    Hi,

    I have a small scuff on my monitor and was wondering if anyone knows any good screen cleaners or home remedies that won't harm my monitor and take away the blemish.

    Thanks in advance!

    You're likely going to make things worse by trying to fix it. Best to leave it alone, or replace the screen if it's really bothersome.

    I was kinda afraid of that...Someone told me there is a solution that they use to wipe on screens that has micro-polymers in it that basically fills in the the damaged area and makes it look like new, anyone ever heard of this?

    I have heard of this, but I think it is only for glass or hard plastic like they use in eyeglasses. I wouldn't recommend this for your monitor unless it is a CRT.

    It depends HOW big is a scratch or a scuff. I tried such liquid on real glass (not on a computer) and it was pretty much useless. Might be it was not good brand or whatever, but it was total waste of money. If scuff is small and not in critical location try to live with it, in any other case the best thing is to replace it.
