    Hello. Since there is no board in the NDS board about the NDS I'm going to post this here..

    I'm wondering how you clean your NDS Lite. How do you clean the case, the screen and so on.


    I would also like to recieve tips on what to use while cleaning and etcetera.


    I gotta go take a shower now.

    @ superrob: Okay. For the screens I breathe on them then I wiped them with my shirt or something.

    Can you use Windex on the case and the screens and what kind of fabric is the best?

    I have to admit, I was actually skeptical when a friend told me to use windex, but after seeing it's reccomended by lagman I guess it's what I'll keep on using.

    No, but honestly it works, just don't go mad with the windex, it is liquid after all [​IMG]

    I think that would be fine, when I use cleaning lcd fluids I always use one squirt on the cloth [​IMG]

    Well, I got my Ph. D. in windex long time ago but yeah, one little squirt on the cloth should be enough.
    Use blue windex.

    Glasses cleaner + glasses wipe for screen, top only, for the touch screen I just use water and tissue paper.

    For the body.. I don't really clean it, I have a skin and a case over it. I don't even clean the case. But I clean the buttons after my friends use it after eating something greasy. With toothpaste. Mint...

    I clean my stylus though, with water and tissue. Love my gold stylus. [​IMG]

    You guys don't spray it on, do you? I'm one of those overly careful guys and I wouldn't spray anything in the direction of my DS...

    A towelette damped in Windex should work fine, correct?

    Well, I prefer to use a lint-free cloth, boiled (twice) and then dried in a room with a de-humidifier on full blast. Before I clean the screens, I like to wash my hands (twice) and then air dry them (tissue and towels tend to leave lint on your hands). I wipe them (twice) in the same direction using an alcohol based liquid on the cloth (with latex gloves on, of course) and then destroy the cloth (twice) to make sure it's never used again - or (twice)

    As for the case, I prefer to remove the case, destroy it and buy a new one. I tend to this twice bi-monthly.

    If I can't be bothered to do any of that, I go for the shirt sleve option.
