    Ideally the proper cleaning stuff for screens as they are quite delicate. I wouldn't just use anything on them.

    Any computer shop sells them.

    DON'T use any sort of alcohol/solvent based cleaner. You'll strip off the coating that's on the screen.

    Fellowes do a little pump spray that Staples sell. Or online there are these guys - www.screenclean.co.uk.

    But if you want to clean it this second, get a bit of warm water with a bit of detergent added. Wipe gently over the screen with a soft cloth dampened with this solution and buff it dry with a dry part of the soft cloth. That should see you okay until you get a proper cleaner.

    I use a premium quality microfibre with a little warm water (so little in the cloth that you can only just feel it being damp)... no detergents... comes up like new.

    warm water and a cloth = no problems.
    IMO these cleaners are not really worth paying out for, when a little water and a cloth work just as well.
