The best thing to use is a monitor cleaner. The good stuff has anti-static protection built-in to it, so it stays clean longer. I forget who makes them now, but there are some wipes you can get that do the same thing. I don't recommend using Windex as it has ammonia in it. It won't really hurt the screen, but it's not good for it either. If you use a Windex-type product, try to use one that is ammonia free.

Good luck!

I have used windex myself without problems but I don't recommend it since I believe the amonia could cause the plastic to discolor.

Many manufacturers just recommend lightly wiping it with a damp cloth.

Main thing to remember is be gently. To much pressure on the screen can damage it so just you common sense while wiping it.
