Default Q - Cleaning my LCD

I was wandering if there was any way to clean and take off the smudges on my LCD 19inch philips without using professional tools.

I currrently have at home:

A normal cloth
Alcohol
Vinegar


Any ideas?

Use a 50/50 mix of isopropyl alcohol (regular rubbing alcohol) and a lint-free cloth.

Oops, I meant a 50/50 mix of isopropyl alcohol and water. xD

Isopropyl alcohol is rubbing alcohol.

Nah, just use a wet towel. You cant really hurt an LCD unless you somehow have a seizure while wiping it down and poke through it.
