    Just for fun, how do you clean your screen? Pants leg? Shirt sleeve? What's the best way to clean the screen with a case on, since rubbing it on your pants or shirt is made more difficult with a case.

    I use the bottom of my shirt to wipe it off.

    I use a cleaning cloth. The one that came with my iMac. Shirts and pants can cause scratches.

    Microfiber cloth, slightly damp microfiber cloth, Lysol, or slightly damp hand.

    iKlear singles with the wet and dry. Wet is only good for once, but the dry lasts a while and you just toss it when done. You can also buy a spray bottle with microfiber cloths, but I find the dry disposables work better. Leaves a somewhat smudge resistant glossy feeling finish.

    Are you talking about when we are at home or on the go? I doubt people carry iKlear with them to work/school :p

    I just wipe it on anything I guess, i have a screen protector though

    I clean the screen on my pants. Been doing this since the very first iPhone. NEVER had a problem with scratches.

    Bleach, Comet and scouring pad. The bleach/Comet combination gives off such a pleasing aromo and the scoring pad really cuts the grime off.

    I carry a clean microfiber cloth in whatever bag I'm carrying (laptop briefcase, messenger bag, backpack). Moisten one end with water, dry with the other end. Works well when cleaning my iPhone 4, MacBook Air or Pro & iPad displays.

    I use the cleaning cloth that originally came with my 1G iPhone. A few wipes on the front and back of my 4, and it's nice and clean.

    Just made me wonder what the fabric of your pants is?
    I hope you at least use a discreet location on your pants.

    Actually, I use a microfiber however, in a pinch a brillo pad comes in handy:eek:. DICLAIMER on the brillo pad.

    I’ve had my 3gs for nearly 18 months and all I use is my shirt. No screen protector and my screen looks like new. Not a scratch on it. However it does spend most of it’s time in a Belkin leather flip case to protect the screen while in my pocket. But the cleaning itself has done no damage at all.

    i usually just use a microfiber...one time had a drunk friend use my phone and i guess he spit on the screen as he was talking so i had some spots that wiping would not take away lol, so i used radtechs spray which worked nicely.
