    I have iKlean for cleaning my Mac Book Pro and 23" Apple cinema display for Mac Pro. However, found that best way to clean oil from fingers is with the black velvet-like cloth that came with my iTouch; no solution necessary.

    Indeed although I cannot remember the name of the screen protector that Apple imbeds in the screen, but would think prudent not to shorten it's life with cleaning Solutions.

    I got the Monster screen cleaning kit from Best Buy. I don't be using the solution with the kit but the HUGE microfiber cloth that came with it works perfectly. Doesn't even take any pressure to get the screen looking like new again... just a soft swipe with the huge blue cloth and all is clean.

    A microfiber cloth and a solution of the following works really well. I also use this for cleaning bathroom mirrors which stops steam build up on glass.
    Mix a solution of 1/4 pint of white distilled vinegar, 1.5 pint distilled water, 1 tablespoon lemon juice (no sweeteners or extracts) and 2 tablespoons liquid dish detergent non lotion. The dish detergent works to remove dirt and grime, and the lemon juice creates a sparkling finish while the vinegar stops steam build up and streaks. Fill a spray bottle to dispense the glass cleaner following the procedure. Now if you use your laptop in the Library a lot thin this may be the real tric... :)

    Since the screen is essentially glass you can use water, no need for exotic liquids to clean it, IMHO.

    Microfiber cloth works great--as someone said just swiped it across and instantly clean.

    Just like someone else posted above, Monster Screen Cleaner is where it is at. I've been using this stuff for years on my expensive electronics and have been extremely impressed. It isn't cheap, but it lasts a long time. I've been using it on my IPhone for quite some time and it has produced great results. Tried it a few times on my fingerprint'd Ipad and it worked great also. I get mine at Best Buy.

    Dry microfiber cloth is your friend. 3M makes different sizes and grades. I bought a couple of small lens cleaning clothes just for my 3G. Funny how I'm buying stuff for the 3G and I don't even have a ship date yet. When I say funny I mean very sad.:( Ok, I'll go back to staring at my ipad dock now...

    I use the cloth that came with my iPod Touch...I'm really surprised the iPad didn't come with one tho. Even the HP Laptop I bought a few months ago came with a microfiber cloth.

    someone earlier posted the apple pdf info for the ipad... & it has a section on cleaning it... stating not to use cleaners, etc & just use a soft, lint-free cloth... because doing otherwise could affect the surface coating

    (I notice that they even tell us how to 'hold' an ipad)

    I will try to attach a screenshot of the info here....
