I don't have a case or screen protector just yet for my iPad. What is a cost effective way to keep the screen clean and remove fingerprints?
Use the Fingerspoo iPad wallpaper and you won't notice fingerprints anymore.
I LOVE the iKlear products. I spilled hot tea all over my MacBook Pro about 3 weeks after I bought it. There were streaks of tea all over the screen and external case. Luckily I was using a moshi keyboard cover which kept the liquid out of the keyboard area and probably saved my machine.
After I completely tore it down to make sure there was no internal damage, I tried cleaning the screen with a microfiber cloth and a small amount of water. It worked alright but I could still see the streaks and even fingerprints and keyboard marks when I held the screen up to a light. So I spent some time researching the best external cleaning solution and iKlear seemed to be held in high regard.
I got this kit from Amazon and it's truly amazing how well the solution and cloths work to clean the glass screen. The tea streaks and every other little smudge and bit of goo came off like magic. Literally takes about 15 seconds to clean the screen to a mirror finish. It works very well on the aluminum case and keyboard as well.
I also use it on my iPod Touch and Motorola Droid. Since the iPad is made out of the same stuff as the MBP and the iPod, I highly recommend this stuff. You spent all that money on your iPad, i think it's worth an additional 20 bucks or so to get a good cleaning solution.
- Almost every Apple product except the iPad seems to come with a microfibre cloth, which I would recommend you use.
- If you have a case for your iPad, I have seen some people buy a regular microfibre cloth and keep it in the case. Maybe even cut it to about 1/4 the size for portability.
- The Apple store actually sells little microfibre cloths. They are pretty expensive though and are VERY small.
- Use your shirt.
In Belgium, we don’t have “real” Apple Stores yet, but we do have Switch, which is the official Apple reseller in our country.
Anyway, they sell this iClean product which can be used to clean your Mac. Guess what? It also works fine for iOS devices. It comes with a microfiber cloth included and it works really well for me.
