No fluids at all - they may leave remnants on the surface. Simply use a good-quality micro fiber cloth - dry if possible. You may need to take the thing apart to be able to clean the inside of the glass where a thin film may be as a result of re-condensation of lubricants used in the mechanism. Use microfiber for this, too.
I've got some new microfiber cloths, and can give this a try, but I'm not sure they will work well without liquid. Maybe if I breathe heavily on the scanner glass ... <g>

And I am too frightened to take the scanner apart to get at the underside of the glass. I might never get it back together again, and then I'll have to go out and buy a new scanner (which would probably cost me a fifth of what I paid for this one!).
