I'm very meticulous about the cleanliness of my 3DS. I always give the whole thing a good wet wipe down when it gets even a little smudgy to keep it nice and shiny as new. How clean do you keep yours and how often do you clean it?

I keep it very clean. Lately the over protective person in me has died down and I haven't cleaned it a lot, but I get real annoyed when someone touches the top screen. I try to wipe away the smudge right away. Always clean that stupid circle pad smudge when I see it too.

Very clean. Since I don't use it, it doesn't get dirty.;)

mine has a small crack on the 3ds screen but its only noticeable without the 3d effect on. also everytime i turn around something ends up in a crevice... the outside coating must have worn off too because i cant get fingerprints off it easily anymore. o well... awaiting a redesign before i get a new one.

If it has smudges and fingerprints, I don't do anything. I really don't care how clean it is. (Unless of course, it's covered in dirt or something)

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

What are you guys talking about? Doesn't the thing still attract dust like a magnet anyways? Mine does. D:

Btw how waterproof is a 3ds? I had a friend who dropped his ds in a stream and it hit a rock and after 3 seconds of pure shock he picked it out of the water and it was fine.

Very waterproof that clear plastic casing around the top of the 3DS is a waterproofer. Iwata came up with the idea because he and Miyamoto like to shower together so they thought it would be a great if they could play Mario Kart 7 together when they take a bath.

obsessively clean. It bothers me when it has any imperfections at all. When there is an issue, its all I can see until I take care of it.

It has a shield of dust over it so it should be pretty clean underneath it.

Uncomfortably dirty.

I often try to wipe off any smudges, scratches or fingerprints I happen to see. I think it looks nice and shiny when it's spot-free. :)
or maybe I'm just picky about how it looks all the time

I like to think I keep mine quite clean actually. Maybe not as clean as if I were planning to reapply the screen protectors because, let's face it. No-one lives in complete isolation from the environment. . . well maybe everyone but bubble boy.

But yea, I think I keep mine fairly clean.

I have seen some pretty nasty ones though. I once saw someone with a DSLite that was so grubby, they had dark brown hand oils seeping down the inside of the clear layer on their "white" system. . . . and another time, I saw someone else making notes to themselves with a black Sharpie around the speakers of their also "white" DSLite (like this, but with more English and ink). :P

I keep mine exceptionally clean but I still get the occasional circle pad ring and line marks on my top screen. That can be annoying but I just use a soft cloth to wipe it clean. Oh and I always wash my hands before using my system. :D
