Default How to Clean?

Best way to clean a plasma TV screen? Someone told me microfiber cloth and distilled water, is this true?

Not sure about Plasma's but that's what the manual for my LED/LCD recommends. I'd imagine cleaning them would be the same though.

Ok, do I wet the microfiber cloth first? If so how much water do I use?

My manual says to "spray the cloth 4 to 6 times".

And is there a certain motion I should wipe in? I guess I will just use an old spray bottle.

I don't use any type of solution at all, to clean my screen to smear it. I use a soft dry cloth, or a feather duster to dust it with because it doesn't get dirty or grimy with oily fingerprints by being touched. If the screen doesn't get manhandled with fingerprints constantly, the screen shouldn't need cleaning by using solvents. But if the person have small children, then that's another story!
