cleaning lcd monitor

can anyone please suggest a good method of cleaning an lcd monitor please?

Turn off the monitor. If the screen is dark, it will be easier to see the smears and smudges.

Remember the screen is NOT glass. So use a soft, dry, microfiber type cloth and very gently wipe the screen. The sort of cloth used to clean spectacles.

If the dry cloth doesn't completely remove the dirt or finger grease marks, DON'T press harder in an attempt to scrub it off. Pushing directly on the LCD screen can often cause pixels to burn out.

If necessary, dampen the cloth with distilled water or with an equal ratio of distilled water to white vinegar.

stand behind the screen and look down, smears and dust will be easier to see.

My method is free. Pressuming you have some white vinegar in the kitchen. They call it white, although it is in fact clear. It's the sort you use for pickling.

Thanks for the tip although I only use water and a microfibre cloth.

"although I only use water and a microfibre cloth"
Me too. However, I don't touch the screen either with or without greasy, oily fingers and niether does anyone else, in my house. I guess if you did, then the vinegar would provide that extra Oomph!

Though I hope that when the screen starts to warm up you don't start fancying some chips!
