    There are as many suggestions for cleaning an LCD monitor screen as there
    are computer users, I think. I am trying to decide on the one correct
    method, if that is possible. To all computer experts: How do you clean your
    very best LCD screen without damaging it in any way?

    You are right, 324,000 selections on google. Sounds like a selection
    you would want to make yourself. Mfg. recommendations might be the best.

    Use a damp, soft, lint-free cloth (do NOT use solvents!), or
    a dry, soft, lint-free cloth with Isopropyl Alcohol applied to
    the cloth ONLY. Clean with straight strokes, in one direction
    only.

    Under NO circumstances should you use ANY of the following,
    or ANY substances based on them:

    Acetone
    Ammonia
    Ethyl Acid
    Ethyl Alcohol
    Methyl Chloride

    Do NOT use paper towels/toilet paper; they are abrasive.
    Do NOT use "Computer Wipes" unless they are specifically
    designed for LCD screens.

    Mike, thanks a lot. I had heard that alcohol should not be used on a screen.
    Maybe the makers of special cleaners don't want you to use that, but to buy
    their expensive product for cleaning.

    It depends on what you mean by alcohol. Isopropyl Alcohol
    is quite safe; not to be confused with other types of alcohol.

    Thanks on both counts. I had not been including part of the letter I am
    answering to. I realize that I need to do so.

    Isopropyl Alcohol is what I meant when I said ""Alcohol."

    Pop in to your local computer store and see what they recommend.
    Here is a link to a product that sounds promising.

    Ok, thanks for doing that, but now you need to include
    an attribution mark ">" for the quoted text.
    Tools / Options / Send ... 'News Sending Format'
    'Plain Text Settings'. Check 'Indent the original
    text with [>] when replying....'

    >Isopropyl Alcohol is what I meant when I said ""Alcohol."


    As I said, Isopropyl Alcohol is quite safe. Most other forms
    of alcohol are not.

    I have heard several lots of rubbish from computer stores, not high
    street/chain stores but specialist dealers over the last year or so.

    I use Servisol Engineers Wipes, which were sold locally as suitable for
    LCDs (website doesn't list them anymore). To clean my screen, make a
    small area slightly damp on the wipe, and wipe across the screen with
    very little pressure in one direction only.
