Default Anybody Use These Lens Cleaning Kits?

Anybody use these lens cleaning kits? If so, are the chemicals safe for the lcd too, or just the lens? Or would I just need the micro fiber cloth for the LCD? I just want to keep my new camera in the best shape I can. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=15215

Save your money and breath on your lens and LCD instead! Use your shirt to wipe it off.

I've done that for years and have no regrets.

Surfaces scrathes is very seldom viewable in the photos anyway.

Haven't used one of those kits, but got a dry cleaning pen that works well. It suggests using the breath trick and then you use the cleaning end of it. This gets rid of most dust and finger prints, but once I accidentally put a sunscreen finger print on the lense on a hot day that set hard. I was told to use methylated spirits and a soft cloth, which I did and worked well, but I wonder what people think about metho as a very cheap cleaning solution?
