    Got my new iPad around 11 this afternoon and have been enjoying it ever since :) Fast forward a few hours later and I (obviously) have my fingerprints all over my screen. I'm wondering what are some safe and useful tips to clean the screen. Thanks :)

    What I do is use a micro-fiber cloth and glasses cleaner fluid. Spray some cleaner onto the cloth (not the iPad) and use that to wipe down the iPad screen.

    Microfiber cloth will remove them fine. No psecial cleaner needed. Try not to OCD about finger prints and just clean at the end of the day when you put it on charge.

    Enjoy!

    I have a large microfiber towel that I got in the auto parts section. With a new box of water on his wife anyways....No, really I dictated: flick a few drops of water on it and wipe away. I guess this dictation thing isn't perfect.

    Don't clean it unless you want to cause damages to the screen. :eek:

    I use a ShaggyMac microfiber cloth and if it's really dirty, ShaggyMac's "Optimist Prime" liquid solution. I probably won't use the liquid solution for awhile though, it should be fine just to use microfiber cloth until the oleophobic coating eventually wears off.

    Easiest way. I dampen one corner of a wash cloth (mine are all microfiber) wipe the prints off and turn it over and dry. Water and a soft cloth is all you need.

    A dry microfiber cloth is easiest and works just fine. I'm leery of using any kind of cleaning solution lest it damage the oleophobic coating.
