Cleaning Matte Digital Display

Anyone got any good tips for cleaning a matte screen (6WB digital display), without leaving smear marks. I've tried some screen cleaner but it's just left marks.

I just used glass cleaner with a microfibre.... i presume the microfibre is the bit you are missing to ensure a mark free finish when dry.

Cleaned the hud with it too... no issues with smears etc.

Agree with aquazi - lens or screen cleaner first to remove any dirt and then a polish with a microfibre cloth or lens cleaning cloth (i.e. for glasses) dry to remove smears from step 1.

No smears or marks left after using them and they're cheap compared to those above!

I have been told by many valeters, detailers and leprechauns that slightly soapy, pleasantly warm water is br far the best x

Carl Zeiss lens wipes
On offer in costco too if you wear glasses/ regularly use a laptop.

The whoosh kit off amazon worked well for me but the provided cloth is not lint free. So after a second go it made it worse. Expensive for what it is but works well with a lint free cloth.
