Cleaning of laptop screens

#1
I have just walked into the lounge to find my 3 yr old 'helping' daddy.
His idea of helping?
Using the wifes elvive 'anti frizz leave in conditioner to clean my macbook screen. :x

The screen is now silky smooth and shiny, with no frizz!
however it is also quite smeared.

Any thoughts as to what to use to remove said gunk?

I've always used a dab of warm water with a soft cloth or cotton ball, then gone over the screen again with a dry soft cloth and repeated if needed.

Can't say I've had to remove anti-frizz conditioner though, but give it a shot

Inventive with the excuses eh?

How about grabbing the child's hair and using its face to clean the screen, as a way of discouraging such helpfulness in the future?



Otherwise I normally use the packets of wipes you can buy in the supermarket to clean mine (they're meant for cleaning reading glasses) - think it's about £1.50 for a little box of them.

Yep, it'll take more than wet wipes or windolene to get rid of that stuff once it has dried in (or so I've been told :) )

Cheers for the 'advice' guys

It seems to have come off ok with some mild washing up stuff, very sparingly.

I would just like to point out (smudge) that the helping daddy comment came from said 3yr old
me- "whatareyoudoinggetawayfromthatfeckincomputer"
him- 'I help daddy wash computer'
me- spend 5 mins explaining why computers dont need washing, hopefully he gets the idea

Grasp the childs head firmly, and use their face to clean the screen.... just a thought.

Hit child in face with Mac must be hard enough to destroy Mac then claim on insurance as accidental damage, glad I could help with a technical computer question at last.
