My 15" laptop LED screen has got dirt and sand particles in the corners around the sides, nothing can reach that place, and I can't use sharp or pointed objects to penetrate these narrow areas, is there any other trick I may use to remove these stubborn dirt particles, I'm afraid if I don't get rid of them immediately they may become permanent....

Hey Stevey!



Give a round toothpick a try.

Dip the tip in water (not too long or it will become too soft to work with) and just scrub the corners softly

until the dirt comes off then, use a soft tissue over a another toothpick (not dipped in water) to finish the

job.

Hi. Try a damp Q-Tip.

Well won't it push it even deeper into the corners?
