Make your own screen-cleaning spray on the cheap
In today’s modern world, almost every individual owns some form of a digital screen, be it a smartphone, tablet, laptop or television. Keeping these screens clean is essential not only for aesthetic reasons but also for maintaining optimum functionality. However, purchasing commercial screen cleaners can be quite expensive. Luckily, there’s an affordable and easy solution – making your own screen-cleaning spray! This article will guide you through the process step-by-step.
Things You’ll Need:
1. Distilled water
2. Isopropyl alcohol (50% or 70% concentration)
3. A small spray bottle
4. A soft microfiber cloth
Step 1: Mixing the Screen-Cleaning Solution
Firstly, gather the required ingredients: distilled water and Isopropyl alcohol. It’s essential to use distilled water instead of tap water because it doesn’t contain minerals that can leave residue on your screens.
In your small spray bottle, create a mixture of half distilled water and half Isopropyl alcohol. You can use either 50% or 70% concentration Isopropyl alcohol for effective screen cleaning. Screw on the cap tightly and give it a good shake to mix the solution well.
Step 2: Cleaning Your Screens with the Homemade Spray
Before using the cleaning spray on any digital screen, ensure that it is turned off and unplugged (if necessary) to avoid any potential electric hazards or damage.
Spray a small amount of your homemade cleaner onto your microfiber cloth – never directly onto your devices’ screens to prevent liquid from seeping into their delicate components.
Gently wipe the moistened cloth across your device’s screen in a circular motion, ensuring that you cover the entire surface so no spots are missed.
Step 3: Drying Your Screens
After cleaning, use a dry microfiber cloth to remove any leftover moisture or residue. In a similar circular motion as before, gently buff your screen to achieve a streak-free finish.
And that’s it! You now have an affordable and effective homemade screen cleaning solution that will keep your devices free from dust, fingerprints, and smudges. Remember to always use a soft microfiber cloth, as other materials like paper towels can cause scratches.
With this DIY screen-cleaning spray on hand, you’ll not only save money but also contribute to reducing waste by reusing the same spray bottle repeatedly.
Happy cleaning and enjoy clear, smudge-free screens for all your devices!
