Goodness me you guys (I stopped short of using more colourfull language).
WAIT until the static electricity has disapated from your monitor- about an hour.
Rince out a cloth in warm water, and then spray a little 'spray and wipe onto the cloth.
Clean the "lurgs" off the monitor/screen, and then rinse the cloth out again, and give a final wipe. Done!

~~+++++++^^^^^^^^^^^^^^+++++++~~
Only read the manual as a last resort.

Jules,
I just had to clean a beer snort spew off of my twin LCDs (after a LOL)!
I used a very highly diluted citrus based cleaner in order to accomplish the job.
We DO have to know that some matter that may end up on our LCDs will require more than just water to remove as water and oils do not emulsify. Keeping that in mind, many of the coatings on LCDs will not stand up to overly acidic cleaning solutions, nor will they stand up to overly alkiline solutions either.

The answer is to use more or less than 7.0 litmus rated water (BTW, most tap water is harder than that, thus a 7.4-7.9 litmus level in most areas of the US), but do not exceed the 8.0 or the 6.0 barriers. If you stay within these parameters, you will most likely get most of the "JUNK" off of your screen without damaging it...excessively. If you continue to worry about it, then make sure you use a clean water (7.0) solution to cleanse the remaining acid or alkaline left on your monitor, with a thourough drying with lint free matterials.

We are, however getting into the area of nitpicking....
I know, at least partially my fault.
