First, turn off your TV – it’s safe to have the TV plugged in, but once the screen is off you can see the state of cleanliness or dirtiness you’re working with.

You’ll need a microfiber cloth – these are the ultra-soft cloths typically sold with a pair of sunglasses.

You can order a pack of microfiber towels cheaply from Amazon – only $7 for a pack of six.

Use the microfiber cloth to gently dust the surface and edges of your screen.

Very small amounts of distilled water can safely be applied to a flat screen.

ZDNet notes that distilled water has “removed the contaminants and minerals found in most places’ tap water and prevents any cloudiness or residue from remaining on your display after cleaning.”

Lightly dampen your microfiber cloth – a new one, not the one you used to dry run – and place it on your screen with minimal pressure.

Do not use additional cleaning chemicals.

For stains that just won’t clean, add a drop — literally a drop — of dish soap to your water supply.

Note that if water spills over your screen, you’ve used way too much.

Remember that TV screens are more sensitive than phone screens, which are designed to be tapped and felt pressure.

Clean your TV regularly to keep it in good condition for years of use or later resale.
