    I was attempting to put on BSE face skin, but decided against it because I want the Power Support. Sadly I decided after I attempted to put the BSE on once so there are water spots on the screen, similar to a window after a rain shower.

    Can I simply use a anti-static cloth I bought for my computer monitor? Or will that mess up the touch screen capabilities?

    i dont see how you water stained the screen if you removed the BSE right away? you should have wiped it down and been on your merry way.

    Wet it again and wipe it down with a clean dry cloth. I had a similar issue and that got rid of it.

    Yes it is vital. However, you are not going to hurt it like that so stop being OCD

    he has a point I watched a video review where they tried to break the iPhone through every day **** and they went as far as to tey forcably scratching the iPhone screen with keys only to see that it was impervious to such attacks.

    It's a glass screen. Put some windex on a clean lint free cloth and wipe it clean. That's what I do.

    In a pinch, I've been known to lick the screen and wipe it with my shirt. Works good too.

    I followed you up until licking the screen. Now I think we should take away your phone as you clearly pose a threat to it and your self. Now it is time for bed so I must tuck my iPhone in next to me.

    Be very careful about wetting the iPhone itself.

    My recommendation would be to use a slightly damp microfibre cloth or slightly damp kitchen roll.

    This should easily remove any residue.
