    So I'm stupid and I smudged my MacBook glossy screen. I tried to clean it with a cloth, but it left more smudges (oy!). What would be the best thing to use to clean my glossy screen with? I'm terrified of using Windex and ruining it.

    Water and then clean it off with a towel. Atleast that's what I do with my MacBook Pro screen.

    Use a little bit of water, and try and wipe the smudge off, not around.

    microfiber cloths work wonders. I have one of the Radtech Screensavrz and it works great at removing smudges from the casing and screen and it keeps the dirt and oil that gets on the keyboard from the screen.

    A mixture of 50% distilled water and 50% rubbing alcohol. Dries fast, and low chance of shorting out components if you spill a bit. Also, works great as a skin oil dissolver.
