    note: i have an invisible shield on

    Looking for an optimal screen cleaning solution. I've tried rubbing alcohol, water, eyeglass lens cleaner with microfiber cloths, TP and a cotton cloth. None seem to work great.

    no screen protector + micro fiber cloth. solvents or any liquids would NOT be a good idea.

    Yep, keep any fluids off the screen. Get a nice little microfiber cloth...works wonders.

    I use Hand saniter and a napkin, because it evaporates very quicly and cleans to a spit shine. :)

    Why no liquid, even water? I've used it a couple times.

    But I just usually breathe on it and wipe it off w/ my shirt.

    After seeing the scratch test video, I got a bit brave...No screen protector yet. I just rub it on my cotton shirts. Cleaned.

    Screen protector on the way though.

    I have no screen protector and mine cleans itself whenever I put it in my pocket. I guess it rubs against the lining and self cleans.

    NEVER use rubbing alcohol oh ANY type of screen. It will eat away the protective coating.

    To clean the screen, just use a microfiber cloth. If there is still stuff on it, dampen the cloth, but not too much. If the cloth is dripping that is WAY to much.

    With and without a screen protector, this is the most efficient solution. I just put it in my pocket, screen facing in, and by the time i pull it out to use it again it's crystal clear.

    I guess this would be the one thing that the EVO couldn't do better than an iPhone ;)

    I would hope it would be your own spit! :eek:

    I couldn't imagine how disgusting that would be to ask someone to spit on your EVO for you. YUCK :(
