    You can just user a microfiber cloth that some people use to clean their glasses.

    You know; It would be better to use a terry towel instead of the rag. Also in place of pure water, try using a mixture of isopropyl alcohol:Distilled Wtaer 1:1 ratio. That'd work best!

    You need to use bottle water as when you use tap water, it contains minerals which can sometimes leave patches on the screen and small dots that looked like some sneezed on the screen.

    Erm, anyone with any sense, knows you dont just use any old rag. Well done for using only water, but really you need to be more careful about what kind of rag is used!
