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

Whether it is true or not (I'm thinking not) my local camera store told me that the chemicals in the solution can deteriorate the lens coating over time (probably long long time if even remotely true) and they advised me to use a micro fiber cloth. I said what the hey, it's only $4 and you can wash the cloth. I use it to clean my lens and lcd without solution .... works just great.

The kit comes with both the micro fiber cloth and the lens pen cleaning brush and solution so I will probably just use the micro cloth unless I get something really stuck on that won't come off. Then I will try and use the solution. THanks for your help.

I use both a lens pen and a microfiber anti-static cloth. I would highly recommend the lens pen, it is what I use 99% of the time.
