Does anyone out their clean their own screens? I have many removed gummi bear spots that shine really bright when you look at them at certain angles. I simply took a clean cloth a water only, and rubbed them out tonight and it worked well.

But how about the entire screen? Is their any cleaning agent that can safely be used, or is just water the best way? OR, should I just find a professional to do it?

Film-Tech Film Handlers Forum recently had a thread on screen cleaning. Matte white screens are usually just pigmented vinyl, so cleaning is less likely to harm the surface. Wet or solvent cleaning may damage the surfaces used on "gain" screens, so other than superficial dusting and brushing, cleaning is best left to professionals. Harkness Hall is reported to be working on a screen cleaning "kit".
