    Go to a computer or office supply store. They will have a spray can you can use. I use one made by Pledge.

    You can use a dry paper towel-might help but i think the water could damage your monitor.

    I just found the best cleaning solution ... I was lazy one day & purchased some Glass Plus Wipes.
    They work sooooo well on of all parts of the computer system (the exterior) ... monitor, case, keyboard. I don't know how I did without them! no lint, no drips ... perfect.
    cheers

    I notice that most folks didn't take notice of the fact that this is an LCD monitor. You want to be extra careful not to use anything abrasive on that surface. Paper towels are bad, and dry ones are VERY BAD! I'd use soft cloth and a cleaner for plastic, since that's what is on the surface of the monitor. I'd also not get carried away with pressure, since you can damage the TTF elements with excessive pressure.

    yup - I noticed the LCD monitor ... I use the Glass Plus wipes on mine (after a buddy sneezed - lol) first... it left no streaks nor lint and took almost no pressure at all, worked great in the corners.

    When it worked so well here, I tried it on my big machine and it was fabulous! btw - I used it on my pc after cleaning with a product I bought at a computer supply store ... and I was happily surprised by all of the ick that the wipes got from the 'clean' machine.

    :D
    Happy sunday all!
    cheers
