•Never use window cleaners, harsh chemicals or cleaning solvents on your tablet.
•Never spray anything directly on to the screen.
•To clean the screen on your tablet, use a soft, lint-free cloth. Never use a paper towel or other paper-based towels as they
can scratch the screen. For fingerprint smudges, dust, and lint, wipe the screen gently using a dry microfiber cloth.
•For more stubborn contaminants or stains, turn your tablet off. Lightly dampen a section of a microfiber cloth with water
and gently wipe the screen, then go over it again with a dry section of the cloth to wipe away any moisture. Avoid getting
moisture in any openings. If the stain remains, you can also try using a mild soap-and-water solution. When your tablet is
completely dry, turn it on.
