    Question Screen Cleaners?

    I have the new Starvision Pixelon TouchScreen and I want to know what I can clean the screen with. It has a USB TouchScreen, but I cannot tell for sure if it is plastic or glass material. I think it is glass though.

    Will Windex work? Will it ruin it if it is plastic (It doesn't affect window tint)?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd just use a damp cloth and mild detergent mate (Not dish washing liquid though!)

    Sun Glass Hut

    There is a store called sunglass hut... they sell microfiber clothes... and this none amonia based cleaner... it works amazing on sunglasses... and greasey finger prints.. I'm using it on my Lillyput with no issues what so ever... and the fiber clothes are also great on finger prints, and droool people leave on the cars when they are looking at them....

    Alcohol

    I just use microfiber cloth to get rid of dust and isopropyl alcohol to clean off fingerprints.

    Yes - very cheap

    Isopropyl alcohol works great on glass or plastic screens. I have used it on resistive type touchscreens and regular monitors without any problems. I don't have a lilli though. I found out about it from an engineer at LG who works with plasma and lcd screens and that's what he uses.

    OK, I will get some Isopropyl - I already have several MF clothes, although it might not hurt to get one just for this use..

    What to use to repel dust after it's clean? :\

    Yea, the microfiber cloths are MAD important. Cause these screen scratch easily, and make sure the cloth is already somewhat dampened.

    Two, for cleaner, don't use Windex on the Displays or Tint. Thats cause the Amonia agent reacts with tint materials and turns them purple (supposibly....) and it will also destroy an Anti-glare coating you may or may not have on the display.

    Isopropyl, haven't done it myself, sounds good, gonna try that out myself.
