    Hey gang, [​IMG]

    I admit it; I have OCD & I need to keep my black DS clean. It drives me NUTS [​IMG] to have finger prints all over the thing. It's near impossible to keep clean...but now I have help!

    One of my buddies was making fun of my neat habits & saw me cleaning the DS with expensive non static wipes for electronics. He suggested something better & CHEAPER! [​IMG] He gave me a little package (that looks like a condom package) that has a "Lens Cleaning Wipe" for glasses in it. It works great!

    I have been using them for a few weeks now I have seen no negative effects:blink:. They dry quickly, do not scratch the screens & do NOT leave any residue behind [​IMG] . I use them on the screens & all over the glossy outside. It also works fine in the action areas like with the buttons & D-Pad. Hey, if they are gentle enough for lenses in your glasses then they should be OK for the DS & the DS screens.

    They can be found in Wal-Mart [​IMG] (I'm sure other stores have them) in the contact lens [​IMG] /pharmacy area. The ones I use are by a company called "nice'nCLEAN" & I picked up a box of 30 for around $2 & change. They are small enough to stick 1 or 2 of them in your DS carrying case so you will always have one handy when needed! [​IMG]

    I hope this info is useful for all of you other OCD types like me out there! [​IMG]

    I clean my touch screen with Q-tip. One side a little wet (water), the other side dry. Works well and gets in corners better.

    I made a pair of trousers by stitching together dozens of camera lens cleaning cloths. Now when my DS gets dirty I just rub it on my crotch. A cheap solution which satisfies my OCD and my nymphomania.
