I don't have a liquid solution specially made to clean the screens of phones. So what's the substitute for that? I can't use only a cloth since my screen has got stains. So can I use sanitizer/ lens solution? Or is there a better substitute? I need a solution for a stain on my phone's screen. Since for fingerprint marks I simply use a spectacles' cloth

  • @SurpriseDog will have to work your way, if no solution comes up! ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Anyway thanks! – Ojasvi Jul 18 '20 at 16:03

The safest method is to use a lint free cloth (preferably), moistened with soapy water.

  • Is that safe? Have you ever used it? – Ojasvi Jul 20 '20 at 18:42

    Yes, I have. It's probably the most conservative thing you could do. – BobJS1 Jul 20 '20 at 19:53

It highly depends on the kind of dirt which is deposited on the screen.

For the most of the cases (no exceptions so far) I used 2 methods:

  • use some clean dry cotton cloth - dry cleaning; removes mostly dust and natural finger grease;
  • use some wet clean cotton cloth to wash stubborn spots, then apply the fist method for finishing.

I use smartphones for about 10 years, and the above always worked.

NOTE: I am careful and I do not "apply" on the screen unneeded garbage: greases, chocolates, paints...
