iMac and dust and cleaning
When the screen is off totally black. I have a ton of dust on the screen. I have used a dry microfiber cloth and as soon as I wipe more dust collects.
Is it safe to use a dry microfiber cloth? Does yours collect dust easily, how do you clean yours? Will a microfiber cloth scratch screen? 2012 late iMac

I had the same problem. It is like a magnet for dust!
After the first couple of cleans with a damp microfibre cloth and buffing with a dry one to get rid of streaks. Just wipe the dust one way across screen!
It gets easier after a while. Something to do with the weird coating apple have applied!!
I don't know why they didn't use the same coating as on the ipad and iPhone. They are a doddle to keep clean and dust free!

Use the microfiber cloth that Apple includes with the iMac. Use it dry.
If you have fingerprints or smudges, dampen a microfiber cloth with water and wipe gently.
The glass has a very thin antireflective coating on the surface, similar to a camera lens. Don't use any cleaning chemicals; they can damage the coating.
Previous iMacs (and iPhones, iPod, iPads, etc.) don't have the antireflective coating, they are just plain glass. You have more options for cleaning them safely.

I use a MF cloth with Stoners Invisible Glass and it seems to cut down on the static electricity on the screen and less dust is attracted.
