In this article, we are going through “How to remove scratches from your laptop?”

Laptops are expensive things. You want to do everything you can to make sure you take care of your laptop so it lasts as long as possible the way to do that is with a those of elbow grease.

It’s possible that even the slightest scratch on your laptop screen could be harming your computer’s performance and longevity – not just for now, but for years to come. Scratches on the screen can disrupt the airflow over the surface, which can lead to a build-up of dust and oil ‘fuzz’ which will slow down your keyboard response time, cause cursor errors, and eventually lead to screen burn-in. So here are some tips on how to remove scratches from laptop screens so they don’t get worse

Before we get started, a quick word about cleanliness. Be sure to clean your screen complete with a soft cloth after every use, and make sure to dry it immediately. There’s no need to use any special products, as most cleaners will remove scratches just as easily as a soft cloth. If your laptop screen looks dirty, you might want to try another method.

Section 2: Preparation

To start removing scratches from your screen, follow the following steps:

Step 1: Remove the keys from the keyboard. Depending on how your keyboard is designed, you may have to take the keys off to lift them.

Step 2: Remove the metal cable from your screen. This may be a little tricky, but this should be the last step.

Removing a scratch

1. First and foremost, if there’s an existing scratch on your laptop screen, it’s best to be conservative about trying to remove it. These images show the methods of getting a scratch-off an LCD screen:

Using a special tool called a “soft-edged tool” or an “ink remover”, gently drag the tool along with the screen, using care not to damage the raised parts of the screen (where the blue highlight is on the images above).

2. Be sure not to rub your laptop screen in circles. Doing so will move more dirt and debris into the active area.

3. Place your laptop on a cool surface – you want to keep the temperature between 5°C and 15°C – and gently tap the soft-edged tool in a few small areas to remove as much dirt and debris as possible.

What to do if your laptop got wet?

Most laptops will survive minor drops in water, but serious drops or spills can permanently stain the screen. If your laptop has been completely submerged, use a soft cloth to gently wipe the water and sediment from the screen. Afterwards, dry it off with a clean, damp towel.

What to do if your laptop got splashed?

Splash stains and smudges will not come off just with a damp cloth. If your laptop got splashed with water, it’s time to take the damage control to the next level. This time around, you’re going to use a different cleaning solution and a little more elbow grease.

Using a non-abrasive wipe or polishing pad with a light or medium abrasive, wipe the laptop screen to remove any splashes or scratches.

Why you need a laptop skin?

If you’re really not a fan of cleaning, you might be tempted to simply avoid touching your laptop screen, in hopes that it won’t get scratched. Unfortunately, that won’t do any good at all.

Shiny screens, particularly those with dark plastic like those found on gaming laptops, are especially vulnerable to scratching. A recent survey found that screen protectors for laptops now outsell those for smartphones and tablets by a six-to-one ratio.

So instead of just having a shiny screen, it’s best to protect it with a laptop skin or screen protector. You can also use the same approach for your tablet, although some of these products are a bit too heavy for this application. I like a thin plastic screen protector called GLBL.


Putting in a little extra effort to keep your laptop screen in good condition could save you a great deal of money.
