    What type of material was the cloth made of that once came with the iphone? It is by far the best for cleaning my iPad and iPhone. I have used a dozen other kinds and they just smear the screen with the oil from my fingertips. It must be some type of spacefcraft technology because it works like a magic eraser. The cloth from my 3GS is still my go to for cleaning my screens. Does anyone know exactly what it is or where I can purchase it?

    Please don't say it's simply microfiber, because the two aren't even comparable.

    Have you tried calling apple support and seeing if you can purchase one?

    There were 2 different ones.
    1 was a suede microfiber
    The other was a silk type microfiber.

    Not all microfiber cloths are created equal. The majority of them are either soft or silky, and both will just smear fingerprints instead of remove them. The absorbent kind (the suede I believe) is the best. I bought on eBay shortly after starting this thread. The company is called Pristine Screens and their product looks like it's going to work better than the official Apple cloth that I love so much. It's also 5x the size.

    Thanks for your input, minus the ICP post.

    But as stated before optical shops are a good place.
    eBay is always sketchy but there are some good places on zthere I am sure.

    those are pretty cool! :D I might have to order those I wish it was 2 for 1 instead of 3 for 2 because at $10 they seem a little pricey.

    I've never had problems removing smudges and fingerprints with any type of microfiber.
