    When Baby (my iPad) needs her face cleaned, I use a microfiber cloth. I've found that the MysticMaid personal cleaning cloth is the best.

    I never use any type of cleaner on Baby's face. I use a microfiber cloth either dry or with a little water. Cleaners might damage Baby's delicate oleophobic coating. :p

    Thanks for the info. I have not cleaned mine yet but I will try the cloth that came with my Apple case first and if that doesn't work I have a nice microfiber towel I use on my phone that should work. I will have to check into the product you mentioned as well.

    Best Buy sells a blue spray liquid designed for big screen LCD/Plasma TV, with a micro fibre cloth.

    I assume this is the most gentle screen cleaner on the market. Works well on my iPad.

    Most big screen cleaners contain alcohol and/or detergent, that is likely to damage the oleophobic coating. Use at your own risk, but don't complain to Apple if you can't follow directions.

    Just read page 26 of the iPod users guide.

    "Don’t use window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean iPad. iPad has an oleophobic coating on the screen; simply wipe the iPad screen with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove oil left by your hands."

    Micro Fiber Clothes

    I got a package of 5 MFC from Harbor Freight that work great. My wife sewed 2 of them together to form a pouch for the Ipad and now I don't worry about putting it in my backpack.

    Damn I've been using baby wipes since packets are scattered over the house.
    Babys face and bottom both.......

    Haven't noticed any screen deterioration due to the moisturiser.

    I use a terry cloth towel. I run a corner of the towel under the sink and wipe my iPad. Then I use the dry part of the towel to wipe off the water. Then I roll up the towel and use it for a stand to lean the iPad against so that I can read email and the news while eating breakfast.

    Been doing this since I bought my ipad 5 months ago and the screen is fine.

    I use that cloth too. This is a glass screen, isn't it?

    I already have a screen protector to begin with, so I just use a wet-wipe to clean that.

    I think it's a polycarbonate. If you look at the screen an an oblique angle to the light you can see some surface texture that you don't see on glass. Polycarbonate is much harder than Acrylic so it would be a better choice for durability; but it's not 100% scratch-proof so keep that display clean and your fingernails trimmed!

    I think it is glass, but it has a coating that can be damaged by improper cleaning.
