    As a precaution,
    Suggest avoiding the use of any alcohol based cleaner.

    Check the TFT manual for any recommendation of cleaning methods and/or solutions.

    the two lcd's ive purchased have said to just use a damp rag. i dont think windex would hurt, but like shinma said, read first

    I just googled that subject a day ago. I would avoid any glass cleaner -- some contain ammonia to cut grease. One of the pages went so far as to recommend against even products sold as screen cleaners.
    The best advice I found was vinegar and water, and another listed several forms of alcohol to avoid, and listed only isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) as usable.
    I would start with water and proceed up the list only as necessary to the next step on the ladder. A further recommendation was to put the fluid on the cloth and not on the screen.
