    First check your manual or the manufacturers web site to see what they recommend.
    You could probably safely use a cleaner specifically designed for LCD monitors and TVs.

    I work in a mechanics shop and this has happened as well . Wipe up most of it with a clean cloth , Yeah I know its gonna smear but the object is to get the most of it off . Then a simple microfiber cloth and windex will be more than enough .

    i prefer to use glasses cleaner (eye glass cleaner) with actually the eyeglass microfibers to clean my electronics...seems to work really well on oil bases and has never caused any issues

    windex may work but I'm allergic to it ....or maybe I'm just allergic to cleaning lol

    Did you try duct tape? I tried once just to take oil off the screen and it seemed to work well. My duct tape was at least 2 years old, and I think some of the tackiness isn't as strong as it used to be.
