    I wipe it on my work trousers or sleeve. It really depends which is softer ;)

    Doh! Now why didnt i think of this :D

    No, but seriously, I find that after a while of using the handset it gets greasy and hard to clean just using the sleeve or other soft fabric. So... I was thinking if there was something to get of the grease and fingermarks.

    You could try the type of wipe-cloth you get with an expensive watch or a pair of glasses.

    Thats what I would use if I hadn't have lost them all.

    Yeah, those are great, I have one already... but it only does the job until a certain point, whereafter the screen really gets greasy. Hmm, maybe i should wash my hands more often (ok, i said that only to prevent stupid remarks (aka preemptive strike)). :D

    I don't really have much of an issue myself so not sure what the answer is.

    Skin is naturally greasy I'm afraid :)

    I use my shirt (cotton), and if the screen is greasy, I breathe on it first (like you'd do with glasses).

    I've noticed that the touchscreen still functions perfectly when used through cotton, as well, so I was thinking of making some gloves that have cotton tips, so that you could still use the phone. Not only would you be warm and be able to use the phone, but you'd be cleaning the screen at the same time :p

    Inside of any clothes I'm wearing - T-shirt, coat, whatever. A little spit does a great job clearing the crusty bits ;)
