    Dish soap isn't soap, it's almost always detergent. I recommend against it. Soap is a pretty safe cleaner for most surfaces, it's even used in some circumstances for art conservation etc. but I sure wouldn't put it on an LCD.

    BTW, lens cleaner and eyeglass cleaner is the same 50/50 formula I described. And most better CRT monitors have an antiglare optical coating almost identical to the coating on camera lenses and eyeglasses, the antireflective coating will be degraded over time with paper towels and windex, I use the 50/50/flannel solution on my expensive Sony 20" CRT too.

    I spend a lot of time cleaning my optics. I had the antiglare optical coating put on my eyeglasses and boy did I regret it, it was much harder to clean without streaks, showed fingerprints more than uncoated lenses, and I felt like my glasses were constantly dirty and blurry. My optician gave me a new cool microfiber polymer cloth that is extremely soft and will lift fingerprints and gunk from eyeglasses without using any liquids, it's amazing. Might be worth checking out this cloth for CRT and LCD cleaning, it's only like $3 at your local eyeglass shop.
