Special Delivery

An Original Way to Salute Moms and Dads

Looking for a clever way to "deliver" your Mother's Day or Father's Day greeting? Nancy Bock, Vice President of Consumer Education at the American Cleaning Institute®, has a unique idea. Why not leave a card propped up in front of Mom's or Dad's newly cleaned computer monitor?

To clean an LCD laptop or flat-panel monitor screen, use a soft, lint-free cloth or a microfiber cloth that's been slightly moistened with plain water. Do not use paper towels, as they can scratch the monitor's surface. Wipe the screen gently to remove dust and fingerprints.

For glass CRT (television-style) monitors, use an ordinary household glass-cleaning solution and a soft, lint-free cloth or microfiber cloth. Never spray the cleaner directly onto the screen â€" spray the cloth instead.

Unless the manufacturer recommends differently, do not use alcohol or ammonia-based cleaners on the monitor, as these can damage the anti-glare coatings.

And to remind your family about the importance of keeping computers clean, put a message on the screen that says "Wishing you a bright, clean, happy day!".
