    OK, what does everyone use to clean their DS screens?

    I've just been using a tissue - which is no longer cleaning some of the gunk off.

    Anyone know any safe sprays to use?

    I use windex and one of those clothes to clean glasses, works like a charm.

    I just use a microfiber cloth for glasses for fingerprints and dust with no spray and it take everything off no problem. Windex leaves a thin waxy film on things but that might actually help protect the screen? I've used windex a couple times with no problems, so if you have gunk on it then that will probably take it off.

    You're absolutely right, windex is for extreme things only, like, once in a while my DS will have a little scar of dust [​IMG] that's when I use windex.

    cool, I'll give it a whirl, it has some crusty dust build up.

    awesome.

    Very soft cloth and water. Customer service told me that. No fancy chemicals. Just good old water as the solvent.

    It even tells you to do that in the booklet you get with the nds lite.

    I wash it with a microfiber cloth and water and it works pretty fine.

    Just use a microfiber cloth. You shouldn't have deep stains or grit on your screen anyway [​IMG]

    Sandpaper with windex works like a charm.

    I use a big 3M microfiber cloth and Endust for Electronics.

    I used to find this stuff at the mega-marts but lately (after my kids emptied two cans on their computer monitor in one cleaning session) I've only found it at Fry's.

    The stuff is awesome. I use it on almost everything. "oil-free, wax-free, ammonia-free." It cuts through all sorts of mung, finger oil, etc...

    Yup Microfiber is the thing you need. I avoid any liquids on my screens. Just a bit of fresh breath should do it [​IMG]

    I agree with striderx, the endust stuff works great. I use that and a cleaning cloth that I bought at Gamestop, or endust and a microfiber sock works nicely. NEW Sock, still soft, microfiber only! =)
