    Forget the soap. Use a very soft cloth slightly dampened with plain
    water. Then wipe dry with another soft cloth. In the USA we have a
    brand of paper towels called "Bounty." They are ideal for this purpose;
    perhaps you have a brand of very soft paper towels available to you, as
    well.

    I also use this method for my spectacles and for the plastic rear
    window of my roadster. The roadster is 11 years old and the rear window
    is as clear as when it was new.

    Three basic rules about cleaning LCDs:

    * The front polarizer is usually unprotected, and typically has a 2H
    hardness (yes, that's 2H as in pencil grades). Make sure you use a
    *clean* cloth, because dust can be harder than 2H.
    * Do not use cleaners that contain ammonia or chlorine (this
    eliminates most window cleaners), ketones, methyl ethyl choride, &c.
    * Antistatic cleaning products are useful.

    There are prepackaged towelette products sold specifically for
    cleaning LCDs, for example <http://www.photodon.com/csc.htm#lcdwipes>.
