Cleaning Water spots

8 posts in this topic

I am curious to what some of you use to clean the waterspots off of the screens on your electronics. I never really noticed them on the non-colored units before and made the switch to colored units last year. I have used an eye glass cleaner and it seems to work on some of the spots, but I cannot get them all off. Any suggestions?

It sucks I know. I've heard Windex and Vinegar. Sometimes lake water too in a pinch.

I have also used them really soft Nikon scope wipe. I found it in the hunting department at Gander hanging on an end cap. (i have no ideal how to explain it.)

I think you need more cow bell sounds to be the problem!

I bought a a clear custom made screen cover on HSOList a few years back that covers your screen like a palm pilot cover (thin layer of plastic) and have never had a problem with my x-15. I love the thing but don't know if you can get that cover thing anymore. I think it was called an overlay.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
