<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>To clean the LCD:
1. Turn off the computer or display. You may need to turn off the computer in order to turn off some Apple displays.
2. Dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth or paper with water only.
3. Wipe the screen. Do not spray liquid directly on the screen.
You may also use a mild glass cleaner that contains no alcohol or ammonia. Most office supply stores sell cleaning kits specifically designed for this purpose.
While there are many commercial products available that will work without damaging the plastics, Apple has tested a product called Klear Screen made by Meridrew Enterprises (http://www.klearscreen.com) and found it does not cause any harm to the plastics. This product may not be available worldwide.

>>>I personally have used a slightly damped (water) cloth that one would polish eyeglasses with (<$1), and lightly GLIDE it across the screen where whatever grit has accumulated, maybe do some VERY LIGHT circle motions where splotches have arisen. Afterwards, I'd use another fine cloth and also GLIDE it across the screen with the ABSOLUTE LIGHTEST pressure humanly possible -- don't want to leave any water marks, oil from hands or anything behind. Worked like a charm when I had an iBook.
Windex won't work for the iBook -- harmful ammonia -- it ain't like in My Big Fat Greek Wedding where spritzing Windex solves everything.
60 grit is too coarse for this purpose. A finer grit will produce a nicer "brushed" appearance. Finishing it off with a car buffer and some rubbing compound really adds a nice glow. DON'T use any laquer thinners....they're too expensive. [img]redface.gif[/img]
i just ordered one of those cleaning kits
i will post my findings
so far, website ordering does not work
had to call long distance to detroit on my nickle.
Get a; "oh, you have go speak to my husband."
Takes my order and CC number.
I ask for an email to confirm the order and it has not arrived. I guess never sent.
Email to not only confirm order but to give me tracking info. as well.
I've used that little grey cloth that comes with the flat-panel imacs - I think that it was designed to be a 'polishing' cloth for the metal 'handle'. I still have the plastic on that part so no need to polish it. It's sort of like an eyeglass cleaning cloth - don't know if this is advisable or not, but it takes the dust off nicely. ..I think the sandpaper route would definitely void your Applecare [img]tongue.gif[/img]
