    What kind of lint-free cleaning cloths do you use to clean/polish your iPhone?

    I'm about to make a trip to Walmart/Target and I was wondering what everyone uses to clean their iPhones. I bought a Pledge Soft Microfiber Dust Cloth (by Libman) last week at Walmart and it seems to leave behind these tiny, long microfibers that i need to wipe off with my finger or t-shirt. Maybe I'm supposed to wash the cloth before I use it?

    Or maybe I would be better off using disposable wipes like the ones made for the Swiffer?

    Or maybe the quick-drying microfiber towel I bought at an outdoors store for $10? It feels very high-quality though I haven't used it on electronics.

    I use the cloth that comes with the InvisibleShield. I won a pack of Zagg Wipes from a Twitter contest but haven't used them yet.

    I used to do that too, but I started carrying a cloth because using my shirt was scratching up my glasses when I cleaned them, so now I use it for both my glasses and the phone.

    ZEISS has a box of lens cleaning wipes at Walmart. I think the are a 50 pack for around $2-$3.

    I use them when the phone has ALOT of fingerprints or something on the galss, but most of the time it gets wiped with the shirt.

    I use the black cleaning cloth that used to come with the ipod touches and iphones. Works like a charm.

    The Oakley micro fiber bag that comes with the sunglasses works great and it also fits the iPhone perfect and prevents scratches when you carry it in your pocket.

    I worked over nights for best buy for a year and whenever we set up a new display we had to open new TVs and I'd take the cloths that came from the bag with the instructions.

    So between that and my iMac and LCD cloths, I have about 20 of them (15 still in the sealed plastic that work like a charm.

    I have this MacBook cleaning stuff that I got from my local Apple store. It's designed for the aluminium and the screen, and works perfectly on the iPhone 4 aswell. It came with a cleaning cloth, and the cleaning solution is in a spray bottle.

    It's in a clear bottle, and the liquid is green, if you're interested. I don't have the company's name to hand though.

    This. Can get one at places such as Wal-Mart for a couple of dollars as well. In the eyeglasses section.
