The Surface touchscreen is coated to make it easier to clean.
You don’t need to rub hard to remove fingerprints or oily spots.
Use a soft, lint-free cloth (either dry or dampened with water or eyeglass cleaner—never glass or other chemical cleaners) or a screen cleaning wipe to gently wipe the screen.
How do you clean a touch screen?
Fill a spray bottle with the diluted alcohol, lightly moisten a lint-free, preferably microfiber, cloth (no paper towels) and gently wipe down the screen and case. Never spray directly onto the device. To clean corners and around ports, use lint-free foam rather than cotton Q-tips.
Can you use alcohol to clean touch screen?
Clean Your Touch Screen Gadgets with Water, Diluted Vinegar, or Rubbing Alcohol. If you want to not only clean but disinfect your touch screen, you can use a bit of isopropyl alcohol on some devices (Apple, for example, does not recommend it). Check your manufacturer’s warnings to see what they allow.
Can you use Windex on a touch screen computer?
Never use harsh chemicals, including Windex, anything with ammonia, or alcohol-based cleaners. While you can purchase special cleaning solutions (such as iKlenz, recommended by Apple) these are not necessary. Never use abrasive cloths, paper towels, or tissue paper, which can scratch the touchscreen.
Can I use alcohol wipes to clean my laptop screen?
Champion. The general rule of thumb is to never use alcohol to clean your laptop’s screen or even your HDTV screen. Alcohol is a solvent which means it can strip away a protective coating. Also avoid using anything with ammonia (like Windex).
