Cleaning OLED TV

Hey guys,

Quick one, I got a TV a few months ago for my 10 year upgrade However, my 2yr old likes to point at the screen alot and as a result, I'm more than regularly trying to clean the screen from finger print smudges.

However, it occured to me, i'm just using a microfiber cloth and elbow grease. Is there any recommended solutions or products for cleaning this screens?

It's a fairly thin screen so kinda paranoid I'll crack it at some point if this keeps up with the force I'm using

Cheer!

Windolene or similar glass cleaner is fine, not a harsh degreaser.

I disagree with this advice, window cleaning products usually have either alcohol or ammonia in them,

I don’t know what brand of TV you have but LG say this about cleaning their OLED screens:

Hope this helps,

Cheers! It's an LG OLED B9 so I'll take this as gospel

Thanks!

I think you're far more likely to do physical damage to a TV by not using a cleaning solution and scrubbing harders than necessary, than you're likely to do by using a light cleaning solution to remove something sticky. Manufacturers can't provide a "whitelist" of chemicals, or account for people pouring gallons of the stuff onto the internal circuitry, so they say to use none.

I generally used 100% IPA and other harsh chemicals to clean screens and other delicate electronics in work (electronics manufacturing) and have never had a single problem with any of them. I obviously can't say that will be true in all circumstances, but you're extremely unlikely to have any issue with a window cleaner.
