Bug splatter remover...

Post by addtocart on Sun Jan 01, 2017 5:24 pm

Back in the day, we used a product called "Goo-Gone". It was great for bugs, but mostly we used it to remove the sticky adhesive that seems to always stay when you remove a sticker from a new product. Any idea of a product that will remove that sticky goo from the front of my new TV?

Google Goo Gone. Many sources, including Amazon and at least U.S. Walmart.
Buen Suerte.

I've seen "Goo Gone" and "Goof Off" (similar) locally. Jara, Walmart, wherever.

Read the TV manual as some TVs have coating on screen for anti-glare.  Nail polish remover is acetone (cancer causing solvent use outside) unless something has changed.  It is very easy to hurt todays modern tv screens. Do not push ( or swat a bug ) on a LED screen.  It breaks much easier than an old plasma or CRT sets. Follow the instructions for cleaning the screen that are in the manual and don't push hard or it will break! Also never touch the screen when moving TV. Use the frame and back to hold TV while moving and never put your hands on the screen itself. Train all helpers in this when moving. Many TVs go bye bye when being moved or cleaned.
