What are the suggested products to clean your monitor? Do you really need those specialized products they try to hype at your local techy stores?

You said 90% alcohol. Isn't that just like using rubbing alcohol? Isn't that to hard on the screen? They aren't made out of glass anymore.

Thanks, That is what I will use. I new there had to be something else than those expensive cleaning solutions they try to sell you at places like Circuit City. I think they wanted like 8 bucks for a small bottle of it.

I use a very slightly damp cloth like the ones one uses for ones spectacles, then one can often feel where the sticky bits are, I don't use paper based things at all and I don't over rub a blemish that shows wear, a lot depends on the surface of the screen, mine are mostly old laptops so I am weary not to wear the surface away
