    I use "Lens Cleaning wipes" personally. But as Broomhead said, pull up shirt, slight spit spray, and wipe clean.

    Never ever use compressed air, like you may use for your keyboard or something.

    Don't use anything with alcohol in it on the screen. It will ruin it

    Yep. Never ever ever. Never put too much water either.

    Chit chat is not a iPhone forum, the op picked the correct forum. Stay on topic.

    OT: I usually just use my t-shirt for every day cleaning. To get the dirt that builds up in the USB connection and other areas I tear the corner of a magazine, fold it and use the edge.

    What you can do is get a microfiber cloth, dampen in, and use it on your screen. For the back you can use anything you want really lol as long as it's not abrasive or anything

    I wouldn't use regular paper towel...at least not on the back of earlier models(0g-3GS)... I would think wood fibers could be a little more abrasive than cotton and possibly make scratches on plastic...I use a dry cloth and breath...like cleaning glasses...yeah sometimes spit on finger to get something crusty loose...lol...

    Screen protectors on front and back so a quick Broomhead-style cleaning is all I do. Sometimes I'll use a damp cloth if I get some grease from food or something on it, but that rarely happens.

    Ethyl alcohol can always be used to disinfect phone. Or the regular hand sanitizer would suffice.
