Re: Cleaning the glass

I have a screen protector on the glass. To clean it, I use an alcohol pad -70% alcohol and then polish with clean cloth. These are the ones that nurses use to swab your skin before giving you an injection. Just the right size and alcohol strength. If you use 99% alcohol, it leaves streaks on the protector and you have to change it sooner.

Re: Cleaning the glass

I don't use a screen protector (the glass surface really doesn't need it, but it is a preference for some).


I use any common eyeglass cleaner wipes and/or the lint free cloth wipes.

Re: Cleaning the glass

Glass is hard and low friction. Plastic soft and high friction. Screen protectors therefore are an unnecessary downgrade.


Use spec cleaner, tapehead cleaner,  soapy water, anything like that on a soft cloth, but don't let it dribble down the speaker holes!
