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.

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.

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.

I heard that Hori makes some good ones.
