    PlastX on Dell Latitude C610 Laptop LCD Screen

    Well the kiddies dropped their ancient laptop on the kitchen floor so for $14.14 for a new base and power jack I figured I'd fix it. While I was at it I figured I'd try PlastX to get all the scratches (like someone drawing with a pen on the screen) out of the screen. Well it got 99% of the scratches out and even took what looked like water spots off the screen. Sorry no pics but I assure you the results were amazing!

    While it's great to hear that you had such good results on this old screen, we will caution others against using PlastX on newer laptop screens, in car navigation screens, etc. These can be very delicate surfaces that can be easily damaged by improper use, or overly aggressive use, of PlastX or any other similar product. In fact, PlastX is not designed for these surfaces so we recommend against using it for that application.

    That said, it sounds as though you had nothing really to lose here and you got great results. It should also be noted that if things were to go wrong, they would go wrong during the application and not just show up down the road.

    I know this is about PlastX, but can I use quick interior detailer ( spray or wipes ) in laptops or LcD tv screens?

    Well put. Nothing to lose and I would NOT have tried this on my new laptop unless I was replacing the screen.

    Yes, as long as you don't let it self dry on the surface. QID is safe for in car navigation screens and we know several people who've used it on laptops, iPads, etc. It's probably best to spray the product onto a folded microfiber towel, wipe the screen and then flip to the dry side of the towel for a final wipe. Never just spray it onto the surface and let it dry.

    M18 Clear Plastic Detailer is nice for dusting down clear plastics.
