Question Need advice about cleaning my Samsung LED HDTV

The TV in question is a 50" Samsung 5300 series LED. I moved apartments in February. Although my Dad transported the TV, when the mover was lifting it from the carpet to the TV stand, he got a bit of water off his glove on the TV (it was raining outside). I think my first mistake was using old cheap LED/Plasma/LCD wipes I bought at a liquidation world. I wiped the area he made a glove print and in it, turn left, streak/cloudiness. Because of the fogginess/streaks the wipes left behind I went out to Wal-Mart and spent $20.00 on a Philips LED/LCD/plasma screen cleaning kit (green eco friendly spray bottle + microfiber cloth). After cleaning it 2-3 times with this, the whole screen has cloudiness only visible in certain lights. (Definitely not visible when playing xbox one or watching a dvd/bluray). But I wish to return my screen to its original pristine condition before I moved.

My friend suggested I buy a box of good quality wipes, clean it, then use a microfiber to dry up the residue. Sound good? how would _you_ do it?

I always use 50% isopropyl 50% filtered water and a microfiber cloth and it's been fine.

It really shouldn't be difficult. Also apply the solution to the cloth don't spray it on the TV.

Either for screen cleaning, you could of course just use more of the 50-70% blends and less plain water.

I have heard store bought cleaning liquid leaves streaking/cloudiness. I'm going to a TV/Sound system store tomorrow to ask for a cleaning product and some advice.

Think I did it. I wasn't flipping the cloth over and drying up the residue the last few times I did it weeks ago. Think it worked this time. Gonna buy more clothes for the future.
