Default Cleaning LCD Monitors

When one of my CRT monitors gets dirty, i just spray it with some mr sheen and polish it with a tissue or a rag. However i dont know if thats suitable for a LCD monitor. The type that doesnt have the glass top coat, the one with the matte finish. So, how would i clean this type monitor safely?

I'm pretty sure all you have to do with a LCD is use a damp cleaning cloth and wipe. No soap just water, then dry it.
