    Get anti static monitor wipes, wet it ever slightly, and well, wipe the screen.

    Then get a dry antistatic, and gently wipe it.

    I use Kensington Surface Guardian Lint Free Wipes for my flatscreen LCD.

    in the sink i just put a tiny dab of hand soap, fill with some water, and dip a corner of a soft cloth in it. the little bit of soap is just to break up an fingerprints and oils that are on there. i seriously doubt it causes any damage to the screen. mine still looks fine.

    the warnings that you see are to keep people from using window cleaner or anything ammonia-based, as that will damage the plastic.

    If it's just dust, all you need is a soft dry cloth.
    If there are fingerprints etc., just wet it slightly, wipe them off, and then dry the screen with a dry cloth. :)

    Nice soft cloth very slightly dampened with a touch of washing up liquid. This beats all the "professional" cleaners.
