What do you use to clean the screen on a laptop computer? I think one of my grandsons must have been trying to hide their fingerprints from the screen and now it is all greasy looking. Thanks.

A place that sell's electronics should have something for you to clean your laptop with there wipes there not to high depends where you buy them.
I use and have always used Pledge Multi Surface wipes on our laptops & anything else that has a screen/glass. Never had a problem with them leaving smudges behind.
I have used regular window cleaner, but wipe up immediately. Do NOT allow the cleaner to run down the screen. Cover the keyboard before you spray. Something else I have used is the cleaner for glass top stoves if the screen is smeary with finger prints. Again, you must get all the residue from the cleaner off. I used very wet, but not dripping, paper towels and dried the screen thorough and left the computer open until I was sure it was completely dry.

Rubbing alcohol and a rag work wonders and is cheap. That is what I use on ours.

Fellows makes a product call Screen Cleaning wipes. It's a towelette wet and dry in a package. You can use it on laptops, LCD monitors, cell phones, and PDA. You can get it at Office Depot, or Office Max.
Get yourself a cotton rag and a bottle of alcohol. It does wonders. And it also get germs from it too. I think it works better than the expensive products out there. (06/14/2008)

I use my eyeglass cleaner and the swatch of fabric that comes with it. You can buy it at Wal-mart in the eye care center. (05/25/2006)

Any place that sells computers sells little bottles of computer safe spray cleaner for the screen. I don't remember how much it costs, but it lasts a very long time. (05/26/2006)

A microfibre 'glass' cleaning cloth. If there are sticky bits I moisten the cloth with a drip of water and lightly 'polish'. The cloth is virtually dry though. (05/26/2006)
