You can use qtips or soft brushes. I usually use a qtip and a microfiber towel. Work very well.

Only use Windex on GLASS monitors, do NOT use on LCD's. It will mess up the finish.

i use a BLUE microfiber cloth with WARM distilled water i ring the cloth out tightly and dont use no pressure on the screen just gently wipe in a circular motion and the screen comes up like new no smears, what you have to be careful about is not getting ANY water droplets (or any liquid) in the bottom or sides where the screen is fixed into the bezel , it will shorten out and "ping" no more screen!!!!.

Mix the water and alcohol 50/50. Spray onto the cloth. Wipe down the screen and the laptop.

It's super cheap and practically identical to the much higher priced store wipes and such. You will have cleaning solution for a couple of years as you will go through it slow.
I have made this solution a many times; however while using it I get streaks, it works much better if you use 99% isopropyl alcohol. Note: In some places you cannot buy 99%, using 95% or 92% works almost as well. -WS

I don't think that I would use Windex. Too much amonia in that product.

Huh...I've never had any issues with streaks. I make this stuff at work and 30-40 people use it on a daily basis. I'm using 70% isopropyl.

Hummm, maybe it is the brand?? Unknown, the bottle I have hear in the 70% type states 70% isopropyl alcohol, 25% water, and 5% other. Maybe that 5% other is what is causing the issues??? The 99% is 99% isopropyl alcohol 1% other. I know that 1% of it is poison so that people will not drink it as cheap drinking alcohol.
