How To Clean Painted Televisions With Windex

Painted TVs have a tendency to accumulate debris and grime that can accumulate on a small TV panel. Even if your TVs are in great condition, you will likely find some debris under the tape. Using Windex with warm water and a cotton ball is a simple and effective method for removing tape residue and discoloration.

Painted TVs have a tendency to accumulate debris and grime that can accumulate on a small TV panel. Even if your televisions are in great condition, you will likely find some debris under the tape. Using a cotton ball with warm water and a windex will remove residue and discoloration.

This is the easiest way to remove excess tape residue. Use the cotton ball to scrape off a small amount of residue onto the flat side of the cloth. Then use a clean cloth and damper to wipe down the whole panel, from the edges to the center of the bottom, and from the top up.

Wipe down the areas that won’t come off with Windex or other paper cloths.

Here is an example of the results of a clean, fresh wipe-down:

Tape Residue Removal On The Back of The Television

Here are a couple of examples of how the back of the television can look like after being exposed to tape residue.

What’s the best way to remove tape residue using Windex?

As I mentioned earlier in the guide, you will need a cotton ball with warm water and some Windex or a paper towel with warm water. You’ll probably need more than one cotton ball.

Here, I used a cotton ball and just lightly wiped the television. This is probably too messy and takes much longer than the method above to wipe the screen completely clean.

Washing Painted Tv’s In a Washing Machine and Dryer

Washing your Tv in the dishwasher or washing it in an ordinary washing machine is a good way to get rid of excess tape residue. To get started, just follow these instructions exactly and follow them in conjunction with the steps in my previous Guide for Cleaning The Screen of Painted Television’s Using the Windex method above. After the initial wash cycle, you can rinse out most of the Windex using the tap, but if it was sitting on the screen and you just want to clean it, then use a clean dish towel and dry it by itself. When I did this, I usually let it sit for half an hour and then take it out and dry it under the dryer for a few minutes.
