    A damp, soft, lint-free cloth.

    Don't waste beer money on over priced chemical concoctions IMO.

    Get a cheap optical glass filter cleaner. Works fantastic!

    I hope you really don't mean Windex. The stuff is evil.

    (great on hard drives though )

    Hehe is it??

    I checked the name now. I've used Clout, which is for cleaning windows and mirrors. I hope that's better than Windex

    Check the company who made it and see what they recommend. Most of what I've seen say Damp soft lint-free cloth. NO CHEMICALS.

    Please DON'T ues windex or any chemical cleaner - it'll only leave a residue that will build up over time.

    A lot of those "wipes" can also leave tiny abrasions on your screen.

    Use a lint free cloth or better use a "MicroFiber" cloth - dampen and then dry screen with another cloth.

    Windex is brutal. It'll even eat your tinted windows over time if you clean them with it.

    No chemicals? That kind of limits you somewhat... Personally i keep my powerbook leviated in a magnetic field, in a vacuum at 3K... I don't want any chemicals to get near it.
