    Post Cleaning Your Screen
    For a lot of people, it might just really bug you because of all the smudges and prints on your screen. Possibly, it might just look unprofessional for you. Either way, I have a solution for safely cleaning your iPhone's screen making it incredibly smooth to the touch.

    -What you'll need:
    1. - Lens Cleaner OR Contact solution works as well
    (This solution is only for glasses/contact wearers sorry )
    2. - A paper towel or clean cloth/rag
    3. - Your iPhone/iPod Touch

    First, dispense the solution onto the cloth. This will prevent any stray drops from rolling and entering the iPhone through the home button. Now, simply wipe the cloth over the drops and follow through until the cloth has covered the entire device. Repeat the drying process until the surface is completely dry and smooth.

    *****DO NOT USE WINDEX OR ANY OTHER GLASS CLEANER SIMILAR TO IT AS IT IS KNOWN TO CAUSE ISSUES TO THE DEVICES TOUCH INTERFACE*****

    ***I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES TO HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE OF THE DEVICE YOU USE THE METHOD WITH IN ANY WAY. I HAVEN'T YET ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM WITH THIS METHOD, SO IF YOU ENCOUNTER A PROBLEM, CONTACT ME AT ANY AVAILABLE METHOD.

    I breath heavy on the screen to get some moisture on it then use a soft cloth or my shorts (whichever is closer)
    As an added benefit like a Friday after work the screen has an alcaholic clean
    My signiture? Whats that...............

    (This solution is only for glasses/contact wearers sorry )
    2. - A paper towel or clean cloth/rag

    First, use your solution to squeeze a line of small drops across the device from the top. Now, simply wipe the cloth over the drops and follow through until the cloth has covered the entire device. Repeat the drying process until the surface is completely dry and smooth.

    can i make one change to this? i suggest dispensing the solution onto the cloth instead of the device. this prevents any stray drops from rolling and entering the iphone through the home button.

    great write-up.

    Please, if a Mod sees this, I would like to above post removed as it is spam to the thread and the forums.

    Yes, seeing as it is capable of cleaning other electronic devices such as a computer, it would certainly suit the iPhone.

    Microfibre / microfiber cloth!

    It cleans it perfectly. The fibers absorb oils, dust, etc with the huge surface area from the micro fibers and leaves it looking new in seconds. I use them to clean my phone, monitors, tv, laptop, digital camera lens, etc. They work like a charm.

    Just don't use dryer sheets when you wash them or the residue from the dryer sheet will ruin their amazing properties.

    i dont like invisibleshield - makes the screen feel "thick" or something - plus couldn't never get mine to line up right ended up sending it back for a refund.

    oh and i just clean mine with the bottom of my shirt like the above

    I clean mine with my shirt. When I really get into it I take the phone out of the case,wipe it down with a windex wipe, and then stick it back in the garage.

    That is so obvious though. iPhones do not belong in the dryer in the first place. And if, by chance, it does happen to be inside of a dryer when it is turned on, why would they stop to put in a dryer sheet? Your comment is totally illogical.
    If I helped you, then hit the "Thanks!" button please.

    Errrm. They do not use a dryer sheet when drying the micro fibre cloth that they use to clean their phone with...they don't dry the phone lolol. This way the freshly cleaned cloth is residue free
