Turn everything off – Before you start cleaning, make sure that you have turned the TV off. Never clean the TV while it’s still on still you might mess with the pixels. When TV is turned off, you can also easily inspect the dust. dirt, and grime on its flat-screen better.

Wipe the screen gently – Use the microfiber cloth to wipe the screen, make sure that the cloth is soft enough so you won’t scratch its surface. Wipe the screen from the top to bottom direction in a circular motion.

Keep in mind to not press the microfiber too hard since it won’t clean the dirt and dust. A gentle wipe will remove them better. Also, never use paper towels or toilet paper since they can scratch the screen and leave lint around.

If with this step alone your LED already looks shiny, you don’t have to continue to the next step.

Use cleaning solution – If you still see some stains on the screen after dry-wiping the screen with a microfiber cloth, you need to use a cleaning solution. Prepare another clean microfiber cloth and lightly spray the cleaning solution on it. Wipe the screen from top to bottom in a circular motion gently.
