    The screen on my EOS 3 fell out and was attacked by the kids. I have
    soft brushed and air blasted it but it seems stained. Can I wash it?

    More than likely, there are now fingerprint oils on the matte side of
    the screen. If you scrub it, you're going to abrade the surface of
    the screen and leave marks. I would take it to a shop to have it
    ultrasonically scrubbed, if you are uneasy about your cleaning skills.
    The only other thing I would suggest would be to use a cosmetic sponge
    wedge (your wife's probably got some squirreled away) moistened with
    glass cleaner, and gently wipe in a single direction. Do not scrub in
    circles or back-n-forth.
