    Just curious how you guys get rid of fingerprints and dust?

    I haven't done anything yet but I have these pre-dampened alcohol wipes that are made for cleaning glasses and computer screens. Anyone else clean their electronics with something like that?

    Just use microfiber cloths. You can slightly dampen a corner of the cloth with some distilled water to wipe the screen with and then dry the screen with another part of the cloth

    I use Philips Screen Cleaning Gel for Plasma and LCD with a micro fiber cloth.

    +1 on microfiber clothes. I pretty much use those for all electonics.

    +another on the microfiber. I just use a clean one (with no chemicals or liquids of any kind), and it takes the finger prints right off.

    Really no liquids? Do you breathe heavily on your device and then rub? I think I need to get a microfiber cloth

    On cell phones, my G-Tablet, laptops, etc., I've always just taken a soft cloth, put a few drops of water on the cloth and rubbed wit the damp side and dried it. Looks like new when I'm done.

    All you need is too wipe .. Well unless you are using your Xoom and eating fried chicken then you might need a cleaner

    Shirt works well. Or hand. Either or.

    I let my girlfriend breath on it like Marilyn Monroe then I use a large 12 x 12 microfiber cloth.

    Picked up a microfiber cloth and the fingerprints come right off no breathing at all, very convenient.

    My shirt, or I just put up with the finger prints as it doesn't take long for the Xoom to be covered again!!

    I also picked up a stylus pen off E-bay that has a soft rubber end for $10.00 better than using your fingers.

    @tjreishus, that was a great call. Just got the Zeiss packets from Amazon and they are fantastic. One cloth does both the Xoom and the DX. Kudos.

    I would be very careful about long term exposure to Alcohol or Ammonia. It may cloud the screen. It can also cause drying and brittleness.

    Thanks for the heads up. I actually use it to clean the back of the Xoom. Fingerprints wipe right off the glass with the micro fiber, but the back is a different story.
