    After I removed this hair from the upper right corner of my invisible shield screen protector with scotch tape, my fingers left two big brown finger prints on the adhesive side. Now this doesn't affect gameplay and most games don't have you touching that high, but it's really distracting and annoying. It looks like a mini dog crawled under the protector and left a big turd there. Now I don't know how to get the prints off. Help?

    Out of the question. And I don't know if we have rubbing alchohol around the house, I'll look though.

    I'm thinking about putting some latex gloves on and putting some soap under there, think that'll work?

    But I just got this one today, and my parents would be really pissed if I asked to order another set. Plus, these were my christmas presents. Anywho, I managed to make it look less ugly by applying and ripping scotch tape from the offending spot, and then using the credit card method to rub stray dust out one the corner was reapplied. Now it just looks slightly foggy/dirty, but still annoying.

    You serious? Is the screen protector for the DS that expensive that you would not just buy a new one?

    Dude you can probably find enough change in the couch for a new one. Just get it, don't tell/ask, and they'll think it was the same one they gave you. And in the future use toilet paper instead of your fingers.
