I have my 3ds for almost a month already, and it is begining to be a bit oily from my hands especially the inner upper half, fingerprints are on it all the time
so, what is the best solution to clean the 3ds so it can be as shiny as new?

Try to buy a nice microfiber cloth. One was included in the 3DS Kit I bought from GameStop, and it works like a charm. Also try to wash your hands off before handling your 3DS, so it won't get oily as fast.

That part doesn't have a screen in it so it doesn't matter.

Hi mate! I use a screen cleaner kit i bought in the local store, it comes with a small spray bottle with "screen cleaner" and a sponge with a cloth like surface, plus a aluminum case that holds the two together.. I would recommend spraying the sponge, and not at the 3ds directly with the cleaner spray.

Clean the whole 3ds with this and it'll look as good as new

And i would recommend the hori screen protector, to keep it scratch free as well.

Microfiber cloth's the best one you can use to wipe it. Regular towel or your shirt can scratch the screens. Also use a can of compressed air before applying the Hori screen protectors. Wipe the screen first with the fiber cloth then spray it. That way you can get even the smallest debris off of the screens. Make sure you do it somewhere where there's not much clothes around. On a table at your dining room or something. Lint could be floating around if you do it in a room.

    I don't like popcorn at all; bland taste, and it got ruined for me because of high school - the school cafeteria reeked of microwave popcorn for several days...utterly revolting, couldn't even enter the place it stunk so bad.
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Nah, for movies I'd rather get a bag of lollies instead of popcorn.

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Not lollipops; what Americans would call "candies" or just "candy" IDK. Before the pandemic, cinemas used to have buckets of different ones - sour cola, sour watermelon, and many others; I used to get a scoopful of two or three types into a paper bag to have throughout the movie.
