    Have you used vinegar before to clean an LCD screen?

          You used the name-brand Windex and it left streaks? SUE! No but seriously, in my experience, vinegar works better than the off brands, but Windex shines! I have never had problems with Windex streaking, only the offbrands. If there are streaks with windex, it's cause it isn't clean and there are oils left to be rubbed off, and it usually takes elbow grease.

              I have 'ed the boards about this, some people wont put any liquid of any kind on the screen. They just use a 100% cotton cloth.

              Tried that and got about 30% of the oily crap off the screen.

              Gonna try Pine Sol and sandpaper next.....

                  use those alcohol wipes for LCD screens. you can get them at any computer store.

                    You guys are brave. I personally would only use a GOOD microfiber cloth and water. It will get anything off that you could possibly have on your screen from normal use.

                    Windex, vinegar, etc are all not really 'designed' to clean plastic surfaces. If you really want to use a cleaner, use maguires clear plastic cleaner, and/or clear plastic detailer/polisher. Another plastic cleaning product I used is called brillianize. It also works good at cleaning clear plastics and leaves a very anti-static "smooth as ice" feel.

                      I use windex all the time on stuff like this, but good luck with that. I would recommend not using a paper towel though, as they live little fibers behind.

                        If I remember right, windex is NOT good to use on any sort of monitor as it will destroy any anti-glare coating. I'm not sure but straight rubbing alcohol may do the same (I'd dilute it). I use a small microfiber cloth that came with my watch (I use it for everything but the watch, it seems), and it works like a charm. Picks up all the oil with no problems.
                        The only problem is that I'm not sure where you'd normally get them. It's possible they carry them at eyeglass places. I did a quick bit of searching so here's a couple links:
                        answers.google.com:microfiber
                        http://www.neatitems.com/micro.htm
                        Please understand that I've never used the neatitems store, but they sell the microfiber 'optical' cloths for a couple bucks. Might be worth a try, they're really handy especially if you wear glasses.
