Buy some LCD/Plasma cleaner or screen wipes - you will be able to get this from an office stationary store or anywhere along the lines of Noel Leeming, Harvey Norman etc..

Don't use regular glass clealer - the ammonia can eat away at the coating on the screen.

I use these from DSE on my laptops:

One is a wet wipe to get all the grime, fingerprints, etc off and the second is a dry wipe to dry it all off. I think they do a good job.

  I've found many wipes etc to leave marks or smear or even leave a 'film' over the screen.

I clean all my LCD's (desktop and laptop) using a sponge cloth (the sort that come in 3 packs for the kitchen) that has been washed well under very hot water, then squeezed thoroughly before wiping the screens in straight lines. Then once around the edges.

I use this stuff here, I find it works better at removing built up dirt than regular screen wipes.

I use 100% alcohol wipes (from work) and it does a fantastic job, the residue alcohol just disipates by itself
