Computer screens

What's the best way to keep your computer screen clean? I wipe mine down every day with a soft damp cloth, but is there a better way? Thanks.

Thanks Ohlia - but I was going to ask the same as pink?
For the keyboard, printer. monitor, etc., etc., I use a damp cloth lightly sprayed with Dettox, because according to Which? magazine, it's the only cleaning product which really does kill off bacteria and all the nasties.
My screen just needs something to bring it up clean and sparkling, and I don't know what's best to use.

Many computer stores carry that or similar, and http://tinyurl.com/m5n98o

I sometimes use wipes, you know those baby wipes thingy... the anti bacterial ones and they do a great job too.

I've got one of those ultraviolet sterilisers which I use on mine - in fact I use it on most things - even the animals run when they see it.....

Thanks everyone, and because Rusty's idea sounds the cheapest, I'll get some next week and give them a go, but I reckon my husband's cigar smoke doesn't help matters. He doesn't smoke them very often, but when he does, he always comes in here, knowing it makes me feel sick!!!
Sorry - got to blame someone! :lmao4:
