    Daz scouring powder :smashin:
    Works great.
    Joke :smashin:

    Or anything gentle, as in liquid baby soap or fairy liquid or plain water or glass cleaner.

    Or a cloth with a bit of spit :smashin:

    I use one of those handy chamois pads (with the sponge inside).
    Gets right into the corners and brings the screen up smudge-free.

    A light misting with non-coloured glass cleaner for anything more stubborn.

    just bought a hitachi 42pd7200 from richer sounds, they recommend a Spontex cleaning cloth, bright green in colour, available from sainsbury, tesco, etc. don't use anything with a cleaning fluid (ie alcohol or similar) in it as it removes the anti-glare layer on the glass! :(

    is the spontex that made made foam rubbery one? I would stick to 3M micorfibre (what B&O use) and for nasty marks use steam from kettle to moisten the cloth

    You don't need anything special guys!!!!
    Anything you'd put on a babies butt will do, IMO.

    No doubt someone will prove me wrong though.

    The Tesco MF towels are quite good for about £1 and much better value than the 3M or Vileda. The best MF towels I have tried come from here www.pakshak.com.

    Unless the screen is very dirty a slightly damp MF towel will remove most dust etc and then buff with a dry one.
