    Cleaning iMac Screen
    Okay this may sound wierd, I am really anal about my screen being cleaned, I have always been that way and its almost an OCD. How is the best way to clean an iMac screen? I have the new aluminum 20" iMac, I have been using this LCD cleaning kit that I got for Christmas two years ago, and I have used windex a couple of times. I honestly think I am messing up my screen though, are any of these substances that I used bad for it? If they are can someone maybe suggest something better to use for cleaning. Thanks.

    I've used windex for years on my lcd and it looks brand new still, I wouldn't worry about it wrecking your screen

    I use a damp cloth to wipe it down. I then follow that up with a microfiber cloth to buff out any streaks. No chemicals needed!

    I use Monster Cleaner. It's a blue bottle of liquid and it comes with a cloth. Leaves no streaks. Everything looks perfect. I use it on my iMac, my laptop, and my LCD TV. One bottle has lasted me so far about two years and I have more than half left. It cost like $10 at Best Buy, IIRC.
