    So we all just spent hundreds on a new iPad, how do we keep it clean?

    I got an in-store demo on the smart-cover at the Apple store, and an employee there showed me something I haven't seen anyone else do.

    If you fold the smart-cover into a triangle (the typing set) without magnetically attaching it, you can use it as a scrub to wipe smudges off the screen. Maybe this has been posted before but it's a good tip that I think many people haven't heard.

    So, cleaning the screen is easy enough...any tips for cleaning the body? Rubbing alcohol? Windex? (a la My Big Fat Greek Wedding? :p )

    I use the moist towelettes bought from walmart for $2 for 24 wipes. Name brand is Nice n clean
    They are electronic cleaning wipes. It restores the screen to like new condition. I also use the same wipe to wipe down my pc monitor, cell phone, ipod touch- so each towelette will clean about 4 items.
    For cleaning the back, just a damp cloth will work fine. I usually only get a little dust on the back- nothing major.

    Realize that when the smart cover is folded into a stand, one of the surfaces might pick up stuff from the support surface. Make sure it is thoroughly clean ... you do not want to scrub your screen with embedded dirt and grit.

    Automatic Dishwasher

    I clean my iPad in the dishwasher. Be sure to use the top rack only! You don't want to melt your iPad during the dry cycle. I find that Sunlight OxiAction dishwashing gel works best to clean the iPad while leaving a nice lemon scent. However... I did find that using the dishwasher rendered my particular iPad inoperable, but your results may vary.

    Good luck should you decide to use my method to clean your iPad. Oh! Almost forgot! Be sure to use a drying agent such as Jet Dry to prevent unsightly spotting on that beautiful glass surface.:D

    I got a pair of microfiber clothes from my local Lowe's. One happened to match my wifes bright green smart cover. They work great.

    Yeah, I'd never clean my screen like that lol, my cover is always picking up stuff. I used to use a cloth that came with my hdtv. But I recently put a screen protector on it, so now I just use whatever cloth is at hand at the time. (scratch proof ftw!) :D

    Spent last year cleaning the iPad with baby wipes and had no problems. Started doing the same with the iPad2.

    Screens smooth as a babys bottom now.......
