According to Apple (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=60446) the way to do it is:

How To Clean an LCD Panel

This article describes the best way to clean an LCD panel such as those used on PowerBook computers and Apple flat panel displays.

To clean the LCD: Turn off the computer or display. You may need to turn off the computer in order to turn off some Apple displays.
Dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth or paper with water only.
Wipe the screen. Do not spray liquid directly on the screen.

You may also use a mild glass cleaner that contains no alcohol or ammonia. Most office supply stores sell cleaning kits specifically designed for this purpose.

While there are many commercial products available that will work without damaging the plastics, Apple has tested a product called Klear Screen made by Meridrew Enterprises (http://www.klearscreen.com) and found it does not cause any harm to the plastics. This product may not be available worldwide.
