Ok, so I'm getting pretty fed up with the fingerprints on my laptop screen, as well as the dust sticking to it. Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best way to get that sort of thing off?

i use glasses cleaning wipes....don't know if i'm supposed to...but it's just alcohol based so it shouldn't muck with anything....try to stay away from the "anti glare" type though...that anti glare solution can attract more dust

I've heard that OmniCleanz works really well. My Dad actually uses it and says it's pretty good stuff! It's perfectly safe for your monitor, doesn't smell, and doesn't leave any streaks.

I always though MOM spit and a kleenex would clean just about anything :)

I just use window cleaning spray. I spray some on a paper towel then wipe it very quickly in circular motions so it doesn't leave stains.

I would not use anything alcohol based or even non alcohol based cleaner on mine, I find a [bleep] papertowel works good. Or just dont touch the screen :)

Well, I don't generally smear my sticky fingers on my screen - I have five little siblings who do that sort of thing :)
