    What is the best way to clean the screen of a iPad that does not have a screen protector overlay?

    My first unit had a protector applied at the time of purchase so I never got the "feel" of using one without a protector.
    Now using a new iPad I really like the look and especially the feel of the touch action without a protector but.... What is the best way to clean it so as not to loose the feel of whatever is coating the screen.

    It feels slipperier than a overlay and does not fingerprint much.

    I don't want to apply something that will take that away.

    Thank you !

    Apple says nothing other than a soft, lint free cloth. No chemicals whatsoever.

    I've had good luck with a microfiber cloth. Maybe I'm overly cautious, but I blow on the screen first to blow off anything like a grain of sand that might scratch.
    (I named my iPad "Titanic". It is syncing now)
