Don’t you hate it when the afternoon sun hits your screen just right and it suddenly looks like your beloved NC10 has been caught in a desert sandstorm?
So far I’ve been gently using a lens cloth from Jacobs, designed for (unsurprisingly) cleaning the lenses of cameras.
Eventually I imagine some moisture will have to be introduced into the cleaning process.
Try as one might, it seems that every screen eventually picks up some viscous smudge that resiliently refuses to budge under the gentle pressure of a dust cloth.
Can’t say I’d trust any of those jars of anti-static/LCD screen wipes on my lil’ Sammy; my inner pessimist firmly believes that the contents of those containers is identical to those found in Â£1 shop jars of baby-wipes. The same goes for LCD screen cleaning kits. I can’t help but believe that those little spray-containers with the “LCD Screen Cleaning Fluid” sticker on the side are re-purposed vials of fairy liquid.
On a side-note, I invested in a high quality make-up brush for cleaning off the keyboard and ports etc. I used to use a regular soft-ish paintbrush for my old Laptop, but I desired something a little more delicate for my much adored NC10. It works great, and was well worth the funny look from the Boots cashier…February 18, 2009 at 3:39 pm #184264
I just use a clean microfibre cloth damped with water to clean the screen and compressed air to clean keyboards, etc.February 18, 2009 at 3:55 pm #184257jezMember

Oh just remembered we don’t need to clean our Sammys……the silver nano thingies protect us from all known germs 😉February 18, 2009 at 4:06 pm #184272ParodyMember
I have a laptop cleaning kit I use on it. The kit comes with a very soft brush, a cleaning cloth, and a bottle of “cleaning solution” aka isopropyl alcohol.
Isopropyl Alcohol – the universal electronic cleaner! Except for stuff it trashes. Don’t use it on that. :)February 18, 2009 at 4:22 pm #184259RsaeireMember
I use a micro fibre cloth from 3M which works wonders.February 18, 2009 at 4:52 pm #184275asitmcMember

lol yeah there was quite a long and slightly argumentative thread on this a while back. There is a link to it in the FAQ area of the forum.February 19, 2009 at 12:56 pm #184273Jonny BlondMember
Fiber cloth and glass cleanerFebruary 20, 2009 at 9:56 am #184274Mat-MooMember
I’ve been cleaning my LCD screens with glass cleaner (Windolene) since I got my firt laptop over 10 years ago, and never had a problem. Always do it when the screen is off and cold though, brings them up like new 🙂February 20, 2009 at 10:05 am #184277nons_Member
microfiber cloth + a little bit of distilled water
