    I just use a damp microfiber cloth. Works wonders.

    I would use RadTech ScreenSavrz to clean your screen it is alot better then a microfiber cloth where as a microfiber cloth leaves small lints on your screen...and Radtech does not...

    Stoners Invisible Glass and a MF towel.

    Too bad you cant use it as a screen protector anymore. Apple does not recommend putting anything between the lid and keyboard.

    This is not a way to clean the screen but to keep it clean. I use a matte screen protector on my iPhone 5 and although it diminishes the color an sharpness, it really makes the traction so much smoother, fights reflection, and reduces smudges by a lot.

    I use rocks, knives, and pre-dampened bullets to clean my Retina Display I highly recommend this method. Regular Papertowels could leave scratches.

    So true. So true. I like using .224 shells personally, I find them bigger with more coverage than pistol shells of any kind. .50 cal is too big, leaves residue and streaks at times.

    RadTech OmniCleanz. It cleans displays, camera lenses, eyeglasses, keyboards... you name it. It is non-conductible when used on low-voltage electronics so you don't have to be as concerned about damaging a device.

    Ammonia-based products with water as the main ingredient? No thanks!

    I agree. I had the same issue with those. They work great on glasses, but I won't use one anywhere near my display again. I wouldn't use the Stoners Invisible Glass mentioned above either. I have some at home and it works great on glass and mirrors but contains alcohol.

    I have used Purosol Screen Cleaner and have not had any issues. I don't see anything in the MSDS that would be harmful and have used their lens cleaner on camera lenses with no problems.
