If I just want a simple clean, Lenspen will do. If I need a thorough cleaning, I use Kodak lens cleaning paper and cleaning fluid. You can buy from CP. Not cheap though, but it will last you for ages!

Microfiber cloth only. Also B+W MRC filter, so no cleaning problem.

Before cleaning using lenspen/microfiber cloth, use an air blower to blow off any particulars from the filter so that they will not scratch it.

What do you mean by also B+W only? You mean B+W no need to clean?
Because MRC coating of B+W filter is superb and smooth, so no problem cleaning. If you have Hoya filter, you know how difficult is to clean fingerprint on hoya filter. With B+W filter, its so easy... Just use microfiber cloth. Last time I use Hoya filter, but after I try B+W filter, I change all my filter to B+W filter.
