Re: Worst Ways To Clean Your TV

70% isopropyl alcohol (aka "rubbing alcohol") and a clean lint-free cloth is what I've been using for years.

Vinegar works but I've been told that it can cause yellowing in the long term.

Remember that the surface of an LCD screen is NOT glass. It's actually a plastic polarizing film which is layered onto the glass. This is why extra caution must be taken when cleaning LCD displays, unlike plasma and CRT which are more forgiving since the surface is actually glass.

I assume the other 30% is water?
I have a bottle of 99% isopropyl alcohol, is that okay to use or is it too strong for LCD use?

It is fine but overkill. Use it if that is all you have otherwise keep the good stuff (99%) for those situations that need it.

Yes, the other 30% is usually de-ionized or distilled water.
