I just use a lint-free cloth. Like the ones, used to clean eye glasses.

Meh, I use the alcohol wipes I have from a free (after rebate) giveaway a couple years back. They just keep going and going... but the thing to note is these don't mention LCD screens. Old fashioned I suppose!

And when I can't find 'em, a dab of water works great (with any tissue etc.). I probably break every LCD cleaning rule that ever did exist.
