    I'm getting crazy with the dust deposited on the screen. I clean my screen monthly but the dust appears daily.
    It's a problem if is too much dust on the screen or am I too crazy ? :confused:

    I clean mine whenever it needs it. If it's just dust, a slightly damp microfiber cloth works nicely. If it needs more than a light dusting. I use just a bit more water on the cloth.

    A few times a week with a microfiber cloth and my breath. For dust I usually have a dust blower close by that I use for my cameras and lenses, and I've been using that lately for the screen.

    What is the best way to clean it? And with what?

    I bought a 2015 rMBP when they first came out. I've heard about the peeling issues on the screen just never looked much into it. On my old 2007 MacBook I'd use anything to clean the screen, windex, water, etc...

    A bit of water on a microfiber cloth. Do NOT use any "window cleaner" - they have chemicals that will destroy the coating on the screen.

    I'm very anal about my screen and have always used this:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Techlink-Keep-Clean-Cleaning-MacBook/dp/B004CJ7Y7M

    It honestly is amazing. Cleans the screen beautifully and comes with a really nice, big microfibre cloth.

    I tend to wipe my screen with a clean cloth a couple times a day and I use the spray perhaps every other day. It lasts for ages. My last bottle lasted over 2 years. Just got a fresh bottle for Christmas.

    Just water and a clean soft cotton t-shirt. Once every three weeks or so. Of course don't overdo the water but in fact the rubber bezel is glued to the screen so not very much can go wrong.

    I've cleaned the screen on my rMBP once since I bought it in April.

    I just do a light dusting with a microfiber cloth. No liquids. Keep my fingers off the screen too.

    My screen is almost always in a clean state. Whenever I see too much dust on it, I clean it with a dry cloth. And when it gets more dirty with little spots from the drinks I spit out when I can't control my laughter, I clean it with a cloth with some water. By the way, before cleaning it make sure you blow all big pieces of dust or other things away from the screen. Otherwise you might rub a dust particle with the cloth which can cause scratches.
