    In the ipod manual, it says to use a slightly damp cloth. Does the cloth that comes with the iPod work?

    Also, the iPod cloth only seems to spread smudges around. For example, I will wipe horizontally and it will be perfect, but horribly smudged when viewed vertically. How can I truly clean the screen?

    I use a slightly damp micro-fiber cloth, which seems to do the job quite well.

    Just rub for as long as it takes, it will eventually get clean. :)

    I've never thought of that, but I bet it works pretty well. :D

    I just use a disinfecting wipe to clean it and the cloth that comes with the ipt to wipe it dry

    That's disgusting. That screen attracts basically every germ that's ever come in contact with your hand.

    So no kiss? :(

    I have seen bad effects of chemicals on LCD screens before (my friend was an idiot and cleaned his with Windex, it seeped straight through. I don't touch any screen with chemicals anymore unless I wipe them off immediatly, so all I do with my Touch is wipe it with a specialized cloth.
