    anyone else have trouble with people putting their greasy fingers on their displays?

    my worst mark is a 3 fingered smudge from my nephew (I wouldnt have let him get that close but my wife was keeping him entertained on photobooth!)

    what do people find is the best way to clean LCD screens?

    I've been using some "Fellows" screen wipes bought from my local office supplies place on my macbook - came out pretty well but if I hold the screen at the right angle while its off I can see some residue. I believe Apple reccommends "iKlear" - I will be buying some of this to try it out.

    I take the microscope lens cleaning paper from my lab and use distilled water.

    rubbbing alcohol. It dries really fast and will bring up dirt and smudges with no smeering or water marks.

    I've heard that a liquid you can find at your local chemical supply store cleans really well, I think it's HCl. But don't get the diluted stuff, and make sure you apply it with your bare hands.

    The Apple guide says to not use Alcohol and most screen cleaning products boast that they do not contain alcohol.

    Use the juices you get from a freshly roasted chicken. Gives it a real nice shine ;)

    But seriously, iKlear is good. Anything with "i" infront of its name must be good :D
