We show the most popular mistakes that can be made when using displays such as: flat screen TV, plasma, tablet, smartphone, LED, TFT,
Want to clean LCD, OLED displays, notebooks, etc.

These mistakes often happen unconsciously and can have undesirable negative consequences.

Up to irreparable destruction of the surface.

The list of the most common mistakes:

Use glass cleaner to clean ... STOP!

Glass cleaners often contain alcohol, vinegar or citric acid which can attack the surface of your display and cause it to become matt. Once this has happened, it cannot be undone.

It is not without reason that there is often a note on glass cleaner that it is not suitable for LED LCD TVs.

Brush in the sun

In direct sunlight it is like cleaning windows. There will always be streaking. Therefore you should not expose the display to direct sunlight if you want to clean it. In addition, the resulting heat causes the cleaner to evaporate directly, making cleaning impossible.

Too warm

As with direct sunlight, the television will heat up over time. If the television is too warm, the applied cleaner evaporates immediately and the television cannot be cleaned properly. You should therefore turn off the display and let it cool down at least an hour before cleaning. It is also advisable to pull out the power plug and, if necessary, remove the battery from notebooks.

Press too hard

TFT / LCD / LED plasma displays are getting thinner and larger. This also makes you more and more sensitive to shock and pressure.

If you press too hard, the screen can be irreparably damaged.

Therefore: Let the cleaner work and do not work with pressure!

tap water

You often read that simple tap water is enough to get your TFT / LCD / LED television (matt, clear, retina displays) clean and streak-free. However, this cannot work. Tap water contains lime, which settles on the picture surface and leaves ugly stains and streaks.

Coarse or fluffy cleaning cloths

A too coarse cleaning cloth can scratch the surface of your display and prevent a clear picture forever. Lint cleaning cloths are just not fun. No matter how hard you try, the display will always appear "dirty". Use the Prof. microfibre cloths from ROGGE Professional.

Clean the screen properly

There are some mistakes you can make when cleaning your display or flat screen TV.

We would like to give you some tips and products so that you can still enjoy your display in the future. Before you actually start cleaning your display, you should always remove dust from it. This is important because the dust particles can leave fine scratches on your flat screen TV if you try to remove them with a cleaning cloth.

These not only look ugly, but can also make the image appear milky. We therefore recommend cleaning once or twice a week with, for example, the ROGGE Prof. microfibre cloth. This allows the dust to be gently removed from your display TV screens. The electrostatic attraction also makes dusting easier.

Now that your display, LED TV has been freed of dust, you can clean your display streak-free with the ROGGE DUO-Clean Original.

You can also clean your display housing (frame and base, keyboard) with the ROGGE display cleaner. (only use a slightly damp cloth)

Cleaning wipes

There are a few things to consider when choosing the right cleaning cloth. The wrong cleaning cloth causes frustration when cleaning. To ensure that this does not happen, here are the most important criteria that you should pay attention to so that cleaning your beloved flat screen TV does not end in a fiasco. You should make sure that the cleaning cloth does not lint.

The fine ROGGE / Vileda Prof. microfibre cloths are particularly suitable here. These absorb the dirt well and can be washed up to 180 times in the washing machine without any loss of quality.

The ROGGE & Vileda Prof. Microfibers are ideal for dry cleaning as well as for cleaning with the ROGGE cleaner. If the cleaning effect of your cloth should decrease, the microfibre cloth may have to be washed.


Spray the ROGGE cleaner onto the cloth (damp with a mist) and then carefully clean the sensitive display surfaces. If necessary, repeat the cleaning process if it is heavily soiled.

Please note / always follow the manufacturer's instructions from your (display manufacturer / device manufacturer) for the purpose of cleaning and maintaining your displays.
