I have stopped buying commercial products over a year ago and make all my own stuff now, but I want to clean my computer screen. I am worried about using vinegar, etc. on the screen as I'm not sure how sensitive the screens of laptops PCs are. Can anyone help?

I read on the internet somewhere that baby wipes washed windows well. Tried it and though it is not like spring cleaning, it does a nice job, always keep a pack in car, and have used on computer screen, as I feel that if it is soft enough for a baby, then it should not hinder the computer screen.
Don't bother trying to make your own cleaner for your computer screen. All I do is take a soft cotton rag, dampen it with water, and run it over my screen.
I would recommend using isopropyl alcohol to clean the computer screen. I worked at Kinko's years ago and we would use a cleaner that was mostly rubbing alcohol (it had that distinctive doctor's office smell). When we ran out, we would just use a bottle from the drug store. I have also seen alcohol used for cleaning LCD TV screens. Be sure to use a lint free cloth, like microfiber or one for cleaning eyeglasses.
I use distilled vinegar on my screen once a week with no problem and have had this screen for over two years. I just soak a small portion of a cotton cloth with some distilled vinegar, wipe the screen and then dry the residue with the dry portion of the cloth.
I've used rubbing alcohol for years with no problem. Cheap and easy.
Plain water on a soft cloth is all you need. Make sure the cloth is damp, not dripping. Rub gently on any dried up spots and they will soon come off.
