    Does anyone use any of these monitor wipes? This is one I was looking at:
    http://www.cleansweepsupply.com/page...roup26191.html
    The line "Not for use on nylon mesh/polarized antiglare screens." is what's concerning me.

    I understand about how these chemicals can damage screens and their anti-glare coating, so is there really anything that can clean screens well without damaging them?

    My big problem is at work. The cleaning crew sometimes uses a wet cloth to clean my monitor and the streaks are pretty bad. I said something to my boss and she has informed the cleaning people not to clean the monitor screens, but I need something in case it happens again. I tried just a damp cloth, but it wasn't the easiest thing to get clean. Also, I have to deal with people constantly touching my screen with their oily fingers [​IMG]

    Is the best advice to avoid these cleaners altogether? Or is there something that is "safe"? I have one of the first Black Dell monitors. The 19" Trinitron. I forget if it has an anti-glare coating on it. I assume most do now a days?

    Any thoughts?

    plain water and a soft lint-free cloth works wonders.

    I've never used any type of liquid to clean my monitor. I always use a soft dry cloth and it takes everything right off.
