    I know you can't use liquids so what works well?

    I use the cloth that came with my tv. If necessary, I lightly dampen a dish towel and wipe and dry the screen.

    Hi Peter - LOL! :D We must be about the same age - I do cleaning on occasion but not much of a priority! :)

    For myself, I simply use one of those cloths meant to clean CDs/DVDs/glasses/etc. - just do a very light dampening w/ water - works fine for me (remember just a slight dampness is needed) - Dave :thumbs:

    I have a butt load of different microfibers. I dampen a small area of the microfiber with some touch screen cleaner, wipe the screen then take the dry part of the microfiber and wipe the screen down.

    Eyeglass cleaner and the microfiber cloth that came in the itty bitty eyeglass kit.

    Yes, it has. You just can't see the damage. Your screen catches fingerprints easier now than it did before.

    Apple recommends only a clean, lint free cloth for a reason.

    No solvents.

    No soaps.

    No cleaners.

    Hi G Man.
    I am 70 plus!
    The plus is a secret!
    BTW I do sometimes clean the screen.

    ohhh it shows 8 million finger prints instead of 7 million... yes it's a tragedy......... my iPad was a fingerprint magnet the day I got it and it still is.... ill keep using glass cleaners to clean glass easily... go ahead and scrub yours with a micro fiber... your energy wasted not mine. (I've been cleaning touch screens displays this way for years.... don't tell me I'm wrong)

    When I went into the Mac store to beg them to install a MOSHI screen protector the gracious tech spent ages with a micro cloth and some kind of distilled water product.
