Overview
Follow these instructions to clean your interactive display screen without damaging its anti-glare coating or other product components. These instructions are also suitable for interactive whiteboards and all other Clevertouch accessories.


Details
Generally, it is best to use only a cloth slightly dampened with distilled water to clean your Clevertouch screen. Never spray liquid directly onto the surface of the Clevertouch screen.


Clevertouch has tested and approves the use of the following:


1. Diluted bleach solution
To mix the correct solution, using standard household bleach at a strength of 5% Sodium Hypochlorite:

  • 4 tsp. of bleach per quart of distilled water
  • 1/3 Cup bleach per gallon of distilled water
  • 20ml bleach per 980ml distilled water
  • 80ml bleach per 3.92L distilled water

Adjust accordingly to maintain the 0.1% solution if you’re using bleach stronger or weaker than 5% Sodium Hypochlorite.

We recommend using a spray bottle for applying the solution to the cloth to avoid oversaturating it.
Note: Test a small, inconspicuous area before you clean the entire surface.
 
70-90% isopropyl alcohol
Isopropyl alcohol comes pre diluted and no mixing is required. For concentrations above 90%, dilute accordingly with distilled water.

We recommend using a spray bottle for applying the solution to the cloth to avoid oversaturating it.
Note: Test a small, inconspicuous area before you clean the entire surface.

If your screen is still dirty, apply a small amount of 70% isopropyl alcohol (IPA) solution to your cloth and gently wipe down the exterior of your display. Alternatively, 70% IPA Disinfectant Wipes.

To clean the screen
You will need two lint-free, non-abrasive cloths for this procedure.

  1. Turn off any connected computers.
  2. Turn the display off. 
  3. Wipe all surfaces with the first dry lint-free, non-abrasive cloth to remove dust and debris.
  4. Gently spray a small amount of the water or cleaning solution on the second cloth. Note: Do not oversaturate the cloth to the point it is dripping.
  5. Wipe the screen with the dampened cloth.
  6. After wiping the screen, wipe off the remaining Clevertouch surfaces that one can normally touch, such as the frame, pens, and other accessories.
