Hello. I have a question regaurding LCD screen cleaners. Basically, before I spend as much time looking for a good brand as I did the HDTV I'll be using it on, which is best?

Ive heard that ammonia and alchohol can harm the screen, and have owned a 22" PC monitor for nearly 8 months which I only had to clean (with more than a Swiffer!) after a christmas party where someone sneezed, belched, or coughed on my baby. I won't mention the fingerprints. That is taboo, you never touch my lcd!!!
Well, even with the spatters and fingerprints, the screen still looked better turned on or off then it did after I broke out an LCD "wet wipe" to clean it. I mean COME ON! When the screen dried it was so streaked that calling it streaked was an understatement!!! It was SMOKED! (Not to mention the damned wipe was so wet I had to wring it out or it would have dripped all over for sure!) I thought I had ruined my pc monitor!
It took me 25 minutes rubbing with a soft dry cloth to get rid of the "streaks".

Can anyone PLEASE tell me how to avoid this? I don't think I can stand wracking my brains out over a screen cleaner like I did over which HDTV to buy, and I don't want to spend money on crap that doesn't work and could potentially harm my new baby.

Thanx in advance for any advice!

I just bought a 630 series 46" Samsung from hhgregg. When I asked about cleaning the screen the salesperson told me to buy this spray & cloth- what a POS ($30.00 + 7% IN sales tx
)! It left streaks and drove me insane! I had some wipes for my LCD laptop and tried it- it did a heck of a better job!I just made sure that the tv was off and cooled! Much, much better and no anguish!

I bought the 30$ monster cable spray crap too (damn I hate monster cable)
. Indeed it left some gooey streaks. I trash the cleaner but kept the microfiber towel and only use a little bit of water and it does a great job. IMO microfiber tower are the best because they will not scratch the bezel or the screen or left particule! Do not use "heavy" cleaner or anything with amoniac.
