Soft microfibre cloth (one for cleaning glasses) moistened by few drops of water. Special tissues for cleaning glasses work well too. You don't need any special "cleaning products", furthermore, they might even damage your screen.

I am looking for the best way to clean my 2018 15" MacBook Pro screen. Currently I have Monster cleaner product from https://www.bestbuy.com/site/monster-screenclean-3-0-cleantouch-3-0-clean-and-shield-system/6168805.p?skuId=6168805

Is the Monster cleaner product safe to use on my MacBook Pro or do you recommend something better.
I am not sure about the Screen Clean 3.0, but the older screen clean product used to warn against using it if your panel manufacturer recommends cleaning with water only, which of course Apple does.

"To clean the screen on your MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air, first shut down the computer and unplug the power adapter. Dampen a soft, lint-free cloth with water only, then use it to clean the computer's screen."

If the 3.0 still contains that warning, and even if it does not, I would use with caution if it at all.

Now I am worried about what I used to clean the exterior of my 2018 MacBook Pro. I used a Pledge Multisurface Product https://www.pledge.com/en-us/products/pledge-multisurface-cleaner-trigger

I used that product at least once to clean the outside of my MacBook Pro and the trackpad area. I sprayed the product on microfiber cloth. Do you guys think I should be worried about that product damaging my MacBook Pro?
I don’t think so. The aluminum of the body is going to be far more durable than the thin anti-glare coating of the display.

You could buy a specific aluminum cleanser like Biokleen, but I don’t think you will ever have an issue with Pledge Multisurface

not this one, only "pledge wipes for electronics" is good, safe for LCD and exterior case,
also other good solution is an isopropanol and special cloth for screens or glasses
