    A cloth with warm water and a little detergent, wring cloth out and wipe, will do it no harm, I would use nothing stronger.

    Careful about saying cloth and detergent without specifying what type of detergent and cloth. An abrasive cloth used with Comet cleanser would scratch Gorilla Glass 3 pretty badly.

    I would recommend something that is safe for eyeglasses. That's what I use on my Lumia, my laptop, and my glasses/sunglasses. I use a microfiber cloth with a lens cleaning solution. My lens cleaning solution is 65% rubbing alcohol, 35% distilled water, and I add one drop of Dawn dish washing detergent (others will work fine as well) for each quart of solution I mix. A quart will generally last me about 3 or 4 years, and my wife uses it on her laptop, her glasses, her phone, and we also use it to clean our big screen HDTV, and my 22" HD computer monitor.

    Cleaning solution is cheap as dirt if you make it yourself like that, and it's pretty much the same formula where you pay $5 for a 2 ounce bottle.

    I just use alcohol on a cloth. Rub lightly. Works a charm.

    All replies are talking about cleaning the screen - where the title and the OP clearly talk about cleaning the cover.

    Any useful replies for that?! lol

    Alcohol is pretty much good for cleaning anything (even drinking in berty6294's case, although not the isopropyl type). So yeah Bill's reply was a damn useful one! - Adam

    Yeah, but you have to admit, given everyone else's reply it did get swept up in the LCD/Glass talk. :P

    Same here. Stuff I use for my eye glasses works fine for everything Surface. Microfiber cloth works really well.
