We’ve shown you one way to correctly clean your LCD screen, but technology blog Unplggd shows us that if you misplace your special, lint-free cloth, you can just use a coffee filter.

Unplggd explains:

It turns out that those little rippled cones of blotting paper that filter your morning brew are perfect for clearing the dust from your television screen or computer monitor.

They’ll catch the dust and cut static on the screen, all without leaving behind any fibers like paper towels would.

You likely already have a cloth or two that came with your TV and other LCD screens, but if you misplace it, this trick will do in a pinch. If you’ve got some on hand, let us know how it works for you in the comments.
