How To Clean Your TV Using Things You Already Have on Hand

Some cleaning tasks demand to be done as soon as you notice them, for no reason other than that you can’t un-see what’s not clean. For instance, when I notice that there are “leftovers” from my cats sneezing while looking out the window, I can’t just leave it. And when I see smudges on the inky black screen of my TV, it’s hard to leave those there, too. 

You may hesitate to clean your TV because you’re not sure you know what to use. Don’t flat screen TVs need to be cleaned with certain cleaners, and even a special rag?

Well, sort of. While old school televisions were made with glass screens that could be cleaned with anything that made glass streak-free, using harsh chemicals on LCD screens can cause permanent damage because they’re made from a special kind of flexible plastic. Plasma TV screens, though they’re made of glass, are also delicate. Using a scratchy rag or even a paper towel can also scratch these screens.

But you don’t need a specialty cleaner. You can clean your flat screen TV, whatever kind you have, with things you probably already have at home. 

How to Clean A TV Screen

What You’ll Need

  • White vinegar 
  • Distilled water
  • Microfiber cloths (2)
  • Bowl



  • We used three microfiber cloths here to show the three main stages, but you really just need two. Use the first one to dust the screen, then rinse it and wring it out and use that same one to dip into the solution. Then, just used a second one to buff and dry the screen at the end.
