    Hey :) so I have an iPad 2 for a year now. I use it with a stylus and a screen protector so I'm not mostly worried about cleaning it, as it doesn't get all that dirty.

    However, I've never done a "serious cleaning" with any kind of product. I only rub it gently with a soft cloth that comes in the cleaning kit for glasses... Along with it comes a cleaning spray that has the following ingredients: water, organic compunds, solid detergents, other non-toxic compounds.

    Do you think this is good to clean the screen (not applying directly to it; applying to the cloth first) in case I want to do so? If not, what to use? As I don't live in a major town with Apple stores, getting specialized products like iKlean doesn't apply...

    Thank you :)

    I use a microfiber pad that I found at Staples.


    Only once have I resorted to a liquid cleaner, and that was supplied with a pair of reading glasses. Usual lens care instructions app,y. Man made fibers only. Never use paper towel or anything else with wood fibers in it, no abrasive cleaners, or anything you even suspect may be abrasive. Solvent cleaners will damage the oleo phobic coating so use sparingly, if at all.

    Thank you for answering Kevin :) I do not have any Stapples around but as soon as I find one I will buy one of those pads.

    However, I wonder if anyone could provide a simple yes/no answer to my question about the spray, as english is not my first language and I'm having trouble figuring out the meaning of the technical words in your answer.

    Thank you again :D

    It depends on the spray.

    The only way you know for sure is if it is Apple Approved like sprays by Monster.
