    Spend the extra bucks and buy a specialized cleaner. Ordinary ammonia
    (and other chemicals) containing cleaners like Windex will damage it.

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

    Under NO circumstances use any of the following, or substances
    based on them:

    Acetone
    Ammonia
    Ethyl Acid
    Ethyl Alcohol
    Methyl Chloride

    Do NOT use paper towels - they are abrasive.
    Only use "Computer Wipes" if they are specifically for LCD.

    There are products specificly for LCD screens.

    AFTER you've cleaned it, you could consider
    putting clear saranwrap over it - they actually
    DO this in some machine shops that have grinding
    dust and lubricant vapor in the air!-)
