    I carry around a small blue microfiber cloth. Give it a but of push when you're wiping and the screen litterally looks day-one brand new

    A good slide across my pants usually does it for me. :)

    T-shirt, jeans. (much easier to keep clean without a screen protector. IMO)

    RainX? Does that really work for fingerprints? With the big grins, I'm not sure if you're serious or not and it would be nice to know before I go out and buy it. :)

    I have a guy at work who is thinking about returning his Droid because he's kind of OCD and the smudges are driving him crazy. :( I'd like to help him out if I can.

    I use my sunglasses bag and spray cleaner from Oakley. The cleaner is made specifically to clean oils and grime from your sunglasses and it works great on the droid screen.

    I use RainX, no joke. I'm careful not to let it get past the glass edge.

    Finger glides nicely for a while, then reverts to normal. No issues.

    Washing maching set on "Gentle" then a quick spin in the dryer...or my t-shirt...and if I feel like really spoiling it, the microfiber cloth I clean my glasses with.

    I use eyeglass cleaner (came with glasses from Sears) and a Viva paper towel, which has a soft-cloth texture. While I had a cold a few weeks ago, I also used a little dot of alcohol to clean the screen--really cleaned up those natural oils.

    Homemade glass cleaner:

    1 cup alcohol (as close to 100% as you can get)

    1 cup distilled water

    1 tablespoon vinegar

    Works like a charm.

    Is this a new thread on this topic? I think I already responded to one, but i generally just wipe mine on my t shirt or jeans. I used to be more cautious, but I've been doing this since Dec or Jan with no ill effects. :D

    Don't clean your screen with anything paper related: toilet paper, paper towels, etc. Just don't do it!

    Just like I clean eyeglasses; get some breath steam on the screen, and wipe it with the static-free microfiber cloth (Scotch) I use on my monitor screen. Just got my Droid a week ago and will order a Naked Case from Case-Mate shortly so that I never have to touch the screen again.
