Make your own screen-cleaning spray
-These Storebots screen cleaning solutions have got to be one of the biggest ripoffs out there.
What you're paying for is basically glorified water.
So instead of forking over a $10-$20 on one of these things, I'll show you how to make it yourself with things you probably have at home.
So, grab a misting spray bottle like this one from the Dollar
Store and fill it up with one part 70% Isopropyl Alcohol, I don't have a funnel so I made my own by using some glossy paper here and I'll [unk] it fill this thing up halfway with alcohol.
Okay, that's about half.
Now I'll fill up the rest with distilled water.
Don't use tap water here because it has minerals that will leave a residue on your screen.
the cut back on, give it a nice shake and that's it, really.
That's all that you're paying for when you buy an LCD cleaner from the store.
Some people suggest using vinegar as a screen cleaner but I don't recommend it.
First of all, it smells awful but more importantly your screen will dry much faster with this alcohol solution.
Now, to clean your screen, grab a micro-fiber cloth, give one to two sprays and then with a little elbow grease
your screen will be good as new.
And you can use this cleaner basically anywhere to clean glass, your TV and even your keyboard and mouse.
