Cleaning Dell Ultrasharp 2209WA


​I need some good advice for cleaning a DELL Ultrasharp 2209WA. Someone was a little careless and left some tiny splahes of grapefruit juice on the display. In front of the real panel is a plastic panel. I don't want to damage this plastic panel with agressive cleaning sprays or agent. I already took a moist wiping cloth to clean it, but I have now some light cords on the screen.​

​Some good advice?​

You can try some Windex or a cleaner such as 409 on the plastic bezel but NOT the actual screen.  Some screens have a protective coating and many chemicals can damage the protective coating.  They sell LCD cleaners and you could try that on a small corner spot to see if it will affect your screen and if not then you can use it on the entire LCD screen and a microfiber or soft cloth (do not use paper towels).

Thanks. The bezel is not the problem, it's more that plastic screen. It's totaly different to my DELL 2405 displays. They are more robust. I'll try it with the microfiber cloth and maybe the LCD cleaner. But I'm not a friend of that LCD cleaner stuff. It's mostly more illusion than reality.

But I'll give it a try.

I've actually used a very mild version of hand soap and water and then wiped off with a microfiber cleaning cloth.  If you wipe fast enough you'll get a streak free monitor.
