Are Swiffer 360 dusters safe to use on new Samsung LED screens?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Got a new Samsung LED a week ago and it's already collecting dust on the screen. Just wondering if the Swiffer 360 (yellow) dusters are safe to use on the screen? rolleyes.gif
They feel pretty soft and work good on other electronics.
Thanks for the help.

Anyone know or use these on their panels?

I have been using a Swiffer duster on my LCD for about 4 years. No problems and very effective. Use little pressure.

In my opinion I would never use something I used on the floor or around my house at all. If you pick up the slightest dust/dirt you can scratch your screen. Also certain matierals may scratch.

Your safest best is using a microfiber cloth. These are very cheap and work extremely well for any sensitive jobs like tv's and monitors etc. Microfiber cloths also pick up any oil that may be left from fingerprints, which the swiffer 360 will not do.

I've been recommending the Swifter Sweeper Dry Refills for light dusting on any panel type for a long time. They work great, don't leave any residue on the screen and are completely safe as long as you don't press too hard on the panel. For a more thorough cleaning, a good microfiber cloth dampened with distilled water (warm if need be) is all you need for most cleaning jobs. I don't get fingerprints (or peanut butter prints if you have kids within reach wink.gif) on my panel so a light weekly dusting is all we need with the occasional water/microfiber cleaning.

Please understand I do not use the floor unit. I use the handheld duster that is not used around the house. Example

I have one just for the TV. So far no fingerprints. I would try something else for fingerprints.
As I said very good for dust.

The handheld one is probably a bit easier to use than just the refills (which is what I use). As long as you don't press too hard, either method works very well.

Yea, I'm not talking about any floor products. The Swiffer that we have are the 360 version here: http://www.swiffer.com/products/swiffer-360-dusters
I would only used a brand new one out of the box and then use it later for the rest of the dusty furniture. eek.gif

I think as long as they are non-scented they should work just fine.

So the Swiffer Sweeper Refills are okay? I actually have used them before, and they seemed to work well, but recently I got some more from the store and they seem different than the old ones I had. They're still called the same thing, and the package specifies that they're "dry," but when I touch them my fingers feel kind of sticky. Is this just the way they're made? Is it safe?

That's odd. I'd be a little wary of using them if you can feel something. I'm looking at my box now and it's a green and yellow box, labeled Swifter Sweeper Unscented Refills. 32 Dry Sweeping Cloths with a UPC code of 3700031822 and they feel dry to the touch. You can always dry dust with a high quality microfiber cloth.

I just use a old t-shirt to wipe mine down. Tried the duster, and all it did was leave dist along the edges.

Personally I wouldn't use those. Those are a bit dense and more for floors. Like has been posted earlier, I use the Yellow box refills that attach to the hand held duster. They are much lighter and glide over your set. Been using them for years, not a one problem ever.

grpape, no different than using a t-shirt. Probably will work better than the lighter weight ones.

Must be a regional thing cause my box (purchased at Target) doesn't say "3X Cleaner" or have the P&G logo on the front. There is one small pic of a floor duster on the front and that's it. Gregzoll's idea of using a clean, cotton t-shirt would probably work just as well. You can even wash it from time to time. However, it will lose it's softness over time but then you just get another old t-shirt. It looks like we are talking about the same product, just with slightly different packaging but there is absolutely no "feel" at all to the ones we use other than they are really soft. Anyway, I only dust my a panel about two or three times a month at best.

The scented ones (Gain scent!) will RUIN your screen. Take my word for it. I know from experience.

I have been using these for years and no issues.

An old thread but the Swifter Sweeper Refills will work just fine as long as they are the dry kind and unscented. The packaging may look different (regional?) but as long as they are the dry unscented ones you'll be fine.
