    I use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to get the dust off the screen. I'm very careful to NOT scrub or press too hard with the brush. I just let the suction do most of the work.

    Then I use a very soft, slightly damp cloth to get the spots off the screen. This combo has worked very well for ~4 years now.

    You can get the soft cloths in the automotive section at Target or Wal Mart. They are white, terry cloth towels that are very soft to the touch....don't use anything too abrasive on your monitor.

    99% alcohol and a microfiber cloth

    windex will eat away any anti-glare coating you have on your monitor as it contains amonia.

    Odd. Ammonia is a good cleaner because each molecule is statically-charged. The same is true for water. Are you sure you're not thinking of 409, which contains industrial degreasers?
