Q: How do I clean my computer screen and television?
A: Static electricity can cause quite a build-up of dust on a screen. Before cleaning, turn off the power to the system.

Consult an owners manual before cleaning any screen.
Trade Secrets to make your own cleaning easier
- While vacuuming go directly to the far corner of the room. Don’t double your vacuuming by vacuuming into and out of the room just vacuum out of the room or simply just vacuum the room once.
- When dusting or cleaning a room start from behind the door and go around the room so you don’t double your steps and you are more thorough by not missing items as you go around the room.
- When going around the room go from top to bottom so if dust falls down it falls down where you are cleaning next.
- Use a duster to reach up to places like high shelves and ceiling fans.
- When cleaning a toilet bowl put the cleaner on the toilet brush and swish around the bowl as opposed to pouring a lot of cleaner around the bowl and then simply flushing most of your cleaner down the toilet.
