Any suggestions on cleaning the iPad/iPhone?
I use Anti-Static/Alcohol Free Electronic Cleaning Wipes by the company nice'n clean that I picked up at Wal-Mart or Target.
Alcohol wipes on an oleophobic coating? I hope we don't see you complaining about your damaged screen in a few months.
I don't know if you've got special requirements but I've never really worried about bugs and beasties on my stuff. People have got immune systems for a reason.
I'd go as far as saying over-use of disinfectant and antiseptic is a bad thing as you risk breeding resistant bacteria.
I haven't read it yet, but the recent thread iPad Refresh might have some suggestions.
Short wavelength germicidal UV light. Two minutes on each side. Longer if you are dealing with a bacterium that produces spores.
Where do you grab one of those? Local walmart?
for cleaning the ipad screen i use the apple microfiber cloth that came with my ipod touch. for cleaning the back i would just dampen a paper towel or even the microfiber cloth and wipe the back then dry it cleans my ipad fine.
dont get the std's on it
I don't buy lab equipment, but offhand I would guess Fisher. Its a chamber, about 2 square feet inside with UV lamps.
I just wipe off the screen with my t-shirt every couple of days, but only if I haven't first wiped my nose on the shirt.
Still haven't gotten a proper case for the thing.
Been discussed before:
But remember, YOU are "germier" than your iPad/iPhone
what... did you get pee splashback when you used it the bathroom?
just to be clear, is this asking how to kill germs that you put on the ipad.. from yourself?
This thread reminds me of the mother that still sterilizes her 6 month old's bottles while he crawls around licking the floor.
You could use spic'n'span. It's a glass cleaner and disinfectant + it kills H1N1!
i could've sworn he said alcohol FREE
Two minutes in the microwave on "defrost" will kill everything - including your iPad so you won't have to worry about any more germs - LOL!
That's what you get from iPorn.
I just wipe mine down with iKlear Apple Polish. I've used on all my Apple products for years. Works great. Don't know if it is a good disinfectant as it is alcohol and ammonia free, but it sure makes my iPad shine and it is antistatic too.
I don't use anything fancy, just the sleeve of whatever I'm wearing to clean it. I don't worry about 'germs', that's what flu shots are for.
I am also looking for a good disinfectant to use on the iPad. I'm a little hesitant to use anything like a household disinfecting cleaner (e.g. Lysol, Clorox, etc.). My 2-year old daughter has pink-eye, and I didn't want to keep the iPad from her just because she's sick. We're thinking it might be a good idea to keep it disinfected for the next few days, until she's feeling better, to minimize the risk of her sharing it with the rest of the family. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
We just got some iPads donated for patient use at the hospital I work for so we will have to be doing this. We have otterbox defenders for them with the screen protectors. So I was figuring to use the normal wipes we use for everything else and just replace the screen protector every few months if it gets bad.
The only surefire way to disinfect an iPad is boil it in water.
