How can you clean a LCD monitor?

My monitor seems to have alot of smudges and fingerprints on them you cant see it when its on but its is really annoying for me. What should i use to clean it with? Can i use a microfiber cloth and some water and would that damage the display?

This is my personal favorite I've had this for at least three years and still have a half a bottle left. Monster Cable - TV Screen Cleaning Kit - TV CLNKT

Bongo's link was to Best Buy.

Monster cables are ridiculously overpriced. Their cleaning products may be the same. Like the cables, they probably work well.

I read someplace that distilled water is preferred over tap water.

I read someplace else not to use anything alcohol based, and don't use glass cleaner.

What I ended up using was the same spray stuff that I got from Sams Club to clean eye glasses and used the same cloth that came with it.

You can probably get something similar at Walmart or Target and you'll get a lot more for your money than you'll get for anything made for LCDs and sold at Best Buy. Guarantee that.

I use regular tap water from a small spray bottle and a microfiber cloth, and it does just fine. However, I suppose that it would depend on the quality of your local water supply.

EDIT: Use a spray bottle with a small spray pattern, which dispenses the water in a fairly fine mist, so that the water doesn't run down the screen and inside the monitor.

I spray the rag, not the screen.
