    A slightly damp lint-free rag or the eye-glass cloth I keep in my laptop bag.

    You should not EVER use Windex or other glass cleaner on LCD screens.

    I use camera lens / eye glasses cleaner spray, but sprayed onto a lint free cloth then wiped on.
    I do this with any monitor, LCD and CRT

    The ammonia in most commercial glass cleaners can seriously damage LCD screens. It can cause the LCD to fog over and dull. Its similar to why you should never use Windex on a car's tinted windows.

    Remember, they're glass cleaners and LCDs are not glass. :bigthumb:

    .

    I use industrial cleaners at work to clean customer's displays, they work really well. Downside is it costs $10 a bottle. The worst products out there are the LCD cleaning wipes. They get dry very quickly and barely clean, don't get suckered into buying them.

    Best thing to clean a computer body is WD-40 or Flux cleaner. It will literally get anything off. Just make sure you clean all the residue off afterwards.
