Default How Do You clean Your LCD(clean freak here)

Hi guys. I have my oldie (4yo!) 226bw 22" tft LCD. From time to time I am having a hard fight with it... and I mean.. ITS TERRIBLE!
I have bought a special LCD Cleaning foam in spray can, which is anti static, anti bacterial etc.

So this is how I do it... And I am writing it becouse I feel like Iam doing something wrong.
1)heavy shake applied to the can.
2)Burst of foam onto _ kitchen paper or dry antidust/static cloth(I am mostly using the cloth becouse soft paper is just getting too wet and it "dezintegrates"
3)making a circles on the whole screen applying that cleaning solution until it it vaporizes (around 30 seconds)

now.... confusing me part. After this whole screen is smudged. I hate this. I can apply unlimited amounts and make circles any way and there are stil smudges.

So my solution to this is that, I just keep making that darn circles for like 10 ****ing minutes!!! ITS THE ONLY way I can get rid of any smudges. Its basicly dry cleaning fo 10 or more minutes after foam dries out(all the time same cloth).

Every Youtube video Ive seen is a guy applying alcochol on a cloth and smearing it like up his ass-Thumbs up, job well done. Are they blind?

I am a freak at this. My screen have to be PERFECTLY clean. I am looking at it from every direction to eliminate every smudge. The whole celaning proces might even take up to 20-30 minutes like once a month or two.
How are You doing it people? Is it typical for these screens?
btw. Same goes for netbook screen but it takes way less time becouse of size.

Any really but we have Johnson's once. They're great for most things, even cleaning bits of hardware parts, like dust of fans and such.
