    What's the best way to clean the 3DS? I took mine to school today to show a couple of people, but as expected, suddenly everyone wanted a go. It was no longer my DS, it was public property. Needless to say, it has more fingerprints on it than a crime scene. What's the best way to get these off?

    I would assume a microfibre cloth would be the way to go, same as you'd use for glasses or an HDTV.

    I've had this strange issue with dust on my screen yesterday. There was NO WAY to get it off than a slightly wet microfibre cloth so, I think there's nothing you could do wrong with it. [​IMG]

    Beeen using the one from my TV too.

    Washing machine.

    But seriously, a microfibre cleaning cloth will work wonders. I have one with an angel wing design on which has cleaned my DS Lite, PSP and now my 3DS over the years. A truly incredible piece of kit. I have a little brush to clean gunk out from under analogue sticks and between hinges as well.

    Ooo, letting grimey handed school kids at it?! :-O..bad idea! haha.
    A lint free cloth is the best bet, you can get them in Nintendo accessory packs or screen cover packs [​IMG]
