REVIEW: RONOL Screenclean
As early as 2005, we examined the topic: How can I best clean my LCD monitor? Nothing has really changed with regard to this question. Whether matte or glossy, screens for monitors, TV sets, mobile phones, navigational devices and laptops still need to be cleaned and treated properly.
In addition, surface cleaning for the exterior of monitor is of great importance today. Surfaces in piano-lacquer design will not forgive incorrect cleaning and display scratches and smears caused by incorrect treatment mercilessly.
In our test, we will look in more detail at the "Ronol Screenclean" products from the company Cleanlike Regnery GmbH, which has provided us with a sample of its product range.
Ronol products are TÜV certified and are recommended by well-known manufacturers such as NEC, Samsung, Loewe, Toshiba and Hyundai.

In general, no commercial glass cleaners, alcohol or spirits should be used to clean your highly sensitive screen. These substances could permanently damage the panel surface. You should also take care when selecting a cleaning cloth since high-gloss surfaces unfortunately will not give you a second chance. If you use the wrong cloth, the scratches and smears will forever be visible on the external surface.
Some manufacturers also regard the use of water in a critical light and some even warn explicitly against the use of water and include this advice in their user guides as well. Water is regarded in a critical light because on one hand, blind spots can arise and on the other, the respective hardness level for long-term cleaning is not irrelevant.
By 'blind spots', we mean areas where drops of water dry on the panel surface. These spots can be permanent and affect viewing enjoyment. The degree of hardness of the water is relevant if the water is very calciferous. Tiny deposits on the display surface can cause scratches with frequent and long-term use.
Cleaning should be carried out when the device is switched off and cold. There are stark warnings about cleaning screens when they are in use. This is of course because electronic devices should never be brought into contact with liquids. The temperature when the device is in use also causes cleaning fluid to evaporate more quickly and therefore makes streak-free cleaning more difficult.
