your screen is very large or has gooey fingerprints on it, you will want at least two cloths: one wet, one dry.

How to Care for your Electronics Cloth

Most of the time, just rinsing the cloth in warm water and hanging it to dry will keep it fresh and clean. The cloth can be washed with a small amount of laundry detergent and rinsed well. It can be hung or tumbled dry.

Do not use fabric softener because it will weaken the performance of the cloth. If you accidentally use fabric softener, wash the cloth again in hot water without detergent. The cloth can be boiled periodically to perk it up. Do not use bleach as it will damage the cloth.

  1. This is a really useful article – my husband pointed out today when the light shone on our TV that it is absolutely covered in sticky baby handprints! I’ll definitely try the e-cloths for cleaning the screen. I see you recommend having two cloths in this situation – do I use the wet one all over the TV screen and then dry it or would you suggest cleaning the TV in sections?

    1. Sticky baby handprints are the very best of all! I have a friend who refused to clean her mirrored closet doors because a toddler had left hand-prints and it made her happy to see them. I would suggest cleaning in sections. Drying the glass thoroughly with the cloth will keep it from streaking whereas if it dries on its own, it is likely to streak.
