Hi, on the outer edge of the screen (the plastic bit) of my tv, i put a bit of polish on the duster (its been a while, gathered some dust!) and gently rubbed around the edge of the tv, now im left with these ugly marks on the black plastic.
any tips to get rid of it? By marks i mean, you can see where ive rubbed around and some speckles on there too.
Technotiger is correcct ..try a little diluted vinegar to remove the marks..With respect though....most plastic surfaces on PC's and associated components usually mention that use of polishes or other cleaning materials are not to be advised. There is no absolute guarantee that any of the various products do not have solvent based materials in the formula and such solvent based types can damage plastic. Warm water and a very little amount of Mild detergent is usually the most that is ever recommended.If your monitor edge trim is "Piano Black" ..this can show even the tiniest scuffing or finger marking...Hope it cleans up o/k
Just for future reference, I've been using a universal cleaner, originally bought for my monitor and keyboard on all my plastic around the house. It can be used on glass, plastics (printer, keyboard, phone etc), and even metal. Comes in a pump spray, and its equivalent would be available from most pc shops. It even works wonders on my LCD Tv.
I've always found that the "non smear" cleaners always leave smears, thats why I never use them.
