How to get rid of streaks/smudges on LED TV?

Help, our house cleaner cleaned my tv with glass cleaner while I was away. It left some streaks on the TV so I tried removing it with distilled water and a microfiber cloth. Afterwards, this is what it looks like on my tv while it's off. It doesn't really show while the TV is actually on, but it bugs the heck out of me.

You just may have to clean it repeatedly with a clean microfiber cloth and warm distilled water. I would try a small area first and see if that works before taking on the rest of the panel. If Windex was used it may be reacting with the protective coating (if there was one) on the panel. The other cleaning option is eye glass cleaner (like the kind you get from the optomitrist) and a clean microfiber cloth but I'm hesitant to recommend that if the streaking is due to a chemical reaction between the panel's protective covering and the Windex.

You might just want to give it a rest and then try again a few days from now. However, if it is a chemical reaction, any heat from the panel may make it more difficult to remove over time
