    I use a microfiber lens cloth on mine.

    You can get them at any Optician or Camera Shop. They really get rid of the grease from peoples fingers, and they're usually washable when they get a bit grubby themselves. Breath on the screen and wipe!

    They're also good for PDA's as well.

    Mediswabs all the way.. I love these things,

    they clean monitors, TFTs a treat etc, and really brings up the Titanium on my phone ;)

    the worst stuff to use is ScreenWipes, they're so ****.

    I tried the cloth i got with my Oakleys but that didn't do much made it look worse infact i was gonna use a duster and some polish how about that.

    But will try my other cloth first

    If its a really stubborn stain, get some nail polish remover and WATER IT DOWN A LOT, apply to a cotton swab (those ones on little plastic sticks are good), and run the stain. If you don't water the remover down enough you can damage your screen so be careful.

    I don't know how strong it is so, put 10 water lids in, if it doesn't work add a bit more remover.

    For stubborn stains (at the risk of sounding like a washing powder advert) Pampers wetwipes. These are great for cleaning towers, monitors, mice, any stain out of the carpet, these things are wild.

    God only knows how they clean that well but the don't harm babies backsides? :confused:

    I try to avoid stubborn stains on the screen though and generally just use a lens cloth like GOO.
