    I have the Panisonic 53wx52 with the protective screen. What is the best cloth for cleaning the screen? How about cleaning solution?

    thanks

    Best cloth would be an old soft cotton t-shirt preferably one that's been washed several times. Solution would be lukewarm water - distilled water don't leave haze - with a drop of mild dishwashing liquid.

    No!

    A much softer cloth is required. Go to your nearest eye specialist now. I only use lense-grade cloths to clean those sorts of surfaces.

    Are you guys using these methods to clean the screen when there is just dust or when there is actual stuff on the screen?

    Both. Ultimately, though, you can't go wrong with soap and distilled water. And a very, very soft cloth.

    well worn (and washed) cloth baby diaper. best game in town.

    also, i'm not so sure about that 3m product? doesn't that stuff usually contain high amounts of alcohol to prevent the streaking? i'd be worried that stuff would mess up the screen...

    I've used the 3M screen wipes for over 2 years now. Seems pretty good, haven't noticed any problems.

    are those screen wipes okay to use if you DO NOT have a protective screen? I have a couple fingerprints in the corner for some reason and I want them gone!

    Toshiba makes this claim. Is it true? (I've seen on the Forums that the shield produces MORE glare, not less.) ........

    "TheaterShield™ AR
    This protective shield features a scratch resistant coating, as well as an anti-reflective layer that reduces reflectivity by over 50 percent, thereby reducing glare.
    Benefit: Screen protection, improved contrast and fewer distracting reflections."

    Question: Can a "Swiffer" cloth be used on these protective screens without doing any damage?
