The other day, I caught a glimpse of my computer screen and couldn’t believe how dirty it was! I could barely make out the image underneath all the smudges and fingerprints. I knew that I could buy a product to clean my screen with, but I was also pretty sure I could make my own that would be much cheaper. I was right! It worked so well and was so easy to put together, I just had to share it with you. :-)
DIY Screen Cleaner
A microfiber cloth is one of my all-time favorite cleaning tools, and can do quite a bit of cleaning on its own! Start by wiping the screen with just the cloth to remove any bigger messes, lint, or oily residue.
Next, make your spray by combining equal parts of white vinegar and distilled water. You want to use distilled water because tap water contains minerals that will leave a residue on your screen.
Instead of spraying your cleaner directly onto the screen, lightly spray the cloth and then use it to wipe the screen clean. This way, the spray can’t leak around the edges or penetrate any delicate areas – much safer!
You won’t need to use very much spray, because the vinegar cuts through the smudges so easily! I was amazed at how well this worked!
You can also use this method to clean your cell phone, just remember to spray the cloth and not your phone!
While I was on a roll, I decided to clean the TV screen as well. It definitely needed it! Make sure the TV is turned off, don’t spray the screen directly, and don’t press hard when wiping.
Microfiber cloths and vinegar are both gentle cleaners – so don’t substitute any other materials here!
Enjoy those clean screens!
