Steps to Cleaning the Screen of your Tablet
By Rachel Suggs Posted in Emerging Tech, Science on February 27, 2015

When you buy a tablet, the first thing that you will need to do is to get a protective cover for the screen. A tablet or a smart phone which has touch screen is at high risk for scratches, thumb prints and so many other things. This is why, along with getting a protective cover, you also need to make sure that you are keeping the screen safe by cleaning it every now and then. Now the problem with cleaning the tablet is that because it is very sensitive, many people end up either getting water into the tablet or pressing the screen in such a way that it gets damaged. Keeping this in mind, I have created a step-by-step instruction list which will help you clean your tablet screen with ease and without any damage. The greatest thing about these instructions is that you really don’t need to get into any fuss or buy expensive material. So, without further delay, read below on how you can easily clean the screen of your tablet.

Step #1:
Before you start with any kind of cleaning, make sure you have switched off the tablet and that it is not connected to any sort of device or charger. Remember that there needs to be zero power supply when you are dealing with water or any other liquid.

Step #2:
Special cloths made of microfiber are available all over the market. These microfiber cloths are especially developed for the purpose of cleaning tablets, smart phones or other screens. However, if you can’t get hold of these then you could use the cloth that comes with your glasses as well.

Step #3:
Sometimes, all you need to do to avoid damage or to clean a dirty screen is to simply wipe it with the cloth. So, before you use any water or liquid on the screen, wipe it (in circular soft motion) with a dry cloth. If that doesn’t seem to get rid of the smudges, then you can always use a slightly damp cloth as well. You need to remember very carefully to only damp the cloth because using excess liquid will cause it to seep into the tablet. Also, keep a side of the cloth dry for later.

Step #4:
When using the moisten cloth on the screen, make sure you go around in a circular motion. If there is something sticky or stubborn on the screen, you can also apply some amount of pressure but not a lot because that may damage the tablet’s screen.

Step # 5:
Do not leave the tablet once you have wiped it with the moisten cloth. Instead, use the dry side of the microfiber cloth to remove any kind of moisture from the screen area.

Step #6:
Do not switch on the tablet immediately after cleaning it even if you have dried it properly. This is a precautionary measure and needs to be taken if you want your tablet to be free of any damage.
