    :eek: I was told that the display on a laptop is very fragil, and that you should never, NEVER touch it with anything. What is a safe way of cleaning the TFT display? I work in a pretty dusty environment and the TFT is developing a "crust" which I want to remove before it gets any worse. Any ideas out there?

    A soft damp (not dripping) cloth with a touth of mild washing up liquid. The screen is soft plastic so you must be careful not to scratch it.

    Do NOT use soap though. Some soaps can be a bit too harsh. Make sure you're using DETERGENT. It works as a mild lubricant you see...

    :) Thank you guys. I can now see my screen a lot better. AND I don't have a nagging feeling at the back of my mind that someday I won't be able to see it at all. I used sergical steril pads with some water and it worked fine, I didn't have to decide if "JOY" dishwarshing stuff is soap or detergent. :D

    Many of the commercial cleaners are a 50/50 solution of alcohol and water. You can buy 99% alcohol at your local drug store for peanuts.
