Or-- you know-- the fact that air (particularly recirculated AC and heat) contains millions of tiny particles and microbes that just waft through your home bathing everything that isn't wrapped in a full hazmat suit...
You know the usual stuff.
Look, to each his own and, to be clear, I recommended using lens cleaner-- not windex or bleach or oxy clean-- EYEGLASS CLEANER. You know, the same stuff professionals use to clean high end camera equipment (that costs more than your display) and... Eyeglasses... Yeah. I really don't think your plasma is sensitive enough to be affected by eyeglass cleaner-- and if it is I'd sell it and go buy something that wasn't a piece of ****.
Relax. No sense in getting all worked up over how you want to clean your panel. Yeah, mine gets dirty (certainly no where near as bad as the old CRT with its static surface) from time to time, but the kids are grown up so no "peanut butter" fingerprint type smudges anymore
Eyeglass cleaner is fine (even though most contain isopropyl alcohol), even the type for special treated lenses (anti-reflective, uv) which I use on my glasses. We're just talking about cleaning tv panels, not the national deficit. My opinion is that distilled water and a microfiber cloth is absolute safest way to go and will work fine for most people under most situations. However, if you feel the need to use something else, fine.
