    Hey guys. Took my ipad outside and Now it feels "gritty" as I was sitting under a tree. Plus all the finger marks too.

    So what's the best way to clean up guys and girls?

    Microfiber cloth.... Simple and works great..... No need for special treated cloths or any other over marketed junk. Just get a microfiber cloth..... Simple.

    I dust the screen with a feather duster, then clean with a dry microfiber cloth.

    I use a microfiber cloth. Occasionally if it's really bad, like I had eaten pizza and was seeping grease through my fingers, I'll get a tissue just slightly damp, wipe over it, and then dry it with the microfiber cloth.

    You also need to wash the microfiber cloth occasionally, I just run it under water and then let it dry for a few hours.

    BTW, for those of you who don't wear eye glasses, this might not be obvious:

    Never use tissue, "Kleenex," toilet paper, paper towels, or any other paper product, no matter how soft it might feel. All paper is made from wood. You knew that already. But there are fine wood chips (very small, but still there) that will scratch any glass surface. It's not noticeable at first, but over time the scratches will appear (or the oleophobic coating will begin to come off).

    I've ruined many pairs of glasses not really understanding this for a long time. And in worst case, use Bron019's suggestion: Use your shirt.

    I clean my screen constantly. I was using a small cleaning cloth that came with my glasses but a microfiber cloth cleans much better and faster. Any stuck on food comes off fast with a little spit and a swipe of the microfiber cloth! :)

    I use a microfiber lens cleaner and cleaning solution for LCDs. I saw someone in *$ cleaning hers with a napkin. (shakes head)

    I use spit and one of my roomies t shirts....... :D

    Nah, just kidding folks, microfiber cloths do the trick eventhough Ive caught myself using a papertowel with a small mist of windex on it everyonce in a while.
