    What are some good materials to use when cleaning a MacBook screen?

    I've tried water and paper towels, LCD screen cleaner and a micro fiber cloth.



    Thanks.

    Those are the usual suspects. Did they not work? Did you get caramel or paint or something on the screen?

    No, I am letting it air dry now.

    Nothing got on the screen, just finger prints, they came off.

    I use "Dust-Off" Monitor wipes that I got from best buy. They work perfect. Just make sure to squeeze out the excess moisture, or there will be some streaking.

    I use iClean by monster. The kit comes with a couple microfibre towels and a good size bottle of cleaner. Stuff is great, it doesn't streak.
