Windex Multi-Surface VINEGAR, not the other type.

I have one thing that I use for TV, car window, mirrors, and my chart plotter screens. It is a 50/50 mix of distilled water and isopropyl alcohol with a micro fiber cloth. It is cheap, easy to use and does a fantastic job.

Will both the rubbing alcohol mixture or the Multi surface take off water spots? When I get off the water, I wash my boat and leave my units on. I have been using Bass Boat saver but I notice it streaks bad...

the windex with vinegar does great. It will streak at first but the streaks will evaporate quickly

Yes on the water spots off the screen. Isopropyl will take the water spots and streaks off. Works great.

The last generation of monitors I bought were to be cleaned with a watered moist cloth. Y’all be careful using anything else. Alcohol dulled those monitors, I experienced it. Switched to water and got better results. Spots responded to a rub with a finger then a wipe.

Y’all be careful...

Love it... I use it on my sunglasses too, great stuff. Thanks for the tips plus it’s very cheap.

This is the best product I've found for cleaning my sonar displays and
ipads, imacs, etc, etc. Inexpensive. Made for the purpose.

Just spray and wipe off with a micro fiber towel.

.

P.S. Alcohol will harm the non-glare coatings of these screens with use.

That stuff is two parts distilled water, one part 99% iso and a drop of original Dawn. Cleans your glasses too.
