Monitor Screen Cleaning

Hi all, does anyone know how to clean a tft monitor screen without leaving lines.
I ask because my screen was getting dirty so I bought some proprietry screen wipes which cleaned it fine, but when it's turned off you can see all the lines where I've gone up & down with the wipe and they won't wipe off. It seems ok when it's on but every time I pass the monitor when it's turned off, it bugs me !

I use slightly damp kitchen roll, been using this very simple but effective method for a long time works perfectly for me, no need to buy all these specialist cleaning solutions and cloths, "waste of time"...

Baby wipes then a dry tissue

My youngest "Baby" is 35 so I'm just out of wipes but I'll have a go at both of the suggestions

Many Thanks

I use a micro fibre duster diped in water then wrung out. It is the yellow one that you can buy from Marks & Spencer for a couple of quid, and I never had a problem yet!

Isopropyl Alcohol. Available at any chemist and cheap. If you read the manual that came with your monitor I'm sure it will mention it in there somewhere.
