Home Made LCD Cleaner?

  1. Jan 7, 2010 #1
    I brought a small bottle of LCD cleaner & its amazing, leaves no streaks or anything behind. But i go through it like water & its a bit pricey.

    I generally read the 2 main ways are:

    Distilled water mixed with white Vinegar.


    Distilled water mixed with 70% Rubbing alcohol, some say 50% But i read rubbing alcohol has lubricants in it that will smudge the screen. So i prob should look for pure isopropyl alcohol.

    Any suggestions? Do you think the second method is ok? I'm pretty fussy with my LCD's.

    Windex also works really well. (It's basically water + alcohol + ammonia.)

    Windex has a little detergent in it. It will streak but is shouldn't be that noticeable for an LCD screen if the final step of cleaning involves a dry and clean microfiber cloth.
