Yea, I was gonna say beer.

Just not light beer. That will ruin it plus taste awful.


But really, I use microfiber rags.

Laptop screen wipes, they are sold at all the office supply stores. They look just like baby wipes except there not as wet and thick. Under 10 bucks

We clean our aircraft display units with windex wipes (those I think don't have amonia in them).

I spray windex on a good paper towel. Can't remember the brand, but I found some really good paper towels at the grocery store that I use only for windexing stuff...
