    With all the finger prints more visible on the bigger screen what is the best to do? A simple cloth?

    By the way I love my new toy

    Same as an iPhone, but with a little more elbow grease

    Wiping the screen with a tissue worked fine for me, although I hope I'm not introducing tiny scratches that I can't see.

    Clean, but very slightly damp (with unadulterated water) microfibre cloth is perfect for the job.

    Wash your hands (with dishsoap) right before using.
    Or use a stylus.

    The best way to clean it is to never get it dirty.

    1200 grit sandpaper. takes that pesky glossy surface down a few notches so you can view your ipad in bright sun.

    Lens cleaner

    I use lens cleaner and soft cloth to clean screen. Works great!

    I use the soft cloth that came with my "Monster Cleaner". The same stuff you use to clean LCD and plasma tv's

    Yeah wonder how a screenprotector would help. Or screw up sliding across the screen

    I feel bad your your skin if it has no natural oils.

    Any microfiber cloth will work well.

    Sprits with a little water if need be. Or cleaning spray like iClean/iKlear--though that's not really needed for the iPad. Just for tvs etc. with coatings where you don't want to use windex and water may streak.

    Microfiber cloth for the finger prints. A very slightly damp cloth or soft paper towel for the stuff that does not come off without dissolving it. A microfiber cloth may not remove all things on the iPad. If you have to rub too hard, use a little dampness.

    Dishwasher on Hot. Use liquid soap or the powdery kind can leave streaks that are impossible to get off the glass. I find the basic cycle does the trick, no need for the heavy duty wash.

    Good luck!
