Whenever I wipe the televison screen or the computer monitor with a tissue paper or a soft cloth , the wiped dust is ALWAYS black ie the tissue or the cloth becomes black, whereas the dust on other things such as a table has its normal brown colour. I live in a very clean area, a very few cars say ten cars pass by in a DAY, and this area is very far from the main city, so there is no question of polution. I was wondering why is that so. The only reason that comes to my mind is that the screen attracts dust, but why it is jet black just like that of pure carbon, whereas the dust on other things is Not black. I have changed three houses in different localities and I had the same problem in all three. I have read on the internet that the dust attracted by the screens is slightly radioactive. HAs anyone noticed the same.
