So after like 4 days of use, the once wonderful screen is now covered in fingerprints and bits of dust ect. What the best and safest way to clean it?

Is dampening a micro fibre cloth with water and wiping the screen in a circular motion ok? I'm a bit worried about wiping the dust off and getting some stuck under the edge of the screen. Please help? :(

Just a little damp, yea...maybe alcohol is better. Never really cleaned screens before with any liquid honestly, lol. But I think it'll work better.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...

I would just use a damp micro fiber cloth, thats what I use on my 3DS anyway havent cleaned the Wii U game pad yet. And if fingerprints and dust bother you, you might want to look into some screen protectors.

IGN recommends ONLY water.

Thanks, ign confirmed that the circular motion is best as I first thought. :)

Cleaning it now.

@ tasuki - I'm looking into getting a good screen protector, I can't stand fingerprint marks on the screen.
