*Microfiber cloth* works great, it requires only a light touch and cleans off all the fingerprints quickly and easily.

I tried eye glass cleaning cloth, liquid cleaner and tissues. The microfiber is 100 times better.

    only use distilled water with your microfiber towel and not much of that

    Shouldn't be using any liquid at all.

    Absolute best way to clean the iPad screen is dry, with the 3M Scotch Brite High Performance Cleaning Cloth. The cloth costs $3-4, but it is a woven microfiber that pulls fingerprints and dust off like nothing else. I've tried a number of different cloths, including those that came with my HD TV, etc. The 3M flat makes 'em feel like using a paper towel (NOT recommended...). And when it gets dirty? Toss it in the washing machine.

    I actually went and bought a couple spares - one for the house, one for my briefcase, and one for the office - just so I'd always have the right cloth handy. The iPad is a great device; I'd prefer it not be a great fingerprint display as well.

    I've read to be careful of using microfiber cloths... they pick up lint, dust, debris and if you're not careful you can scratch your screen trying to clean it!

    Having said that, we used a micro-fiber cloth to clean the screen before putting on a protector... but we thoroughly washed it out first-- and made sure to use different parts of it while prepping the screen.

    HazCat, seeing you are in MD, where did you find the 3M cloth? I haven't really looked but a pointer would simplify things.
