Hi al Just wondering what the safest way is for cleaning the screen of my ipad2 ?

Non alcoholic cleaner

Glasses cleaner solution and your microfibre cloth will work fine.

I believe that Bill Gates recommends you use a Brillo Pad!

I use a clean soft handkerchief dampened with distilled water.

I like wee eddies idea (not) but I have my iPad 2 in a protective all round cover. It protects the screen fine. Periodically I remove it, and clean with a micro fibre cloth.

My iPhone is protected with military grade otter box kit. Still remove the shell from time to time and clean the same way.

I have heard too many disaster stories not to.

This is what Apple sell Click Here

It is expensive but lasts a considerable time - still have at least two thirds left after two years.

Use it on iMac, laptops, iPhone, iPad, spectacles and my HD TV, it leaves no smears and cleans even the most marked screens.
