    Proper way to clean screen???
    Hey guys.....

    I'm trying to keep the best care as possible to my macbook pro..... I have a few small smudges on my screen. Its the 15.4-inch (viewable) widescreen
    1440 x 900 pixels..... Not the glossy screen.

    What is the best way to clean it?

    To be honest, the best way to clean the screen is with a damp cloth. You don't really need to waste money on all those fancy cleaners. Plus, in many cases, they can actually ruin the screen instead of cleaning it.

    A damp cloth is best for dust and light dirt, but it won't remove greasy finger prints, like those left by my two-year-old. For that I use Spic n' Span Cinch. I've been using it on laptop screens for years and never had a problem. It's a common household glass cleaner that is ammonia-free (this is key) and is available just about anywhere. It leaves the screen streak-free and looking like new. (I know this sounds like a commercial), but I'm enamored with the stuff - kind of like the father from "My Big, Fat Greek Wedding". I use it on everything
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Lightbulb Eye-glass cleaner
    Don't use Windex or other regular glass cleaner... laptop screens have anti-glare and scratch and whatever coatings that regular glass cleaner will remove (slowly).

    Prescription eye-glass or sunglass cleaner is good. It is a lighter solution that is made for surfaces with protective coatings.


    Edit: and a very soft cloth. Not paper towel.

    If you want to spend $20 for something really good, I recommend
    iKlear. More of a polish, it will do more justice for your screen than
    most ordinary cleaners will.

    Look on AMAZON.COM for iKlear (or
