Cleans lends with home solution

Hey, My lends has some spots on it and i was wondering two things.
One I was thinking i could wipe it clean with this little cloth my Macbook pro came with.
and two I wanted to know if I could maybe spray the cloth just a bit with some kind of solution. maybe something I would find at home like windex or something like this.

Thanks guys!

Yes, the microfiber cloth will work, but I would first try a shot of canned air to get any big particles off, to avoid scratching the lens. Also, apply a drop of alcohol to the lens (isopropyl rubbing alcohol, not Vodka) to clean off any stuck on junk.

Luie, try one of those lens cleaning kits. They go somewhere from $6 to $20 and cleaning instructions included in some. It is good to carry one with your camera, just in case.
Aslo there are many lens cleaning instructions on youtube.

What's wrong with Vodka? With enough of it you don't care if the lens is dirty or not ;-)
