    Sorry for the dumb question but I've lost the manual for my LCD monitor. I've a pretty sleek one so wanna take good care of it. Thus would wanna know how to clean a LCD Monitor coz i see finger prints on it.

    I've tried to clean is using Paper , Cloth (both dry and gently) and nothing worked. How do you keep your LCD Monitor clean ?

    Avoid using any organic solvents (like alcohol).
    It's perfectly safe to gently wipe your LCD with a water-dampened cloth.
    Another one you might have heard of (if you clean windows) is to add a little vinegar to the water and use that - again shouldn't cause any problems.

    Use a windex without ammonia. I dont bother for that and use water-damnpened cloth as mentioned above. Both work wonderfully.

    I use a Rosewill LCD screen cleaner, it came with a spray and a cleaner and I like it a lot!

    NEVER use any kind of alcohol on it!

    That's what I was thinking... I just wipe mine off with a sleeve sometimes :)

    It's been working for over two years so far...

    I think the best thing to use is a soft cloth slightly dampened with water.
