How to clean a laptop screen?

It is very important to keep your laptop screen clean at all times. When dust and dirt accumulate on your laptop screen, it can look very ugly and spoil the viewing experience.

You can clean the screen easily at home by using a few simple household materials. All you need is some cleaning liquid and a microfiber cloth.

The first step to cleaning your laptop screen is to take the laptop, remove the battery, and clean the screen.

Remove the battery first, as batteries are also a source of dirt and dust.

Make sure that the laptop is turned off and unplug it from the power socket.

Use a soft cloth to clean the laptop screen. Use the cleaning solution sparingly as too much liquid can hinder the cleaning.

Do not get any liquid in other areas such as the keyboard and touchpad. Also, make sure that there are no liquids in the laptop.

Let the laptop dry for 30 minutes. Put the battery back in place and turn it on.

If your laptop is still under warranty, you should clean it at the service center. The technicians there have special tools and liquids that are much more effective.
