Displays are essential to many electronic devices, providing us with vibrant visuals and crucial information. Whether it's the screen of our smartphones, tablets, computer monitors, or TVs it's important to keep them clean and well-maintained to ensure optimal viewing experiences. One effective way to protect and preserve the display's clarity is by using a display shield. In this article, we will explore the best practices for maintaining crystal-clear displays and offer cleaning tips specifically tailored to The Display Shield.
Understanding The Display Shield
Before we delve into the cleaning techniques, let's first understand what a display shield is and why it is beneficial. The Display Shield offers full 360 degree TV or display hardware and screen protection. The front screen is a thin layer of material designed to safeguard the display from scratches, fingerprints, flying objects, and other potential damages. It acts as a barrier between the screen and external elements, ensuring longevity and maintaining visual quality.
The display shield offers an additional layer of protection for your device's screen, shielding it from daily wear and tear. The front panel is composed of extremely durable polycarbonate. Apart from providing physical protection, display shields also offer features like anti-glare properties or blue light filtering, enhancing the viewing experience further.
The Display Shield is a protective enclosure that not only provides shatterproof polycarbonate screen protection but also offers full enclosure weatherproofing and defense.
Preparing for Cleaning
To clean your display shield effectively, gather the following supplies:
Microfiber cloth: This soft, lint-free cloth is perfect for gently cleaning the shield without leaving any scratches or residue.
Cleaning solution: Use a cleaning solution specifically formulated for The Display Shield or a mixture of mild soap and water. Avoid using harsh chemicals or alcohol-based solutions as they may damage the shield's surface.
Spray bottle: Fill a spray bottle with the cleaning solution for easy application.
Cleaning a digital display screen protector requires a delicate touch to avoid any potential damage. Here are some techniques to ensure a thorough yet safe cleaning process:
Cleaning Process for The Display Shield
- Start by using a dry microfiber cloth to remove any dust or loose particles from the display shield. Gently wipe the shield in a circular motion to eliminate any surface debris.
- If there are stubborn smudges or fingerprints, dampen the microfiber cloth slightly with the cleaning solution. Again, ensure the cloth is not dripping wet to prevent liquid from seeping into the device.
- Use the dampened cloth to wipe the shield using gentle, circular motions. Apply light pressure while ensuring even coverage across the entire surface.
- For tougher stains or smudges, you can spray a small amount of the cleaning solution directly onto the microfiber cloth. Avoid spraying the solution directly onto the shield to prevent it from seeping into the device.
- After cleaning the shield, use a dry microfiber cloth to remove any remaining moisture. Gently wipe the shield in a straight line motion, ensuring a streak-free finish.
Proper Cleaning Steps
To achieve the best results and maintain a crystal-clear display shield, follow these step-by-step cleaning instructions:

Step 3: Cleaning the Shield with a Microfiber Cloth
Dampen a microfiber cloth with the cleaning solution and gently wipe the shield in circular motions. Ensure even coverage across the entire surface, paying extra attention to areas with visible smudges or fingerprints.
Step 4: Applying the Cleaning Solution (if Necessary)
For stubborn stains or smudges, spray a small amount of the cleaning solution onto the microfiber cloth. Avoid spraying directly onto the shield to prevent liquid damage.
