In the days before digital projectors and liquid crystal display (LCD) TVs, small businesses turned to old-style slides and roll-up Radiant projection screens to display presentations. If light from a projector hits a dirty Radiant screen, you see unsavory splotches and residue covering your images. The screen can be wiped down for optimal viewing in a matter of minutes, but because Radiant screens aren't as tough as modern-day equipment, they require greater care when cleaning.


Step 1

Brush the screen with a soft-bristled brush or lint-free cloth to remove surface debris and dust.

Step 2

Add one or two drops of non-moisturizing dish detergent to a bucket of water.

Step 3

Dip a cellulose sponge into the cleaning solution. Squeeze the sponge out to remove excess water. Wipe down the entire screen with the wet sponge.


Step 4

Dry the screen with a chamois. Continue to wipe the surface until it's completely dry to avoid water spot formation.
