I use" Endust for Electronics" it works great. I like the ones in the plastic container you can pull up one at a time. Locally on container of 70 wipes cost $15 +tax. Amazon sells a six pack for $32 no tax, no shipping.

50/50 - Great inexpensive alternative to those looking to replace 50/50 alcohol.
Cleans possibly better than Brillianze. Doesn't leave that "better than new" look, but a good clean dull look.

Both worked excellent on screens, keyboards, cases, etc.

50/50 is hard to beat for the price if you are doing a lot of cleaning. In my opinion works better than alcohol.

Brillianize is a fantastic product for those that want to spend a little more. Looks like plastic has been treated with Armor-all, but much less slippery, although still slightly slippery. Works great for giving that "just detailed" look.

Take your choice depending on your needs and budget.

Me, I plan on using them both.....Brillianize in small bottle for my tool kit. 50/50 for use in the shop or larger projects.

You're mileage may vary.
Hi all,

After several days of use, my personal laptop, treated with Brillianize, still looks "just detailed". It seems to be repelling fingerprints and dust extremely well. Well worth anyone to purchase a small bottle and give it a try.

50/50 continues to do a very good job. It removes stains and dirt very well. Only thing I noticed is a slight "vinegar" smell that disappears after a while. Doesn't bother me, but something to consider. I might try reducing the concentration of vinegar to distilled water and see how it performs. Still a VERY good solution for all around use.

HI all,

i havenít commented so much here but i am working on changing that

I have used this for over 10 years without any problems , can clean LCD/LED and all covers , not so pricy if you get good deal from reseller

amazon.co.uk/Wurth-Active-Glass-Cleaner/dp/B003TP39CO

"Wurth Active Glass Cleaner is a stable cleaning foam, it leaves no run off on vertical surfaces. Outstanding dirt dissolving power. Gentle on material. Non aggressive on paint , rubber and plastic . Silicone and AOX free"


This is a foam so it will not "run" from you, and you donít need to use that much, bought about 12 cans in Oct. 2011, still have 5 unused and 3 are currently in use, give it a try i am going to test "Brilllianize and 50/50 Distilled Water/Distilled White Vinegar"

regards

I agree with this method. It's what they're designed for.

I only use disposable cleaning cloths. It only takes a single spec of screw burr or other detritis fallen into the cloth and you're replacing LED panels and other plastics after rubbing them with the grit.

I keep a big roll of disposable cloth wipes handy and throw out after each use. I learned to do this the hard way :/

I usually use a clean damp microfiber towel. If there aren't any around, I'll use a small sheet from a roll of shop towels.

Sometimes a 50-50 combo vinegar and water for cleaning - a little stinky but really effective.

Finally got around to trying vinegar and demineralised water.

Im now a convert.

Works better than anything I have tried (including alcohol and Brillianise, window cleaner, various other products).Particularly good for 'streak free' screen cleaning. Iwsh I had known about this years ago... would have saved me a lot of scrubbing and polishing!!

Hello,

If you want the ultimate look.......

Clean with Vinegar/Water for the gunk, then a quick wipe with a cloth that has some Brillianise. Brillianise cloth can be used over again and kept in a zip lock bag for further use.

Smile Mom says, cleaning a laptop screen

Step 1, Dust with Swiffer duster to get particles off screen
Step 2, clean with Windex making sure not to allow liquid to drip
Step 3, wipe with 70 % alcohol on clean cloth.
IMPORTANT cloth must be CLEAN. If you wash your towels at home be sure not to use fabric soften in the dry. Fabric soften prevents towel from absorbing properly.
