    You can use lighter fluid to remove that foam goo from focusing screens, but if it gets on the matte side, that's a different story.

    My method of cleaning one-piece screens is to remove them, clean them using my fingers with dish washing soap under running water. Once it's clean, I hold it securely by the edges, shake off the excess and dry with compressed air. I've done this maybe 30 or 40 times without a problem with all types of cameras.

    With two-piece screens, that's a different story, and you have to be very careful.

    I also once had to remove a dead ant that had gotten between the prism and the focusing screen (Minolta SRT 202).
