Use what you need to

I know that water is sometimes better than stronger chemical cleaners, but I use whatever I need to get the lens clean.  In the end, who cares?  Just use a standard optics fluid and lens paper.  It's not going to make much difference if you have some fancy coatings or not.  You can have scratches all over your front element without noticing anything wrong from your photographs.
