marks on DSLR screen

Does anyone know if there is a way of removing slight scuff marks/scratches from my DSLR's screen? I don't know what the screen is made of, glass, or hard plastic. Would something slightly abrasive such as
metal polish help, or would it make matters worse?

I would leave it alone... if marks are not too annoying.

However, in general, if it is glass, windex may help if it is dirt.
For plastic, toothpaste is good.

Glass polish should work, the same stuff I have been using to debayer dslr sensors. It is a liquid, consisting of fine alumnium oxide powder. I bought a small bottle from Polishup.com.au for about $9.
Just rub the spot with a sensor swab and a little polish and it should be ok , unless its a deep scratch.

Slightly off topic: Removing bayer layer

Hi Glen,
Do you offer a bayer delayering service? I have several canon bodies here that get no use (my 'big gun' is a 60Da). Turning on or more into mono cameras might be handly.
