Default Cannot get fingerprints off of my Mits 57731!

Hi all,

Well I guess it was inevitable but one of my crumb-snatchers left some fingerprints on my TV and I cannot for the life of me get them off. I've of course tried using a damp cloth, but I've also used some iKlear screen cleaner but even though it has always worked wonders on my computers it aint helping on my TV.

Any recommendations? I'm strongly considering using a half and half mixture of water and Windex, but putting Windex on my TV gives me the hibie-jibies.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Did they have something on thier fingers? grease or something. What happens when you try to clean them do they smear or just stay the same?

Googled and found this
* LCD Screen Cleaning Tips *

Most experts suggest you can use a cleaning solution of 50% distilled water and 50% isopropyl (rubbing alcohol). You should use a soft cloth such as an old cotton T-shirt or handkerchief. Don't use paper towels, tissues, or ordinary dish cloths, as harsh cloths may damage the soft surface of an LCD screen.

Shut down any devices before cleaning them. Inspect the screen very carefully to take note of any special areas that have to be cleaned. Don't spray any cleaning solution directly onto the screen but rather dampen your large cleaning cloth with your solution and apply very gentle pressure, cleaning the display in a circular motion.

Don't apply any hard pressure or touch the screen with your fingertips. It has been suggested you think of the screen as a smooth baby's bottom and give it the same kind of care as you would give an enfant's delicate skin.

Make sure you let the screen thoroughly dry before turning your device back on. You should now have a perfectly cleaned screen ready for your full viewing enjoyment once again.

Word of Caution - you should always check your owner's manual or the manufacturer for the recommended cleaning method for your particular LCD TV or Laptop Screen.

Also this is posted in a yahoo question & anwsers

Monster cable makes a product for lcd and plasma screens.

It comes with spray bottle cleaner and cloth and does not scratch the screen or border of the screen. I've used it a dozen of times and it does a good job of removing fingerprints, dust, etc.

Isopropyl alcohol can damage a projection screen, DO NOT use it. Call customer support and ask for their help.

Distilled water and a microfiber cloth.

Rubbing alcohol often has lanolin and other additives in in.

Thanks for all the replies...

There must have been something on her fingers cause it just won't go away, it doesn't smudge or anything, just stays there.

I'm assuming the iKlear I used is much like that Monster Cable stuff and others on the market. Like I said I knew I was up against something strong when the iKlear didn't remove it, because the iKlear has never let me down on any of my computers, and once was even able to take off permanent marker from an LCD screen (after 3-4 tries over a period of a week, but still)

Don't know what to do, I guess I can try the Monster Cable stuff, but I'm very leery of using any chemicals, even if it is diluted in 50% water.

Thanks again.

you can go to WalMart and buy a Philips LCD screen cleaning kit, it runs about $10.00 and works great. It comes with cleaning solution and a special anti static cloth that is lint free.
