I have talked to them years ago about this and here's a samsung rep on a forum
to use an LCD cleaner with no acohol or abrasives, and a microfiber cloth
and here's where it's from
Proper way to clean an LCD TV - CNET Samsung Forums

One quick note here, I would try to avoid using paper towels as they are made from wood fiber which might make micro scratches on plastic or glass. This is why it's not recommended to use it on eye glasses. Micro fiber or lint free cloth would be much better.

I've been cleaning my screen once every few months for just over 2 years and there is no, I repeat NO damage to the screen. The film you see is very similar to the streaks you see on a window after cleaning with windex. It is leftover residue from the stuff you were cleaning off the screen. You simply wipe it off with a slightly damp cloth for a streak free surface. I have never seen a screen damaged by cleaning it with alcohol. I'm sure if someone here on the forum has damaged or destroyed their screen in such a fashion, it would be mentioned here. In fact, this topic has been discussed on this forum before and the same answer comes up. Either use a cleaning kit from a computer store or alcohol. Same result but alcohol is much cheaper.

I think part of the problem here is water alone will not remove somethings from the screen and the alcohol will. I have a 3 year old who sometimes gets stuff on my TV and water alone will not remove it, now alcohol gets it right off but then I use a damp cloth to wipe the residue of the alcohol away since it can leach plasticizers from some plastics making them brittle.

Exactly TopDog. I agree. Try removing cigarette tar from a screen with water especially if you're a heavy smoker like me. It doesn't work.

Im going to tr iso on my sammy,i will do as you guys described.
I am a smoker also,and water didn't work well alone on it.
it has not been wiped in 18 months prior to today, so i didn't notice the tar/smoke/nicotine buildup before today. looks worse than before i tried to fix the mess.

Iso works great. Don't be afraid to use a lot. You're going to have to wipe it with a dry cloth afterward to get rid of the streaks..

I also use rubber gloves.. that shit dries out your hands in a hurry! It evaporates so fast.
