Cleaning The Touch Screen

What do you guys use to clean the touch screen? Seems like every touch leaves a finger print.

I have only touched it a few times but always use a slightly damp microfiber cloth when it does need cleaned. In fact, that is all I use to clean the interior. I highly dislike using chemicals when there is no need to.

My car is always full of microfibre cloths and the dash gets it along with the screen at traffic lights which would otherwise just be dead time!

Definitely not the case here :-))

I usually use the command knob down by the handbrake rather than touching the screen. On occasions I have cleaned the screen using a spectacles lens cloth and cleaning fluid bought from an opticians.

A damp micro fiber did the trick. Didn't even have to use much pressure. Thanks guys.

Microfiber towel is all I use. Picks up dust too.

I use the command knob most times but it takes forever to put an address in so it is screen then microfibre ;-)
