TV's are the most used appliance in many a modern home but rarely see any cleaning, says Dial-A-Maid Cleaning Service in Evanston, Il. the screen collects dust by static attraction and should be dusted at least weekly, with an electrostatic dustcloth. Unplug the set first before this or any cleaning operation. Keep liquid and aerosol cleaners and solvents of any kind away from a television, and never poke anything into the ventilation slots at the backs of the set. If fingerprints and smudges cloud your screen, go after them with glass cleaner. Just don't spray the screen itself, spray the cleaner into a soft cloth and then wipe the screen and polish dry. The rest of the exterior can be dusted or wiped lightly with a cloth dampened with neutral cleaner, wooden parts can be polished with furniture polish.Again, always spray the cloth.
Telephones should be also cleaned frequently. Spray a soft cloth with all purpose cleaner solution. Then wipe the entire phone, paying particular attention to the mouthpiece and earpiece. Always spray the cloth, not the phone. To dust between the buttons, use a water,dampened dustcloth. Never use harsh cleaners or abrasives on a phone because phone plastic, like all plastic, can't take it. Agressive cleaning will remove the finish of some of today's endless variety of telephones, says Dial-A-Maid Cleaning Service.
