    I've looked around on here and really can't seem to find anything. I have been using some 3M wipes, but I guess I ran out of them (can't find them ANYWHERE).

    I've read about iKlear and iClear (I think that's them). One's supposedly messes up the screen, the other's great. Those 3M wipes seemed to work ok, but I didn't see them last time I was at CompUSA (that's where I bought them last).

    I really don't want to spend all that much to clean it, but I do want it to be clean. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to use? I'm going to the big city later today (maybe the Apple Store tomorrow) and would appreciate everyone's suggestions.

    I recommend isopropanol. It's an alcohol that you can readily buy in stores (apparently)...I'm a scientist and *cough* borrow *cough* mine from work though!

    You could also get a microfiber cloth, put water on it, and clean it like that. I've tried other things on other lcd's and the old fashion water and a cloth works, its cheap also :D.

    if you mix butter with vodka this makes a very good screen cleaner for TFT screens, this is what sony use (see sony.com for more details)

    A big healthy spit on it definitely works especially right after some burritos.

    Well, I guess that settles it. I'm buying burritos tomorrow...

    JK. I'll get some iKlear if they have any at the Apple Store in San Antonio.

    Another vote for iKlear "Apple Polish" spray and custom rag. :)

    Does an excellent job of creating a clear, grease and streak free shine.

    I only wish that it had anti-static properties as dust just JUMPS onto my screen within minutes of cleaning. :(

    Highly recommend Klear Screen ( don't know if same as iKlear but seems likely)

    you can clean iPhone, iPod, any laptop screen, any tv screen (Great for LCD/plasma/rear projection) Buy it a big bottle and get the kit where you get two polishing cloths (one of them furry like a wash cloth and the other the microfiber deal) The furry ones are great at getting smudges and the fine polishes just beautifully.

    i would brush my teeth with it if i could.

    Way to go peer pressure as I ordered some iKlear two minutes ago.
