    how do you clean your screen?

    I wipe mine with a soft cotton cloth which I read on some apple site that I should do, but it doesn't really get rid of the fingerprints. What do you guys do to keep the screen clean?

    I use my breath to put a bit of a haze on the surface of the glass then wipe the screen with a microfiber cloth. It does a great job... It removes all fingerprints.. I even carry a cloth with me in my jacket pocket to clean the screen when I'm out and about.....

    Talking Same here...

    I use a wet wipe (the kind with no scent or chemicals, which I use with my 16mo daughter lol), then I dry it with, say, a diaper cloth - it's very soft and won't scratch the iPad's screen... I have a screen protector that's antiglare and "no fingerprints" as well, so even though it will kind of "stain" after a lot of use, I don't really get fingerprints here.

    I use the wet towels that are for cleaning your glasses. I also use them for my lens from the photocamera. Works perfect.

    A dry microfiber cloth is the go.
    Quick wipe and as new ,no filmy residue.
    I keep a small piece tucked in the cover for traveling.

    No need to clean the screen of an ipad...I don't....I use a Capacitive Touch Stylus Pen obtained from Amazon....FANTASTIC, absolutely no finger marks.

    Thanks everyone! So since I don't have any babies around at home I'm going to go out and purchase a microfiber cloth I do have a stylus pen which I use a lot but there are some things (like typing) that I do much faster with my fingers.

    Was advised at Apple Retail Store to use window cleaner like Windowlene as, after all, the screen is glass. Have been doing so since and it works a treat. I have no protector, of course. just wipe it with kitchen roll after spraying (remove any cover first!) :-) As a temporary measure I do the breathing trick or wipe with any soft cloth although that doesn't remove fingerprints. Bear in mind that hand creams/lotions will leave greasy marks. I always flick away any unseen dust or particles before spraying/wiping, especially when travelling on public transport. Have often considered licking the screen but they don't have wifi at local asylum!
