    Hey. Recently bought iPad 3 Screen has a lot of finger prints on it as the little kids can't stay away from it. Was wondering how to best clean it before putting a screen protector on ?

    You will receive a variety of replies to your question.

    I use a high quality optical cloth used for cleaning coated lenses.
    Use the cloth for your screen only.

    I don't have a screen protector and don't feel one is required with the use of a smart cover.

    "Small" hands are another matter. Suggest keeping your expensive device out of reach.
