Product recommendations for cleaning screens

We got a newish MacBook and a Dell 27" Ultra monitor. Neither one appears to be glass.

What are best practices and products (cloths/liquids/??) for cleaning laptop and stand alone monitor screens?

I’ve been using old t-shirts as cleaning cloths since the 8088 days. Damp, not wet. And be gentle.


Apple recommends a soft, lint free cloth lightly dampened with water but I seem to recall reading that Apple stores used a product called Whoosh.

microfibre cloth (damp if needed) is all you need. I use disinfecting wet wipes on keyboard and trackpad.

Whoosh is good stuff. Just remember to spray the cloth not the device.
