    I don't have a screen protector yet nor a nice little cloth with which to clean the screen. Any other suggestions? How may I clean it safely with materials I can find around the house?

    Thanks.

    I have had my droid for 6 months now. I've just used my breath and t-shirt. If it is really bad, just a soft towel and a dab of water.

    Edit: I don't have a screen protector.

    Investing in a screen protector is a very wise idea though. dancedroid

    I have a screen protector and I use either the cloth that came with my glasses or a hand towel. If its really bad (from makeup or hairspray) I might put a little (a VERY little) water on my fingers and follow that with the towel.

    invest in a microfiber or if you have an optometrist, just ask for one from them.

    No screen protector and 6 months of use. I vigorously rub the screen on my blue jeans to clean it, prolly ten or more times a day. Screen still looks like new. It's Gorilla glass.

    After a morning shower, I'll use the damp towel to clean it too.

    I just use any 100% cotton cloth. Dampened if needed at times.

    If you're really that worried, use tissues.

    But I don't think screen protectors are necessary. I've had my Droid since launch, and like most people use my jeans, shirt, whatever cloth is laying around to clean it.

    Still looks new.

    Agreed. You can get some from Automotive in pretty much any Walmart store. I bought one, cut it into a couple pieces and just store them around everywhere. The plus side is they clean pretty much any glass surface well, so you can justify keeping them in multiple places! Mine clean my droid, computer monitor, LCD tv, glasses, glass desk, etc.

    Tissue or paper towel is actually a bad idea as these are wood based products and can contain wood fibers that might scratch. 100% cotton or microfiber is best
