My family got this for are TV's originally but my Dad used it for his laptop, he handed me it and I used it on my 3DS and it works but for precaution I spray the outside lightly a few times, and then use the remaining cleaner on the rag to clean the inside...or just spray some on the rag....

Its expensive so you might want to use it when it actually needs it, like when I have fascinated people and my sisters putting their potentially dirty hand on it.

Oh

now seriously, isn't there something that said you should not use liquid cleaners of any kind on the top screen?

I have not said anything like that but you should not use stuff like clorox....I just try not to spray directly where there are holes, like the speakers, wind things and mic.

I've been using underwear. It's the softest thing I could think of since I don't have any lint free cloths lying around.
Not sure if that's such a great idea though. Everytime I open it up new specks of dust fall on the screen and it's getting tiring wiping it off. It's kinda a losing battle when it comes to these things. Sooner or later you're gonna get scratches.

I don't like rubbing things against screens so I'll just try and live with the snots and saliva my friends got on all over my top screen. If it gets really bad I just might try that, but until then I can wait. Besides a clean screen doesn't improve resolution and with full brightness, the only time I can see any marks is when there is a black loading screen.

@Link79 All that happens to me is people who touch the top screen that don't know any better. Oddly even when my sister touches even the outside she leaves some kind of mutant sludge.

Pouring water on it is just sloppy. Dish washing machine is better. Preferably with Jet Dry to avoid watermarks and streaks.

I usually just take a pipe cleaner to the thing. Or I just take care of all my cleaning at once and put it on top of the car while I wash it.

@R-L-A-George: Oh, no my dear friend I believe you are mistaken. It is just silly to think of cleaning anything but a long tube with a pipe cleaner. That is the joke. Ho-ha-ha...

Of course. Water makes sense. I mean they do use a Plastic coating on circuit boards to prevent damage and there are chemical that you can use to prevent corrosion like CLR or you can use something like rubbing alcohol which is electronic friendly. Just use an air compressor at 80 psi to get all the water out before you turn it on again. But before you do all that make sure you kiss the Blarney Stone before you proceed.
