    Apple says NOT to use any liquid cleaner on the screen, just a dry cloth. Don't know about you guys but my screen gets reeeally covered in finger prints! I tried using just a cloth for cleaning my glasses but it really did less than a stellar job. I saw in this sight's store some iKlenz solution, microcloth and bag for $19.95. So is it or is it not safe to use lens solution and do I really need to spend $20 bucks? I know the coating may not take kindly to something like Windex but shouldn't any eyeglass or camera lens solution work? You guys using anything? Oh - and what about anti-glare protection? Just a few days with my 3G and I can see glare can be a bit of a hassle but I hate to lose that nice touch on the naked screen. Opinions?

    I bought Rocketfish LCD cleaner/micro cloth at Best Buy. I use an anti glare screen protector that does a good job but it does get messy with fingerprints and a regular dry cloth doesn't work. But the manufacturer says I can use any household cleaner on the shield.

    I just use a $2 microcloth windowcleaner cloth from Aldi. Works great and for about two months or so. Then I get a new one and use the old for its original purpose.

    Check out 3M microfiber cleaning cloths. They have a smaller one that's for glasses and a larger one for tv's. I use the smaller glasses one and tuck it onto the apple case. Frequent wiping can help reduce build up.

    I just use a microfiber cloth I purchased at Target. A few swipes and the iPad looks brand new. No liquids needed!

    I also just use a microfiber cloth and it does the job perfectly. The screen looks like new with just a few wipes.

    I use a micro fiber cloth that came with my Monster flat screen cleaning kit. Never have a problem with it being clean. I also wash my hands every time I pick ip my iPad.

    Thanks all. What about the the anti-glare? To or not to? Do you find it gets in the way with the "touchiness"?
