    iKlear and/or Micro-fiber cloth

    I wouldn't recommend Windex wipes on a computer.

    What model is this? One with a piece of glass over the LCD or not?

    I've been using them for years with no ill effect.

    For all my screens, I use Monster iClean. It removes all dirt and dust without leaving any streaks. I highly recommend it.

    And with all cleaners, make sure to spray the solution on your cleaning cloth and not directly on your screen! ;)

    omnicleanz is what I use. I made the big mistake of zymoling my little pro. It left swirls. Omnicleanz took all of the swirls out and made it shine like a new one, fresh outta the box..

    You have two options, replace the LCD or do this:

    An LCD is an LCD, so forget the fact that the link shows a PC. Just find out how the take the LCD out for your model of MacBook.

    I hope you sort it. I did this once and managed to do the above to fix it. It worked for me. Still running fine now.

    Good luck!

    Awesome. Exactly what I read, too. Hilarious image. Maybe I'm just hungry.

    To the OP, get some Stoner's Invisible Glass for future use. Best glass cleaner I've ever used. I believe Target carries it. I use it for everything. Really great stuff.

    No bleach, no amonia. Don't spray anything directly on the screen.

    The iKlear instructions say to spray directly on the screen and then 'polish' it.

    Am I doing something wrong?
