What's the best way to clean a laptop screen without damaging the screen?

I usually use "Window Cleaner" to clean my computer monitor (computer screen)..lol. Is that okay?

If you can, you should use one of those microfiber things people use for their glasses. If a dry cloth didn't work, use plain water on a damp cloth. I've heard people use a solution of half water and vinegar too. And never press too hard. I don't think you're suppose to use window cleaner though but I wouldn't freak out if the screen looks ok.

It could cause streaks in the screen if left on to long. They make a wipe kinda like a baby wipe just for cleaning a computer screen.

Don't use too much. Don't spray it on the screen, on the cloth. Do it softly and make sure nothing gets into the sides. If it happens, clean it off softly.Let it air dry a little too. I clean mine with the same thing and its fine. :)

You can buy "wet" wipes specifically for electronics at many stores (Wal-Mart, Target).

You could use a microfiber cloth or spray the windows cleaner on a cloth and wipe it..... I use the microfiber cloth because its soft and cleans my laptop screen good and it leaves no scratch marks or anything.:)
