I don't think i have heard of a worse thing you can do seriously this is a very very bad idea the screen that covers your lcd is a form of plastic.

Alright, thanks for letting me know. Didn't think iso would do that. We use it to clean IHS's on CPUs, but I woulda thought that it would dry up quicker than reacting to the plastic.

you can use it to clean computer parts there made of silicon and metal not plastic ( any alcohol will cause any plastic to start to break down ) try putting gas on there same thing it's a solvent

+1 Don't use a solvent on an LCD. Water works fine anyways, so why deviate from something that works?

You're right gingerbee. alcohol will make your monitor dissolve before your very eyes!. I'm sure if you submerge your monitor is alcohol, it will probably dissolve over the space of a few decades.

Seriously, I am a heavy smoker. I use isopropyl to clean off my lcd monitor. I've been doing this for over 2 years now with absilutely no damage whatsoever. It removes the tar and nicotine without a hitch. It does leave a small film but that is easily removed with a very lightly dampened cloth. In fact, once in a while I'll wipe down the entire surface with it. I also use it to clean fingerprints off the side windows (plastic) of mine and my gf pc's. I have yet to see and dissolving, clouding, sizzling or any other chemical reaction occur.

I think the lcd wipes that you can buy use DENATURED isopropyl alcohol.

If it's glass then iso is fine..... but plastic I'd be wary...

What do you think the film left is from the reaction the alcohol is having with the plastic on your lcd ( like i said it's your lcd ) with the life expectancy of lcd's ( long time) I have seen the thin plastic get eaten through myself thanks to my wife showing me it. Caused by what people like to clean there tv's/lcd and such with ( you mean the cleaning product the tell you to use OMG) . learn chemistry ( my wife cleans hundreds of these in a week) Good luck with all your lcd's keep the iso flowing ha ha
