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?


They feel pretty soft and work good on other electronics.

Thanks for the help.

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
) 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.

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.

Here are what they look like:


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.

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.

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.
