Best screen cleaner . Any suggestions ?

Want to remove this ad? Please sign in or register for free today.

Ok. Screen cleaning is fast becoming the bain of my life (makes my life sound very tragic !)
Got wretched -
smeary television screen ,
smeary , static and dusty laptop screen ,
smeary , finger-printy, dusty and sticky (might be handcream linked !) tablet & phone screen.
Can anyone recommend something easy to use to clean them ?
Tried something suggested by staff at Mattys least favourite shop (begins with a P, ends in World & has C in the middle) - it was like liquid silicone and the finished result was worse than the starting point.

And another query.
How are you supposed to use touch screen mobiles outside in drizzly weather ? Mine jams at merest hint of moisture , not as smart as it likes to think it is.

.. Further screen dilemma (as if my life didn't sound tragic enough ..)

Do these anti-reflective screen covers actually work ?
My handbag contents are reminiscent of the old Vidal Sassoon Wash & Go advert " --take 2 bottles into the shower ? " .. But mine is " -- take 2 Kindles into the handbag ? "
My old kindle has a fantastic screen (and its clean !!), can see it clearly in all forms of light. The new Fire does an amazing impression of a mirror in anything other than shade.
But I use the extra facilities on the Fire so they both accompany me .
Can't really see (excuse the pun) that screen cover would cut the annoying reflective bit, but would appreciate advice.

Let that be a lesson for you, PracticalCowWorld is staffed by numpties that will sell you a turd to clean your screen if they could.

Get a pair of these to stop the smears

If the screen is glass Glasses cleaner works well, try the individual pouches.

Anti reflective screen covers, some work some do not.

Your as bad as me, I carry my nexus 7, smartphone, mifi device etc with me at all times, I have to use a manbag lol

Much worse to wipe away are the hackers that these days are ruining the internet.

I think they did !! Certainly looked like it had been smeared with something equally disgusting when I had finished

Get a pair of these to stop the smears

So not my colour .. and I don't do tweed caps (save those for the whippet chappies across the border )

If the screen is glass Glasses cleaner works well, try the individual pouches.

Think they are all plastic. Scared to death of getting them wet - especially my stupid temperamental phone

Anti reflective screen covers, some work some do not.

Will order one of the more expensive ones then

Your as bad as me, I carry my nexus 7, smartphone, mifi device etc with me at all times, I have to use a manbag lol

No idea what a mifi device is Mine is water phobic Nokia Lumia , Kindle ? , whatever the black & white ones are called (- those you can actually read books on ) , Kindle Fire (- those you can't read books on unless you sit in semi darkness with no light source anywhere near it !) And all other detritus I carry about my person on every given occasion ; I am easily spotted in a crowded room now carrying my handbag that could double as cabin size case(

We use Solution 3-60 on all our screens - it's actually a spectacle lens cleaner but it works brilliantly on iPads and smart phones. The smaller can sizes are available for retail sale and are quite good value for money. The 400ml can is designed for in-practice use and is not really intended for retail sale, but it's fantastic value and we can order those in and sell them on for 7.50. I have a stock of Seiko microfibre cloths too and am happy to include one of these with any Solution 3-60 purchase.
