    Today I removed the screen protector off my ds lite and now the whole screen is full of glue residue. Any solution to remove it? I heard about using alcohol but I dont know if it can harm my ds.

    Where intellect matters
    Get a silk/cotton/other rag and wipe it off it should get it off. Unless it's really thick...

    It's actually silicone, not glue. You should be able to gently rub it off using an eyeglass cloth and some rubbing alcohol. The alcohol will not harm the screen as most commercial screen cleaners are alcohol based. Just don't let it sit there for long. Rub it off and go over it with some plain water after to get rid of the haze.

    Ps: Buy a Hori protector next time! No residue, no bubbles, doesn't scratch, etc.

    I accidentally got a little bit of that band-aid sticky stuff on my touchscreen once, it stuck nasty but I was able to get rid of ALL of it using a KFC wet-wipe and a micro-fiber cloth.

    Those KFC wet wipes, they do the freaking trick. I use them, and then I use a regular tissue to rub it off.
