My 4 year old laptop screen has several marks, most likely kids sticky fingers. Any ideas on how to clean it?

Use a damp cloth (Not wet)

You are only advised to use a Soft dry cloth by Laptop makers

Do not press hard

Oh no! damp or dry. Seriously, dry dosen't seem to get the worst of it off. To dampen or not to dampen, that is the question.

Also while we're at it sticky touchpad anybody?

Do NOT use any form of surface cleaner glass cclenres or alchol based cleaners as they "melt" the surface of the screen.

A "moist" cloth rub very lightly will do the job

I usually find if the marks don't appear to be comming off I need to clean my glasses aswell :0)

I am glad I kept the celluloid over mine

Better still, keep it in the box.
