How to Clean the Screen on an Acer Monitor

Acer carries a number of electronic products, including computer monitors.
When the monitor needs cleaning, you cannot use glass cleaning because the screen is not made of glass. Instead, the monitor is made of a thick plastic layer that requires special care. Using glass cleaner will damage an Acer monitor screen, but there are a few safe cleaning products that allow you to keep the monitor clean and looking new.

Step 1

Turn off and unplug the Acer monitor.

Step 2

Wipe a clean microfiber cloth gently over the Acer screen.

Step 3

Spray a light squirt of screen cleaning spray onto the cloth to lightly dampen the cloth. This spray must not contain any solvents.

Step 4

Wipe the cloth over the Acer screen and let it air dry.

Things You Will Need

  • Microfiber cloth
  • Non-solvent screen cleaning spray


  • Keep the monitor positioned out of direct sunlight to prevent damage. Do not press hard when cleaning, and do not attempt to take apart the monitor.
