Use ROR cleaner and a micro-cloth.  The chemicals in Eclipse might affect the coatings on filters.  Spray ROR on a micro-cloth, clean in a circular motion and wipe dry with a second, clean micro-cloth.  ROR is made specifically for cleaning smudges off of lenses and filters, hence the name ROR (Residual Oil Remover).  It might seem expensive, but a little goes a long way.  Besides, why take a chance of ruining a delicate coating on a filter or lens.  Here's a link....

Eclipse is specifically made for cleaning lenses and filters. In 20 years it has done no harm to any of my kit. I would not hesitate to use it even on my GBP£ 1000 Nik 300/F4.
