I'm a silly sausage. I used alcohol gel to clean my laptop screen at some point in the past. Some residue must have remained when I closed the laptop, creating something that looks like a permanent smudge. The smudge, incidentally, perfectly matches up to the trackpad and a little protrusion in the keyboard.
Cleaning it with a cloth dampened in warm soapy water appears to remove the smudge temporarily, but it reappears when the screen dries, suggesting the alcohol has damaged the outermost layer of the screen.
Is there any way I can lessen the appearance of this damage?
I did not take the OP picture, but it's like a far less extreme case of the attached (a few mm in thickness).
