I would suggest using a cotton bud, and IPA, (iso propyl alcohol) if available, and be very gentle with the cotton bud.

another easy available product eucalyptus oil
as joe r says use a cotton bud when removed use
a LCD screen wipe to remove oil.

suprised you sugested iso propyl alchol
(Prpan2ol) not easily available and quite dangerous.

Its not dangerous unless you drink a lot of it, it is used as a slovent in a lot of food flavours. Also it is sold as tape head cleaner or disk drive cleaner.

I bought isopropyl alcohol at my local chemist. They had to send off for it and it cost just over £5 for 500ml, the smallest amount they could get. Yes I was warned about how to use and store it and it is a great multi task fluid. hic ;-))
