Removing Furniture Polish from a LCD Screen

Category Electronics

I have an LCD television and my wife has used furniture polish on it to clean the screen. This has left a cloudy film on it which I have tried to remove but it hasn't worked!

I would try some plain old rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth. Just make sure it isn't dripping wet when you try it. However, being unfamiliar with LCD TV's this may not be an option. Just a suggestion.

I would get the stuff they sell to clean LCD computer screens.

I have exactly the same problem. I returned from holiday to find out that my fianceé had thoughtfully (but dim-wittedly) cleaned my brand new LCD TV with furniture polish! Genius! If either of these two methods work for you Roland, please contact me and let me know asap. Thanks, Pete, Leeds.

I have a LCD wide screeen TV and I had no luck with the commercial LCD cleaners. There were all sorts of streaks all over it. I used regular old rubbing alcohol with a very soft microfiber cloth (an eyeglass cleaning cloth would also work well) and it looks brand new.

I would try to do a corner and see if it will remove the polish residue. I think that it is usually wax based so I bet it will work great, but you might have to do it a few times to get everything up. The first couple times might smear around more and look even worse.

I would try a Mr. Clean eraser, it works for crayons also!
