I used a mix of lysol and windex and it made it worse, any other tips?

Just wipe it off with a screen cleaning cloth. I wrap the stylus with a cleaning cloth to dig out the dirt from the corners.

Also, you shouldn't mix cleaners.

I used a very damp microfiber cloth and that worked fine.

A few drops of soapy water.

Soap picks up the oil, and water does what it does.
Don't use Windex on plastics. It's for glass unless otherwise specified.

Potentially, but before assuming that, I would try cleaning it with the aforementioned soap and water. Also, the reason why I said you shouldn't mix chemicals is because not only will it not make it any stronger, it could damage whatever you're cleaning as well as make noxious by-products. Bleach and ammonia makes chlorine gas.

I dunno.
Depends on how long you left it on. If you aren't able to wipe off what ever it is "on" the screen with some water and some effort, then unfortunately, you may have caused damage.

A soft cotton cloth lightly dampened with just tap water is enough for me. As long as you don't soak anything then the water shouldn't leave smudges and/or streaks behind. I've never had to clean off more than small dust buildups and don't know what's required beyond some soap when there's more dirt or whatever.

And you may not have actually ruined your screen(s) with the Windex—it depends on whether or not it was ammonia free. If it wasn't then it could've permanently discolored them, and it likely streaked it quite a bit either way.

There is such a thing as Windex for electronics, that and those soft paper towels is what I use. Bounty Extra soft or something.
