I know it sounds boring, but I was wondering where I could get a good cleaning cloth for the DS.

Im looking not for a rubbish one that puts dust on the screen or simply moves oily grease marks from one side of the ds shell to another. But am looking the sort that absorb greasy fingerprints.

The Sony Ericsson T610 body cleaning cloth is the perfect example. One wipe, and all grease marks are gone.
It does not merely smudge the greasemarks away, it gets rid of them. You also notice the greasiness is gone because the phone/ds lite is easier to grip afterwards.
You can tell it is different from other cleaning cloths, since it has a special feel to it.

This thing should have come with some sort of cloth.

I use monitor screen wipes.

They're small packaged (non-reuseable) wipes with, what I assume is a trace of some alcohol solution, that cleans the DS up perfectly -- until you next touch it...

I bought an iSaver microfiber cleaning cloth for my Powerbook. It's also very handy for cleaning the DS Lite and its screens.

I don't know if it's available outside Europe, but you should find something similar anywhere in the world.

i just use eyeglass cleaning cloths

Same here. You can get disposable ones, but I like the reusable ones you can find in nicer sunglasses stores. I usually keep two around, one for the screens and one for the DSL body.

The ones Nintendo has in those new little Mario character case/stylus/shami packs aren't nearly as good.

Yes, I think we have a winner.
I've just stolen my sisters eyeglass cleaning from from her glasses case.
The material is the SAME as that of the T610 screenwipe but larger.
So Im going to be keeping it ;D.

Those cleaning cloths you get with the neverending stream of ds accessory packs are not as good, and feel like normal cuts of cloth, like you would get on a shirt.
