I understand this is probably not the correct place to post this question, but here it goes regardless.

I recently purchased a 3DS... I was simply wondering if using rubbing alcohol, as a cleaner could cause damage to the LCD screen of the system? I placed some in the cap, than used a Q-Tip dipped in the rubbing alcohol, and cleaned up the noticeable areas, than I got a lint free cloth, dabbed it in some rubbing alcohol, than gently cleaned the screen.

This left some marks on the screen, like water marks or something, so I used some actual LCD cleaning liquid, and it worked perfectly, made my screen like new.

So I was simply wondering if using 50/50 rubbing alcohol as a cleaner for an LCD screen could cause damage now, or in the future. Thank you in advance for answering my questions, I greatly appreciate it. :p

I think you've answered your own question -- it's not suitable for cleaning your 3DS screen. Use the product that works best, the LCD screen cleaner. It's also safer than the rubbing alcohol which gives off toxic fumes.
