Best thing to do is contact the manufacturer for their recommendation. A lot of those screens have a coating on them that is easily damaged by chemicals.

Well I was always told never use any chemicals and just use an damp towel. But I would do what danase said and call up the manufacturer.

This is what I use along with a Micro-fiber towel to clean the stereo face.

alchol can strip off any polymers on the screen, bad idea. treat it hte same as a laptop screen, lightly wash with a very diluted mild dish soap ro liquid hand soap and wipe dry.

^^^ the above picture will work to, but the spray bottle you pay $2-3 for are usually just a Dawn in a really dilute form, you cna make it your slef much cheaper. Micro cloth is alos a good idea.

I wouldn't use dish soap on anything besides dishes. Dish soap tends to dry coated finishes with time then you see oxidation. i would stick to a product that deticated for the intended surface.
