    I recently picked up a 42" LCD and have been reading everything from diluted alcohol to class cleaner without ammonia.

    It seems that 50% diluted alcohol with a micro-fiber cloth seems to be the most popular choice, but I wanted to get your guys' opinions first.

    those work pretty good when im cleaning screens, otherwise id just use a dedicatesd lens/screen cleaner

    Swiffer as in cleaning the floor swiffer? That's got alcohol and ammonia in it dude.

    As for the dedicated products, they tend just to be over the counter products in a nice package.

    I was curious to know if there are home products that people use that work just as well as the pretty packaged stuff.

    really? this swiffer feels pretty dry for having alcy and ammonia in it, and huh, its completely odorless, those guys at proctor and gamble are fucking geniuses, its also amazing these hamrful chemicals havent fucked my tv up after years and years of use

    "Dry Cloths are great for: • Wood, tile or vinyl floors • Under beds, tables and cabinets • Inside closets and around closet shelving • Around pet areas • Under appliances • Bookshelves, electronics and plants • Walls and baseboards"

    Use a microfiber towel to remove dust. If there is something sticky on the screen just wet the microfiber cloth with some water and use that.

    Yeah, I've read that just enough water to make a cloth damp is best. Those monitor wipes that you used to use on your big CRTs... use them on CRTs, not on LCDs.

    someone tried to exchange their poineer indash dvd once, because they scratched the hell out of the screen with a swiffer... instead of using the microfiber towel that came with the unit.

    I use Wal Mart's 'Vision Centre' "No Glare" lens (eyeglass) cleaner at work; no alcohol. Free refills. Works wonders, but won't remove scratches.
