Default What can I clean my LED TV with?

I have the Samsung LED 46" inch TV and desperately need something to clean it with. The screen doesn't seem to be the traditional LCD-type, it's more glass like. I'm not sure how to describe it.

Anyway, I have the Monster LCD screen cleaner (in the blue bottle) that I use on my laptop and camcorder. I used it on this TV, along with the cloth that came with, and it smeared TERRIBLY. So bad that it took me almost an hour to clean off the smears with dry sections of the cloth. I was afraid I was going to scratch it, but I didn't seem to.

Is there anything that would work better?

A micro fiber cloth slightly dampened with distilled water. Avoid any type of detergent or amonia cleaner you will damage the anti-glare coating....

I know they have anti-static monitor wipes, those have worked for me in the past. They are like the moist handwipes for your screen as well as your other electronics. I use them on my electronics PS3, Panasonic LCD TV, Xbox 360, DVD player, etc. they work good and aren't oversaturated with any chemicals that will damage your electronics.

Anything, other than distilled water as Pappylap mentioned has the potential to damage the screen. I have seen it happen, first hand. So I say no to Monster or any other screen cleaner as distilled water and a microfiber cloth will do just fine...

I have used with great success cleaner made for eyeglasses that have anti-reflective/ anti-glare coatings along with a microfiber cloth mitt but to be entirely safe distilled water with microfiber

Still the best method of cleaning inc misting a very light coat of water H2O and the use of a clean mircofibre clothe and careful pressure.
