    I don't have experience with screen cleaners, but you should avoid any cleaner that contains alcohol. The iPad's screen has an oleophobic coating, which means it lacks the affinity for oil (which minimizes smudges and fingerprints and make it easier to wipe em off). Alcohol from cleansers, including Windex, will strip off this coating. If you HAVE to use a cleaner, make sure it's OHP safe.

    You're actually better off not using a cleaner. Simply wiping the screen down with a clean, lint-free microfiber cloth every so often should eliminate fingerprints and smudges. That's what I do anyway, and the screen looks as brand new as when I bought my iPad.

    Use a pair of clean white mens cotton underware. It works wonders for smudges, etc, just blow your breath are troublesome spots and wipe.

    Yes it is unique although any material like cotton underware will work.

    I'm imagining using an iPad in public and whipping out a pair of underwear to clean the screen. ROFL.

    I'm thinking Fruit of the Loom would be the best brand.
