Default cleaning my monitor.

Ok I have 2 LCD monitors and they are getting pretty dirty. What are some safe ways I can clean them without scratching or damaging them.

If you are talking about the glass,
a good normal glass cleaner with a soft cloth should do the trick nicely.

Though don't use too much of the stuff... you don't want streaks

There are some anti static wipes you can buy from computer stores.

Yes, I agree. You can use glass cleaner for the LCDs too. Don't let the solution go down into the crevice where the frame is. Light spray and wipe with a rag.

Default Well...

Spray the rag then wipe. Spraying in to any device is asking for trouble.

The best thing I have found is the little prepackaged moist towels that come with fast food to wipe your hands with. They clean any thing rather well. And smell good to boot...
