Best way to clean an LCD screen? - Page 2

Do NOT use windex!

Water alone with a plain white paper towel should be fine. You can dry with a microfiber cloth if you'd like.

Use a lint free damp cloth. Do not use any cleaner with Ammonia in it. Ammonia will make the screen look hazy and ruin it.

TechTip: Cleaning Your LCD Monitor or TV
Now that you have your new LCD Monitor or Widescreen TV, it is important to use the right products to clean it. The wrong cleaner can damage the surface of your display. However, there are many new cleaning products on the market designed especially for LCD displays. We recommend using a soft, lint-free cloth and a special LCD cleaner. (You can also use a cleaner that contains any of the following: Water, Vinegar (mixed with water), or Isopropyl alcohol). BUT Do Not Use cleaners that contain any of the following agents: Acetone, Ethyl alcohol, Ethyl acid, Ammonia, Methyl chloride! Important: Do not spray any liquids directly on the LCD screen. Always apply the solution to your cloth first, not directly to the parts you are cleaning. Always use a soft cotton cloth. Some materials, such as paper towels or old rags can cause scratches and damage the LCD screen.

Just get a cloth wet and wipe your monitor in one direction, make sure it's OFF too.
