You have to be careful doing this. The wrong type of wipes could degrade the coating on the panel.

Yep. This or Pec Pads with non-alcohol and non-ammonia eye glasses cleaner. Treat your LCD like an expensive camera lens and you can't go wrong.

Yeah, I don't always use them to wipe my LCD, only if it gets really grubby for some reason

i just use a damp paper towel with water, and a dry paper towel to dry it. Works perfectly.

I did that once and it killed me slowly. Leaves a nasty residue and smear marks, if your display isn't glass covered it will scratch the surface aswell.

Can just grab a typical microfiber cloth from your automotive store. You can also find microfiber dish towels. I have a microfiber screen cleaner and it is too resistant to water to really use to clean spots off with.

I just take and pour distilled water (or drinking water) onto a microfiber cloth and wipe. Since it's just pure water the little bit that is left after using a microfiber cloth will just evaporate away not leaving any residue. I've tried Isopropyl wipes and they either smear or don't really do a good job cleaning. A damp microfiber cloth is the best solution I've used.

sometimes, glasses or contact lens places give them away for free, or very cheap.

Depends on each person i guess. I did it on my old Viewsonic 17" and fiber from the towel stays on the display and caused even more dust, could see the streak marks when the display was off. Water also has chlorine in so I would recommend distilled.
