DIY Screen Cleaner

DIY Screen Cleaner

In our digital age, dirt builds up from your computer screen and tablets to smartphones and TV screen. Maintaining cleanliness on these screens isn't just about enhancing visibility but also about extending the lifespan of our devices. While commercial screen cleaners are readily available, many of them contain harsh chemicals that can diminish the protective coatings on the screen display and also may not be great for our health. That's where Do It Yourself (DIY) screen cleaners come in as a safe, effective, and economical alternative.

In this guide, we'll give you a recommended DIY recipe using ingredients that you can find mostly in your household to give your digital displays a gentle but effective cleanse.

DIY solution Ingredients

  • Distilled Water: This will be the base of your cleaner, distilled water is free from minerals and contaminants found in tap water that can leave residues or damage the screen's protective coating.

  • Isopropyl Alcohol: This will be the key ingredient for its disinfecting properties. However, you want to make sure it's diluted properly in this case we'll use 20% to ensure it's gentle enough not to harm coatings but also be effective in removing grease and killing germs.

  • Aloe Vera Gel: This will be the 2nd key ingredient used at 20% to reduce germ build-up due to its natural antibacterial qualities. This will be the finishing ingredient to make the cleaning solution very gentle and unlikely to cause any harm to the user or your device.


  • 2 Oz Spray Bottle (You can opt for a larger bottle if you like)

  • Microfiber Cloth (If you don't this you use a soft lint-free cloth)


Follow these steps to create and use your DIY screen cleaner effectively:

  1. Mix the Solution
    In a clean spray bottle, combine 60% distilled water, 20% isopropyl alcohol, and 20% aloe Vera gel. Make sure you shake and mix well before use for even distribution especially because aloe vera gel can be a bit thick.

  2. Apply the Cleaner
    Use the spray bottle to spray a small amount of the cleaning solution onto a microfiber cloth or if you don't have one try to find a soft cloth that is lint-free. Do not spray directly onto the screen as this can risk liquid seeping into the edges or openings of the device potentially damaging it.

  3. Wipe the Screen
    Using the dampened microfiber cloth or soft lint-free cloth start wiping from the center and move outward. This technique will help to avoid streaking and to clean it evenly.

  4. Dry the Screen
    Finally, use the dry section of your cloth to pat down with minimal pressure to get rid of any streaks or residues that remain.

Precautionary Measures for Safe Cleaning

Here are some extra precautionary measures that you should also consider before making or using a DIY screen cleaner on your actual screen.

Check Compatibility

Before using any new cleaning solution, try testing it on a small area to ensure it does not damage the screen or remove any of its coatings. Also, power on your device to check if the pixels are displaying correctly after applying in that area.

Follow Device Guidelines

Always consult your device's manufacturer guidelines for cleaning recommendations to avoid using materials or chemicals that may void warranties or damage the device.
