How to remove Fevikwik stains from TV screen and Laptop Screen?

Acetone, commonly found in some nail polish removers, is known to dissolve Fevikwik, a cyano-acrylate adhesive. However, it’s essential to exercise caution while using acetone due to its highly toxic nature.

Moreover, acetone can cause damage to plastic surfaces and may also harm the anti-reflective coating on screens. To test its effect, consider applying acetone to a small, inconspicuous area of the screen. Alternatively, you can experiment on an old broken laptop, TV or mobile phone screen by applying a drop of glue and attempting to remove it with acetone.

While laptop, TV or mobile phone screens are typically made of toughened glass and are less prone to damage, the delicate nature of anti-reflective coatings warrants careful consideration. Rubbing off the coating can result in visible patches on the screen, compromising its overall appearance. Therefore, it’s advisable to proceed with caution and conduct thorough testing before applying acetone to sensitive surfaces.


To effectively remove Fevikwik stains from a laptop, TV or mobile phone screen follow these steps:

1. Begin by powering off the laptop, TV or mobile phone screen and disconnecting it from any power source to ensure safety during the cleaning process.

2. Next, use a microfiber cloth or a soft lint-free cloth to gently wipe away any excess Fevikwik from the screen. Take care not to apply excessive pressure or rub vigorously to avoid damaging the screen surface.

3. Moisten a clean portion of the cloth with a small amount of isopropyl alcohol or a specialized screen cleaning solution. Avoid using water directly on the screen, as it can cause damage.

4. With the dampened cloth, gently wipe the affected area of the screen to remove the Fevikwik stain. Again, avoid applying too much pressure to prevent screen damage.

5. If the Fevikwik stain persists after the initial cleaning, you can consider using a small amount of acetone or nail polish remover containing acetone. Apply the acetone to a clean cloth and carefully dab the stained area. Take precautions to prevent the acetone from contacting other parts of the laptop, TV or mobile phone screen to avoid potential damage.

6. Once the stain has been successfully removed, use a dry, clean cloth to wipe away any remaining residue and ensure the screen is completely dry.

7. Finally, reconnect thelaptop, TV or mobile phone screen to the power source and power it on to resume normal use.

Disclaimer : It’s important to note that while these cleaning methods are generally safe for most laptop, TV or mobile phone screens, they may not be suitable for all screen types or coatings. If you’re unsure or have concerns about your laptop, TV or mobile phone screen’s durability, it’s advisable to consult the manufacturer’s guidelines or seek professional assistance for proper cleaning and maintenance.
