Anti Glare Coating

A while back I did quite a silly thing, you'll laugh honestly, I own an iiyama vision master pro 454. The screen had started to get a few marks on it and I thought ooh that could do with a clean so out came the furniture polish which I'd always used on my old monitor and on my tv. A quick spray and rub later and I soon realised that this wasn't a good iea, the screen was a mess with streaks everywhere. I found some mr muscle window and glass cleaner and managed to get the screen clean but from the look of it the anti glare coating went with it. Is it possible to get a spray on replacement for this or am I just gonna have to lump it and put it down to experience

That monitor is now for use in a dark room only.

Yeah, the coating is gone for good. One piece of advice: Monster (the people who make expensive audio cables) make a product called iClean that is specifically made to clean LCD monitors. I paid ~$16 for a huge bottle (this puppy will last me a year or more) and two microfiber shammies. It does a great job of cleaning off whatever gets on there, it's almost a gel so it doesn't run down the monitor, it leaves absolutely no streaks and last but not least gets rid of static electricity, therefore reducing the dust that gets attracted to the monitor. I swear by this stuff. If you try it out you won't be disappointed.

Or warm water on a wet and then wrung out cloth with a tiny bit of dishwashing detergent on it. Then rinse it twice with warm water, followed by a dry rag to polish any spots that aren't clean enough.

**CAUTION**
For CRT monitors only, LCD's require a different method.

Turn the monitor off before cleaning.
Make sure that any drips of water don't go down the screen as far as the bottom edge! Or sneak into the three other sides of the screen!

Never use paper towels and the like to clean your screen.

Oh I've learned the error of my ways, to be fair it does say in the manual don't use furniture polish but who reads a monitor manual, and after always using it on crts I just didn't stop to think that the anti glare coating would be a problem.
It's mr muscle all the way for me from now on
