What type of screen?
by Steven Haninger / August 1, 2005 11:44 AM PDT

Is it coated? Do you have any instructions that came with the monitor that might address this? If so, follow those. Most CRTs are glass or coated glass. Regular glass cleaners using a soft cloth without rubbing will usually work fine. Some camera lens cleaners might also be good to take away small fingerprints. Again...soft cloth such as for use on glasses or lenses should be ok. Avoid strong solvents, of course, and stick with mild surfactants where grease and oil are a problem. Maybe some coaching for your daughter might help if she's old enough to understand.

2. A gentle application of parental correction to your daughter.:)

Glass cleaner

Use just about any "glass cleaner" to wipe a glassed monitor. Best, to apply to cloth or rag instead of directly on monitor surface, then wipe. HOWEVER, if you monitor is really a LCD type, don't do this, buy the required special wipes or cleaner for that purpose.
