Apple online advice says a damp lint free cloth is an option to clean my Desktop screen, but Apple store advise against.


I also have a spray bottle of Monster iClean that I have had for about 10 years.


Does anyone know :     a) if it is still safe to use the iClean, or could it have degraded over time and no longer be viable, and possible have an adverse effect on                                       the screen ?


                                   b) any other options ?


                                                  Many thanks.

    Apple say use a damp lint free cloth and provide (or used to) just such a beast.   I have always done that and never had problems.   I certainly would not use 10 year old cleaning products.
