How do I store cloth at end to make sure it stays without debris for next time?
You don't need rocket science or special fluids really. I've been cleaning LCDs since they were popular in computer monitors which is a few years before they were in TVs with....
Soap and water. Seriously just get some Bounty, put it under running tap, squeeze it out a bit, add a few drops of Dawn, etc. and you're good to go. Just use common sense and don't use too
much water--you don't want to have water leak into the frame and then eventually leak into the tab bonds where it will corrode and destroy the contacts and the TV. Wipe with a less damp paper towel (no soap, or just rinse out your first one 'cause Bounty is pretty tough) and then dry with a clean/dry MF or a cotton cloth/towel. As the other guy said use a "torch" (British term, lol, use a flashlight) to ensure you have no streaks.
I've been doing this since time immemorial to clean screens; obviously with LCDs you need to use less pressure and be much more gentle than the days of RPTVs or CRTs but I've never had a problem with this method. It's of course a lot more work to get a 65 or 75" screen totally streak free than a 24" computer monitor, lol.
Funny enough I just cleaned my Z9D a couple weeks ago...I cleaned it when I got it but forgot I handled it quite a bit when I repaired and later mounted it, and I also didn't do a "streak free" job the first time. I cleaned it this time and got it perfectly streak free and I actually got the DSE looking better because I guess some of it was actually
caused by dirty screen haha

It's a great TV and a very interesting comment coming from someone that looks like they deal in TVs as their business!
However if we talk about from a "for the time" standpoint, TBH, I was always most impressed with the XBR8 because...at the time...there were very few LCDs that were anything near it. Back in those days you still felt like XBR meant something, while these days so many models get the XBR name (including lame IPS X8x0Y sets) that it feels watered down.
Today there are so many good TVs out there and the difference between some of the "really good" offerings from TCL and Hisense and the upper-level Sony, Samsung, seems to be much less of a leap, yet the price difference can be a huge leap. I.e. there's a lot more bang-for-the-buck to be had in "lesser" TVs and the high-end seems more an elitist affair than a necessity for great picture.
