i have a samsung 206bw. the best monitor i have ever had. cleaning is a bitch.

that ridiculous little blue cloth just doesnt cut it. just wait until you have a cold, then are eating peanut butter toast in front of the monitor.

bet you can guess what happened next. ssssnnneeeeeeeezzze!!!!!!!!

like i said the blue cloth doesnt work too well on used peanut butter. i used and continue to use windex and toilet paper. spray the windex onto the paper first of course.

monitor cleaners i have seen are nothing more than aclohol and water

you used windex on an lcd i know windex can sometimes take off the reflective or matte coating of your lcd, so i would pick up some lcd cleaner from future shop or best buy, it works wonders (i even used it to take glue off from a laptop sticker once).

I hope you were joking.

EDIT - I use a lint less cloth and water. Just damp not sopping wet. Common sense rules the day.

If it's just dust, Swiffer pads work great. Not so good for PB+snot, tho.
