A damp, clean, lint free cloth works very well and is inexpensive

I use iKlear Apple Polish. http://klearscreen.com/detail.aspx?ID=12

It's a little expensive but is the best LCD screen cleaner I have come across so far. It will remove smudges and scuffs on the screen and leave it looking brand new! It also buffs up the Apple "white (or black)" finish really well.

And I don't just use it on my iMac, I use it to clean my iPod and my Windows PC & Laptop's displays. Its awesome. AND It comes recommended by Apple!

Regards,

Chris :mac:

By the way, I just checked, and iKlear is available at Amazon.com for only $14.99 per 8 oz bottle, vs. the $20+ they are looking for at their own site.

Unless you live in a household with smoking, or lots of deep fat fried cooking, is there really a need for it? I can't see that grime would ever build up on an LCD surface in most other cases. I have never used anything but a soft dry cloth on my LCDs, which I have used for years, and that is pretty much just for dusting. What is other people's experience?

Sometimes idiots come over and put fingerprints on it. And theyre remarkably hard to get off with just a dry cloth. aarrrggg!!!

She figured out that the only way to keep from being frozen was to stay in motion,
and long ago converted most of her flesh into liquid.
Now when she smells danger, she spills herself all over, like gasoline, and lights it.

I get kid-sized fingerprints all over my LCD... can't imagine how they get there

I've some Plastic Cleaner spray that came from RS Components a few years ago and that, along with a microfibre cloth, does a very nice job and gets rid of all the greasey marks in no time.

Though if the marks continue to appear I may have to try a sharp knife instead....

Not to mention the rogue, wild untamed sneeze here and there... *Rolleyes*

I used Monster's iClean for a while but in the long run, I saw it left behind a weird smeared build-up so now I use Kensington's Screen Guardian and it cleans really well, no oily build-up.

I put a 50/50 mix of denatured alcohol (from Home Depot/Lowes) and water in a spray bottle and use that with a cloth diaper -- works perfectly on LCD displays and glass (and is essentially what's in the majority of "custom" LCD sprays, along with propylene glycol).
