    I've been using a cloth that came with my glasses on the screen. I use it all over and apply a bit of pressure.

    Am I doing it the right way, or could that wear off the oleophobic coating?

    Microfiber cloth and glass cleaner like Griot's. Never paper towels or tissue, they are abrasive. If you wear glasses you learned this already, long ago.

    I purchased a pack of Microfiber clothes in the automotive department at Walmart. They work great. It was a pack of 8. Does a great job of keeping the glass front clean. If it has quite a few fingerprints, I will spray a little glass cleaner or eye glass cleaner on the screen while cleaning it.

    Mine has a screen protector, so I just use any soft cotton cloth. Even my shirt gives it a good wipe.

    I've read some real horror storys about what people use to clean their iPads.

    It never fails to amaze me when people spend hundreds of pounds on their iPads and those who spend thousands of pounds on new cars yet use cheap products to keep them clean.

    I was in a well known store the other day hearing this woman going ballistic at this poor salesman because her five year old daughter had

    cratched her new iPad and wanted the salesman to replace her iPad for a new one as she thought the screen was not scratch proof.

    I HIGHLY recommend that you NEVER USE A CHEMICAL CLEANER on the display of your iPad / iTouch / iPhone.

    What I have done successfully for years is the following:

    - Luke warm water.
    - Soft terry cloth towel.
    -Wipe in straight lines with damp spot of towel.
    -Immediately dry in straight lines with dry part of towel.

    I've just tried cleaning my iPad screen with microfibre cloths which I'm using for window cleaning.


    I have a coarse cloth which I rinse in clean water and wring out till damp. Wipe the screen with the water damp cloth. Then wipe over with the fine micro fibre finishing cloth. I do not use chemicals of any description with these cloths, just good old fashioned water and care :)

    The screen is so clean and finger gestures can be made very smoothly.
