Keeping my IPad screen clean

My screen gets so mucky after just a day or two. I use an ordinary glass cleaner which removes about 90% of the smears. What do you use please ?

I use lens wipes, as they dont scratch the surface , but I've just read the box and it suggests using Smartphone wipes and tablet wipes. Must admit I've never looked for them.

I just use a barely damp microfibre cloth, then wipe it with another. Keeps it clean.
I didn't think you should use lens wipes on IPad screens, but I may have got that wrong 😕

Same as Auntieflo, just damp enough to get the smears off and then an immediate polish. Sometimes I’m horrified at the state of the screen hmm.

Me too cornergran can't possibly be me leaving bits of chocolate stuck to the case and screen grin

My iPad was a health hazard until the GSs were old enough to have iPhones.

I use a multi purpose cloth with the nubbly bits. The name escapes me.

I am beginning to think Aldara wiped my vocabulary along with the cancer cells.

Wet wipe.

Either wipes made for glasses (but they're not good environmentally) or glasses cleaner and a soft cloth.

A minuscule part of white vinegar and water and polish with a soft clean cloth.
Glass cleaners leave a residue that builds up, they should not be used.

I use the same method as I use with my glasses - I breathe on it then wipe the mist off with whatever T-shirt I am wearing - works perfectly every time !
