    Vinegar and laptop screens 17th Oct 04 at 4:17 PM
    Would using vinegar to clean a laptop screen be a match made in heaven, or should I not go there ...?

    Thanks for replying. Usually I use the little screen cleaners from PC World, but they seem too dry to do a good job. I didn't dare to risk water but as you have used it already, I'll give it a try.
    Thank you

    I use vinegar on pc screen, but never tried it on the lap-top. Got an older one here that we don't use.......will give it a go and let you know.

    I use micro-fibre cloths that you can buy cheaply in "bargain" type shops (got mine from a Ponden Mill sale).

    You don't have to wet them, they make a great job on p.c. screens and windows and you can wash them again and again and don't have to use chemicals.
