i splurged and got some Monster ScreenClean LCD spray and a microfiber cloth. The spray itself wont run so no worries there. Works like a dream with the cloth

Not necessary but I like my screen immaculate.

I use a soft pink (lol) cloth that came with my sharp 32" lcd. Its a glossy screen, so it needs extra attention.

But dont you need to find out if your screen is porus or not? if it is that means anything wet is a no no because the screen will draw in any liquids
