    We use a 50/50 mix of isopropyl alcohol and distilled water.

    Apply using cotton wool pads, keep going until clean, then polish dry with a dry pad.

    You chemistry dept's suppliers catalogue will have the isopropyl and they'll probably have a still for distilling the water. We've been on the same bottle of isopropyl for about 3 years.

    I just use a bit of Maxiclene when they look particularly grubby.

    Foam cleaner seems to work for me. Not sure if it's supposed to be used on them, but it seems to do the job and leaves a smeer free finish.

    That's a coincidence. I use a 50/50 mix of IPA and cider vinegar to clear my ears after swimming.

    All of our LCDs are AG Neovo hard-fronted ones, so we just use a single squirt of Mr Muscle Window & Glass cleaner and a soft cloth.

    I'd heard a story, probably a myth, that a hard screen had shattered in a classroom and injured a pupil.

    I think there was a thread on here a while back with a shattered one - don't think anyone was injured thou.
