Spanking comes to mind... :) Just kidding..
You can access the inside area od the screen and with some windex and paper towel clean the reverse. There are actually two screens there sandwiched together, a lenticular and frensel screen. If you remove the front panel you should be able to remove the screens from the frame and clean between them also... If any of this makes you nervous calla qualified shop and they can do this in minutes on a house-call..
Have a great day!
