Proper Way To Clean LCD TV ?

Is it ok to clean with a paper towel and windex like a regular tv or should I use something else ?

I use a cloth diaper and water.

I bought some diapers from target (cheap).
Then I dampen 1 diaper with filtered water (or bottled) and wipe the TV.
I then dry it with a second diaper.

This will remove the dust, as there are no fingerprints or smudges on my screen.

I would NOT use windex or paper towels on the screen.

Putting Liquid on a LCD tv isn't a good idea.

Use a lint free cloth to take the Dust off, it comes highly recommended.

Spraying liquid on a screen is a bad idea. Using a little like jonw9 should be just fine. Unless there's some funky coating, but plain water shouldn't be an issue for almost any screen in existence.

Thanks guys.
It's pretty new so I haven't cleaned it yet.
I wanted to make sure before I cleaned the screen.

Yeah, the diaper I use is just damp, not wet.

I guess I should have noted this was my method for RPTVs, but should work the same for LCDs.

I have no idea what a cloth for cleaningTVs runs, but if you but the Monter cleaner I am sure it will be around $80.

I bought a package of lint free cloths in Target's automotive section, cheap and effective.
