First, I'm pretty sure I've seen this topic before, but it's not coming up in the search. So if you want to point me to another thread that's fine.

I'm using a Kodak P&S and the other day I noticed that the lens looks rather cloudy and could probably use a good cleaning. It's not affecting my photos (as far as I can tell), yet.

I obviously don't want to damage or scratch or smear the lens so I'm looking for recommendations on how to clean it. Is there a kit I should buy? Or other tricks.
(OR would you just leave it alone?)

THANKS!

The absolute best "off-the-shelf" lens cleaner you can buy (short of using ethanol) is Kodak:

Use it with a non-treated microfiber cloth such as this:
