Apple gives instructions to wet a soft cloth with water and done. What kind of soft cloth? Is an old tshirt good? I've read some use cloth, like those used to clean glasses, camera lenses. Lately, I've just been wiping the screen against my t-shirt/stomach...

Can you give me some advice please?

I have a new ipad mini 4. playing lots with procreate, sketches ll by tayasui, notability, paper, day one, adobe sketch, etc...some with the pencil by 53, some work with fingers,...I am kinda liking the pencil by 53. Seems accurate enough for my heavy handed rough work i like to do...

I keep the ipad in apple's back and front cover. The simple stuff, though i may add a keyboard as front cover if i can find something i like...

thanks for help, go in peace...

Apple stores only use water
Uh not the Apple stores around me. They still use either whoosh or Clens by bausch and lomb. They used to sell both. However to the original OP I only use a microfiber cloth made by "MOBiLE Cloth" dry daily and if heavily soiled some "omni cleanz" by Radtech.

Bought this on all the recommendations and this really works. Screen sparkles after cleaning and no fingerprint problems. Thanks for the info.
After using Whoosh for a few months, I've found that the more I use it the more I have to use it. So I've now gone back to iKlear.

What ever happened to Zagg Foam Gadget Clean? I like the product and still have have a small amount left, but now it seems to only be available on Amazon and a few other online places. It is no longer on Zagg.com

I think it had issues with EPA certification and they no longer make it. Carcinogen content, or something like that.

Anyway, I use the stuff my ophthalmologist gave me with my glasses. It's a mix of alcohols, water, and a little surfactant (soap). Works great with a microfiber towel for cleaning grease and fingerprints from the iPad screen.

microfibre cloth and breath to moisture the screen... if I ever remember to wipe it.

I try to avoid using my sleeve because I have a dog and hence the sleeve may have some sand particles on it. That would be a nasty surprise after swiping the screen :D
