DO NOT USE WINDEX.

Consult your owners manual as to what they recommend.

It is usually a very mild combo of soap and water.

Microfiber towel lightly dampened with water.

I agree with the two bovers...

NO CHEMICAL stuff and NO WINDEX, NO PLEDGE or other
nonsensical CHEMICALS..
Very mild soap... just a tiny tad amount.... room temp water.

Use your head.... (to think I mean ).

Make sure with your microfiber is it not going to scratch. Best advice I have ever heard is to rub your microfiber cloth on the data side of a bad CD. If it scratches that, don't ever let it touch your stuf. If it won't scratch that, you are good.

There are some cleaners specifically made for electronics that use a mild soap with no ammonia. But use them only if you feel the need to use a "cleaner." Very mild soap is always better.

Endust made a great computer monitor cleaner (made for lcd's) but I haven't seen it in a long time.

I would say yes. Especially if your plasma has an anti-glare coating on the glass. It may be even more critical for plasma.

The main issue with Windex and similar is that they contain ammonia.

LCD screens in particular don't like ammonia. Not sure about plasma; since it's glass, it shouldn't mind.

Also, no matter what is used, be certain that you don't "soak" the screen such that any cleaner is allowed to dribble behind the bezel.
