    Hi guys, quick question: What do you use to clean your Desire's screen?

    I'm not just talking about getting rid of dust, but actually cleaning it. I figured it's gotta be pretty dirty with the amount of finger prints it's had on it and I'd like to give it a proper clean as my 2y/o son sometimes plays with it.

    Would something like a wet wipe/baby wipe damage the phone?

    The screen you can touch is actually the digitiser which on the outside is just glass so as long as you're careful, some sort of glass cleaner.

    Yes you would be fine using a wet wipe, I use a face wipe to clean mine. And before I use it I ring it out first to get rid of some of the moisture as not to get to much onto the phone. :D

    I just use a micro-fibre cloth and bit of a huff on the screen - seems to work a charm! :D

    Huff and wipe on trouser leg works for me.

    In reality, I do use both these methods.

    A good scrub with a Brillo pad works wonders.

    No seriously, a quick huff and a wipe with a micro fibre cloth is all I need.

    I'm old school. I use tissue paper, the sort you use for cleaning camera lenses and a bit of a huff. Works a charm.:)
