It used to be a rare gadget in our homes a few years back but nowadays it’s almost in every room. TVs are becoming as common as light bulbs nows however, despite their increase in number, some Kenyans aren’t still familiar with how they should be handled.
On social media, Kenyans recently tried to share simple ways you can clean your TV screen without damaging it.
TVs are not the same, let’s start there.
Some are screens made of thick glass, especially with older models like tube TVs. Others are made of more fragile materials, which can easily be damaged if you clean them the wrong way.
So how exactly do you clean TV screens regardless of their make and type. To avoid damage to your TV while cleaning, only use gentle products.
Never wipe the screen with paper towels, abrasive sponges, or coarsely woven rags, which can cause scratches. Instead, use high-quality, finely woven microfiber cloths to clean TV screens.
Avoid cleaning products that have alcohol or ammonium because they remove antiglare and distort the images.
How to clean the TV screen
What you need: White vinegar, water and two microfiber cloth.
- Turn off your TV
- Dust the TV with a dry Microfiber cloth this includes the frames and other parts.
- Spray some little water on your second cloth and wipe gently. Don’t make the cloth dripping wet. It should be just damp.
- Give it time to dry before switching it on.
- In case the TV has stains, you can mix a tablespoon of white vinegar in a bowl of water and repeat the process.
