Similar way how you clean glass, but with minimal pressure on the digital cluster screen:

I use plastic cleaner but with a VERY clean microfiber cloth...never applying heavy pressure. Upkeep between needing to clean it, I simply use a Swiffer for the dust.

Like glass cleaning, you should spray your product on the microfibre towel and not directly on the surface itself

Thanks guys! I am hesitant to use glass cleaner and have tried electronic cleaning sprays for like computer screens and TVs but it streaks like crazy and I can only remove them in the right cold temperature and with a lot of wiping.

Any product recommendations?

MF interior towel and cleaner u have used?

Thanks in advance!

I never touch the screen because I hate fingerprints. I wipe the screen down with a computer screen cleaning microfiber cloth and occasionally use a lens cleaning cloth, the type that you'd use for eyeglasses.

I found for a clean streak free screen its best to use bottled water with those lens cleaning cloth. Plain old water has no extra chemicals to leave streaks.

Exactly this myself. Never had any streaks or scratches.
