Do you know how to clean a laptop screen properly? Or at least without causing it any harm, or in the worst case – any damage. It can be easy to ignore how messy our screens get if working from home, and you might not even realise that things have gotten out of hand until you can't see the little details clearly anymore. 

Especially as creatives, your screen is important to ensure you're curating your best content, and it's hard to do that with lingering coffee spills or stubborn smudges on your display. If you own one of the best laptops for graphic design, or notably one of the best laptops for photo editing, you'll want your screen as intact as possible.
