You can clean it with a soft T-shirt. I try not to use anything like windex or anything like that on my computer screen.

Good question. I've found that a very slightly damp cloth (lint free of course) works well. Trick is to avoid getting it dirty in the first place. Another way is to use those alcohol swabs out of first aid kits, just don't rub too hard. Avoid "moist towelettes" from the rib joint as that will leave a soapy residue.

Just go into OfficeDepot/Staples/CompUSA/BestBuy/etc... they have wipes specifically designed for Laptop LCD Screens. They're cheap & worth it, I use them all the time with my 20 some laptops (I 'do' computers for a living)...

I wouldn't use a Tshirt unless you have nothing else and you get mud on the screen... it will scratch.

In all the years I have worked with computer hardware, I have tried a bunch of things and the one thing that works best for me is I use watered down windex (@50/50) and a soft cloth on both my laptops and monitors. Very light misting and it all cleans up fine. Laptops, monitor, windows... does it all and rarely leaves any streaking.
