Default What do I use to clean my LCD monitor screen?

I think the title says it all. If it makes any difference its a Samsung SyncMaster 712n. I have some endust anti static wipes but I am worried the chemicals might do something to the suface of the screen. Thanks in advance for any help.

I clean mine with glass cleaner on a papertowl. You have to be careful though and spray the glass cleaner only on the papertowl, have a second papertowl to dry off the glass. I would also recommend that you turn the monitor off before cleaning.

DO NOT spray on the monitor!!!!!

100% cotton cloth and distilled water. Gentle sweeping motions.

Works beautifully. BTW, you can use canned air to clear some of the dust off before you do this. But don't hold the can upside down and keep the nozzle at least 8" back from the display.

Papertowel and water... (im sure distilled water is even better). Thats all i use on my CRT and all i would on my future LCD.
