    "I got some yanky stuff yo".

    ;)

    on my screen. I've tried getting it off with the old spit 'n polish but that just makes it worse.

    If there a free household solution for this kind of stuff?
    Also what about my macbook's screen. It's also bad.

    I use a lens cloth and a little bit of water on my LCD's. I don't trust the $20 bottles of LCD cleaner.
    If you want some good chemical type cleaners use iKlear or Klear Screen. Found here>

    VERY light water. Just enough to moisten part of the cloth.

    Yes,

    Nothing beats a damp micro-fibre cloth, and a dry one to prevent smudges. Just make sure that everything is turned off when you do your dusting...

    I usually say that Monster-brand products are overpriced, overhyped crap that no one should ever buy. That's because... Monster-brand products are overpriced, overhyped crap that no one should ever buy. But the one exception I have to make is their screen cleaning kit. It comes with a gigantic super-soft cloth and a solution (some sort of distilled water/polymer mix) that gets out most any smudge, yet is gentle on screens. I've used it on every bit of electronics I have. I love the stuff. It's $20, which seems pretty steep for a cloth and a bottle of goo, but it does the job and seems to last forever.

    Odd that the one product Monster makes that I can pimp with a clear conscience is the one product they never advertise on their own.

    @MacMontana: Point taken, but I'll vouch for this one. :)
