Microfiber conundrum

I know that this has been rehashed a few times but I am having a bugger of a time getting my f8500 clean. I use distilled water and a microfiber cloth just like I know I'm supposed to but I always end up just smearing the skin oils or what Ever my kids put on there around. I think it's the microfiber cloths I have. Should have known that magic means junk. So I don't need instructions, I need to know what cloths actually work.

There is nothing magical, no marketing sham involved with microfiber cloths. Your issue is the material that is on your screen that doesn't belong there.

Water will never fully dissolve or remove oils. Oil and water.. cliche for a reason. If that is the type of stuff getting on your screen, you may have to do like I do (with a 2yr old) and use a actual screen cleaning product.

Panasonic TC-P55S60
Sony S5100 BD-Player

What solution do you use? Ive been looking at some but not sure if they are legit. I'm not gonna lie I'm pretty worried about damaging the AR filter on my screen. Not even joking this tv is worth more than my car!

Have you read the owner's manual to see what it has to say with regards to cleaning the display?

My VT60 owner's manual says to soak a soft, lint-free cloth in diluted, mild liquid dish soap (1 part dish soap to 100 parts water). Wring out the excess water, wipe the display off and then wipe with a similar dry cloth until the surface is dry.

Make sure it's at room temperature, a warm tv streaks worse. Don't use a solvent based cleaner you should stick to mild dish soap like Ivory.
