    Hi I have put a screen protector on my iPad 4, but am getting a few marks on there, what is the best way to clean the screen protector on my iPad, I have tried a cloth dry but still does not come up that clean. Any advice on cloths, or should I damp the cloth before trying to clean it. Thanks any advice.

    From a newbie Gremlin 56

    I personally would never use a dry cloth on anything like the screen.......dry can scratch, period.
    Use a damp micro fiber cloth...

    I recently applied a screen protector which is the Eaglepro, but it isn't really worth getting. I am going to be getting a different kind of screen protector for my ipad, so how would I replace the new screen protector and will it mess up my screen by replacing it?

    im using 5dollar worth of screen protector and within month already some scratches usually i clean it with tissue paper and water because i think to use micro fibre cloth on a cheap screen protector is too much but im planning to change to zagg hd once its available in my country hopefully soon:ipad-keyboard:

    I get cheap microfibre cloths from opticians or sunglasses outlet shops, they normally have a pack of three for a pound (UK £), I figure that if they are good enough for optical glasses they are good enough for my displays.

    Have a look at MOSHI XT screen protectors. You can find them in amazon and it runs for about $24. Well worth the price and so easy to put on with no bubbles to worry about. It is reusable by simply wash and let dry. I have gone thru a lot of protectors and finally bought this after a recommendation by another Moderator. Have a look and too bad the other didn't work out.

    I purchase a whole bag of 24 micro-fiber towels @ Sams Club for about $12.
    These are very high quality thick towels and work great for almost anything including cleaning the screen.

    Guys, you are just wasting your money. iPads do not need screen protectors. The screens are scratch resistant, since its inception. If you want to get rid of the glare, thats another story.

    If there are any prints and smudges, get eyeglass cleaning solution from Sears Opticals (and of course, a microfiber cloth). They sell a big bottle for $5 and it lasts forever. I use glasses and this liquid is used for cleaning all electronics screen and my few pairs of glasses, its been 3 years, still using the same bottle.
