iPad Screen Cleaning Tip

With everyone owning one device or another that has a touch screen, there are a lot of us constantly cleaning the screens. The iPad’s large screen particularly shows all of the smudges from touching the screen with your finger. Apple says that you shouldn’t use window cleaners, solvents, or alcohol to clean the screen. Apple has put an oleophobic coating on the screen that doesn’t prevent finger prints from appearing but does make it easier to remove finger prints, and therefore it is easy to clean the iPad screen with a microfiber cloth.

I recently came across a recommendation for a package of three microfiber cloths available at Home Depot for $5.97 per package. I picked up a package of the Unger Microfiber Mirror & Glass Cloths, which you can see in the picture above. Each cloth is 12.5 x 12.5 inches and is machine washable. They are big enough to easily clean my iPad’s screen, yet can be folded up small enough to fit inside the booq BOA folio that I carry my iPad in.

I find the Unger Microfiber cloths do a great job of cleaning all the touch screen devices that I own, and they are cheap enough to have a couple of packages in the house.
