    It worked.

    I use the small cloth used for cleaning eye glasses. Dry works fine. Small enough to tuck into my iPad case.

    As previous posters mentioned: Microfiber cloths work extremely well. I also use my glasses cleaning cloth.

    Yikes!! I'm pretty sure you don't want to use ANY type of solvent to clean the iPad screen. Pretty good chance it will dissolve the oleophobic coating. And definitely do not use paper products. They are contain tiny wood fibers. Use soft cotton or special optical products only.

    Alcohol and baby wipes, equally Yikes!!

    Hmmm.....wonder what an oleo phobic coating might be.

    Something scared of oil.

    Wonder how many windex cleanings are required to dissolve it?

    Can't answer that one, but I don't want to be the one to test it.

    Just take a soft clean cloth, microfiber works well, and lightly let it drape across the ipad a few times to make sure that anything gritty is off the screen before you apply pressure. Then just wipe the screen off until it looks beautiful again.
