Does your screen have a glossy coating on it or is it one of the anti-glare type screens? This makes a difference for the best way to clean it. But really it's difficult to do much harm with just a soft, clean lint-free cloth. I like to use a micro fiber cloth-the kind that comes with sunglasses.

Whatever you do don't use windex or any chemical cleaners like that!
