Scratch No More

Scratch No More

Do you have an LCD screen for your computer monitor? Whether it be a laptop or a desktop monitor, they’re nice to have. But, then again, they can easily be damaged if something happens to hit it just right. The most common thing with LCD screens is a scratch. That can happen in just a blink of an eye. So, how do you get rid of a scratch? Well, let me tell you!

First, clean off the surface of your screen with a soft piece of cloth. Next, the best thing to do (even if it does seem a little weird) is use some petroleum jelly (like Vaseline) to fill in the scratch. The Vaseline’s density matches better to the LCD material than anything else, so it will fill in all of the gaps more efficiently. Just rub some on the scratch and then wipe off any excess. Don’t press too hard when you’re doing that though. You want to make sure some of the Vaseline stays there.

Now, there are varying views on how to fix a scratch on an LCD screen. This method seems to work about the best out of all the other suggestions, but it’s possible it won’t work for you. Just be very careful and make sure you get enough of the jelly inside the scratch. If you do that, it should work like a charm and the scratch will be gone forever. If it doesn’t seem to work for you, you can always use a cloth to clean the Vaseline off the screen. It’s at least worth a try, don’t you think?!
