DIY Screen Cleaner for Your IPad, Laptop, or TV

36,472 Views
Kids = fingerprints. It's an undeniable fact of life. But it's easy to clean fingerprints off your laptop, iPad, iPhone, or TV with this DIY Screen Cleaner!
All you need is rubbing alcohol, distilled water, and an empty spray bottle. Be sure to use distilled water, since tap water and bottled water contain all sorts of minerals and chemicals that could damage the screen.
Determine how much liquid your spray bottle contains, and fill it with half rubbing alcohol and half distilled water. That's it!
Here’s the important part: spray the cleaner onto a clean cloth and then wipe the screen. Don’t spray on the device because liquid and electronics don’t mix!

    Does it have to be distilled water?

      @Tina Wallace The distilled water will not have minerals to make deposits on your electronics. Costs me less than $2 for a gallon. Oh, and I only use a microfiber cloth as it does not shed.

    If water is boiled, my understanding that it is then - ' distilled' . not sure but that has always been my thought.

      @Marie Wilson Don't use it on eyeglasses--the alcohol can ruin any coatings on the lenses. A drop of liquid soap and hot water will work just fine.

    If you have a dehumidifier the water you dump is distilled
