@bo. So you mean the part where the pixels show and everything? I wonder what my cloth would look like after I wipe it...

I would love to see the results of this. I just use a cloth to wipe my LCD's now. If it works allright, I MIGHT try to use alcohol once in a while, to give it a better clean.

I'll probably clean mine this weekend. It's been over 2 months since my last cleaning. I'll post pics. It'll give you an idea what the inside of my lungs look like.

OT but for those of you with kids, you could get a clear plastic sheet (the kind they use in overhead projectors) and tape it over your screen, then your kid can poke and throw stuff at it all he wants and it will be safe (keep the heavier objects out of throwing distance). they do this at a couple animation studios I have been at so they can draw on the screen without actually drawing on the screen, and when the piece of plastic gets too dirty, replace it with a new one.

Do not use paper towels,They are a wood product and they will scratch the screen. Use a soft lint free cloth or micro fibre only.
