“All you have to do to clean your LCD TV screens is turn the TV off, take the coffee filter and then you want to start dusting in a sweeping motion back and forth until you get every inch of that TV screen.”

The coffee filter hack doesn’t just work on TV screens, in the comments section of her video Pam revealed they are also great at cleaning phone and computer screens.
