    Hi all,

    I get all sorts of crap on my hands during the day, and I pull out my new touch at random times to do random things, so I don't always have time to give my hands the old scrub down.

    Is there any types of things I should avoid having on my hands in order to preserve the freshness of the touch screen? I know I should avoid obvious things like paint, gasoline, etc. What else is there? Maybe throw out something that isn't as obvious.

    Thanks!

    Well for one, you don't ever put your finger on the touch screen itself, you put it on the glass that is several millimetres above the touch screen. So basically anything you wouldn't normally put on glass...

    I second the Tuffshield. Used it since it was released.

    I would even just get a sticky screen protector (the ones that are easy to come off) and then when it gets too dirty, take it off and put a new one on. Or just carry a cloth around with you and wipe off atleast one finger before you use your touch.

    I have the Power Support Crystal Film Set as well, and I second Crees! comments. It's easy to clean and take on and off...a great product!
