How is your advice in cleaning computer screens?

I have used my eyeglass cloth and a cleaning solution which is non alchohol.  I don't see it while using the computer but if I shine a torch over it I see it.  Am I asking too much?

I've never tried this myself, my screen all have glass onto of the screen itself, but use dish soap and water to clean it. 


Put a super small amount of dish soap in some water, and give the screen a bit of a wipe down (obviously don't soak it, just on the bits that need it). Then wipe it down with clean water to remove any soap and dry with another microfibre cloth. Dish soap is good at breaking down oils, which is probably the cause of the smudges since our fingers are laden with the stuff.

I have never had much luck with any sort of screen cleaner solution. A slightly damp cloth with a bit of dishwasher soap, or pledge also works well

Yes.

Disconnect monitor from the power.

Use a weak and warm detergent solution sparingly applied with a soft cloth.

Apply in horizontal stripes, top-down.

/edit.. forgot to add .. those microfiber cloths work perfectly in my experience.

I know you are not supposed to use it, but a small amount of window cleaner on a microfiber cloth works really well
