Re: How do you clean your LCD monitors?

in Milliways
Honestly, I have also been hearing about the horrors of Windex, or even any alcohol that's not isopropanol (e.g., regular ethanol), and haven't really seen a single well-documented case of the coating being damaged by them. I myself use the "special" cleaning spray that you buy in shops, mostly …
