Kids can be destructive as can be the oils in your fingers. Usually a microfiber cloth is best and preferably without cleaners, just try moistening the cloth with water if necessary (I've seen recommendations for a light vinegar based solution) and don't rub hard, but depends somewhat if you have a glass outer or some sort of coating on the screen to contend with. What TV?

Grab an old t-shirt, or if you have some cloth diapers around, grab a clean one that has not be washed with fabric softener or dried with a fabric softener sheet. Then use distilled water with just a small drop of dish soap in it. If you go to monoprice.com, you can get the large bottles of LCD/Plasma screen cleaner cheap.

This question comes up every couple of months and you will get all sorts of replies. The safest way is to use a good quality, clean, microfiber cloth dampened with distilled water (warmed if necessary). For stubborn "peanut butter" smudges biggrin.gif some folks have had very good luck with a good eyeglass lens cleaner, again with a good quality microfiber cloth. Just press ever so gently and rub until gone. There are all kinds of commercial panel cleaners available but a lot of them have chemicals that can, and will, leave streaks at times. Water and a microfiber cloth is usually your best, and cheapest way to clean panels, especially if your panel has some sort of anti-reflective coating on it which can react with any number of compounds.
