My DS Lite and DSi were taken away last semester due to poor grades, which were completely my fault because I was too absorbed in video games. Anyway, since I've gotten A's now, I recently got them back, but my DSi has some nasty smudges on it's screens that are, by now, about 5 months old. Without having to go out and buy an electronics-cleaning spray, how can I clean these smudges? They're not coming off no matter how much I rub it with a dry cloth.


EDIT: Erm, I put this in the wrong forum...it should have been in the DS Lite/DSi section...anyway, can anyone help me?

Get a good cloth (like the micro-fibre glasses cleaning clothes), and make sure it has no grit on.
Then first if all, try just breathing on the screen to create a mist on it, then rubbing it off. Circular motions are best, but for some of the more stubborn pieces, you may need to press harder, or even use your fingernail (through the cloth, of course).
This usually works for me, even with more stubborn marks, but if that's not effective after a few tries, then try a glasses cleaning fluid if you have one. If that doesn't work, then an electronics-cleaning spray is probably your only choice.

Please sign my petition to get a European (and Australian) release for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked for the 3DS.
Don't let Europe be deprived of another amazing game.

you should always breathe on it before wiping, or at least create some sort of mist, otherwise you risk putting scratches on you hardware, rather than simply cleaning smudges.

ALWAYS! Never dry clean! Same thing with eyeglasses.
