    I have a screen protector on my ipad 2 and it has some finger smudges on it.

    I want to clean it, but I don't want to damage the protector or my ipad at all, and I also don't want to risk the screen protector coming loose.

    What is the best way to clean it?

    I my self went to my local walmart or electronic store and bought a bottle of plasma/LCD cleaner in the t.v. Area and they come with a cleaning rag. Just spray the rag with a little bit and it is enough to clean my iPad and iPhone.

    I just use a micro fibre cloth on mine. I have to say the screen protector is harder to clean than the makers screen & seems to attract more fingerprints!

    I believe that I have seen an Apple guideline that anything containing alcohol should be avoided. I use a set of cloth cleaners from iKlear that are excellent.

    If they say that then I say bull pucky. The best thing to use with electronic instruments is alcohol, and the higher the percentage the better.

    What I use are simply with Wiss Eye Glass Cleaner towels. They are pre moistened (alcohol) and do a great job of cleaning your screen. Walmart in the eye department, I think 3.00 for a box of 50.

    Screen protection?

    Hi all,

    I've got a folding cover (like a book) but was wondering if ppl also would recommend a screen protector and does it affect the look and operation?

    Look forward to your replies.

    I also have a folding cover like a book, but I still use a screen protector. Mine works flawlessly. You honestly can't even tell it's there. If you are interested in the one I got, you can find it on Amazon under the name SGP iPad 2 3G Wifi Screen Protector Steinheil Series [Ultra Crystal].

    That's the piece I saw. I remembered the alcohol because I had used some soft paper for my glasses a few times and they contained alcohol. When I looked it up and saw this, which is what I had suspected, I went with the iKlear cloths which have a sponginess that opens up a bit when pressed into the screen. They remove the dirt far more effectively than the ones I have used in the past.

    When I was using mostly my fingers to manipulate the screen, I found that I was having to wipe it down fairly often. This is one of the reasons that I like styli, I don't need to clean the screen nearly as often and risk scratches.
