Can someone recommend good and safe cleaning wipes for touchscreens? I’ve noticed the touchscreen on my laptop is collecting dust probably due to static charge. Also what’s the safest way to remove spit circles on the screen. Yes, an enthusiastic person was looking at the screen and speaking forcefully sprinkled the screen! Thanks.

Many, many ways. Simplest way for you, will probably be best, just avoid excess.

I'd go with windex (or its generic equivalent) and a soft cotton towel.

A few drops of an organic detergent in a little water and a soft cloth may also be ok. It’s wot I ewes...

Apple-land advise similarly for cleaning their keyboards (the white ones especially) and all screens. They don’t favour cleaning wipes...

Windex and similar products may leave a feint residue, which is why for windows (real glass) scrunched up newspaper dipped in/wet with vinegar (with perhaps a few drops of organic detergent too) was often used..., and still is by many

Engine oil and a wire brush is unsafe.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

...and with new synthetic oils, you only have to do it every 25000 miles (40000 km)...

How about microfiber cloths?

I work in a department that supports about 700 laptops.

Microfiber cloths and Windex or the generic equivalent thereof works the best for removing fingerprints, spitt, bodily fluids, etc.

No I'm not being facetious, I work for a health care organization in the home health and hospice departments, bodily fluids are a real thing. Microfiber and window cleaner is the way to go.

Sounds like THX needs danger money and maybe a noddy suit too when at work? Possibly a decontamination chamber too prior to leaving work?

But seriously - his experience re 'cleaning assorted screens etc. doth come across as evidenced based for effectiveness.

I would only disagree with the use of windex etc; as (previously stated) they tend to leave a slight film on occasion. Whereas a dash of organic (dish) washing up fluid in water and a soft cloth (very soft micro fibre is fine too) doesn't - in my experience - and thus would be my preference.
