Hi all,

I'm sure I'm not the only one when I say this but I have a problem with very stubborn smears and stains on my display. It seems like whenever I clean it, it stays clean for only a brief moment literally and just goes back to the way it was - 'hazy' etc.

I get a case of OCD knowing and seeing my screen in this state. I don't pay top dollar just to neglect it..

Been using iklear for the most part but have tried other LCD screen cleaners but I nothing seems to work.

If you have any suggestions, please share as I would love to put an end to this problem. Thanks in advance!

Regards,

John

did the TB display come with a cleaning cloth? have you tried that?

on the other hand, I would not just use any cleaner on the market, don't know what corrosive chemicals they put in there.

It can be hard to clean them properly...I had the same problem a while back and like you I'm very compulsive when it comes to screens.

I bought a "Mitt" that came with a gel (which I don't use) but it's a micro-fibre glove which when damp makes cleaning the T/bolt and 27" Imac screens a breeze

You should be able to get one in the States:

When it gets dirty, I just put it in the washing machine...I actually use it on my MBA and MBP too.
