You can use a solution of water, one drop of dishwashing soap and a small amount of isopropyl alcohol. A clean soft cloth is the key to a clean screen. Those microfiber wipes work really well as they don't leave lint behind.

I've been using microfiber towels for glass cleaning for longer than I can remember. They pretty much have to be used for nothing else and, when washing, make sure you only use detergent and no fabric softener and don't wash them with anything else that might contaminate them. When you notice the screen is no longer getting clean, that's usually when it's time for a new towel and to wash the old one.

And remember - you always spray the towel, never the screen, otherwise you run the risk of the solvent running down the screen and into the TV. Same applies to cleaning mirrors.

As said, alcohol and water or a eyeglass/screen cleaner would work fine.
If you lay the screen on it's back you can get the surface a bit wetter and avoid liquid running into the unit.
You really should not use products labelled as glass cleaner as many are ammonia based and can damage the surface of the screen.
