Cleaning Nook Color Screen

What is the best way to clean the screen on the Nook Color?

I use the micro fiber cloth that came with my glare sheets. I know it's got gorilla glass, so it would take a lot to scratch it, but I would be very careful with wet stuff. Maybe just a drop of water on a soft cloth.

I use a microfiber glasses-cleaning cloth: I do the steam-it-with-your-breath thing, which is really easy right now, it's so cold. Then quickly wipe the area before the steam evaporates. This cleans it perfectly!

I use the cloth I got with my anti glare, and up until now for some reason I thought it came with my Nook Color, lol.

I use the cleaning packets from LensCrafters that I bought for my eye glasses. Works perfectly, and I'm sure it's not going to hurt the gorilla glass. Loving my NookColor!

Re: Cleaning Nook Color Screen

I actually use a soft cloth with a small spritz of Windex on it.  I am still waiting for my protective screen cover to come in the mail (just got my Nook Color a few days ago), so it's been working great in the interim.  Since it has the Gorilla Glass, it doesn't seem to damage it.  Gives it nice shine and no fingerprints!!  As I said though, I only put a small spray on the cloth, wipe it down once or twice, and then wipe it with a dry piece of the cloth until all the marks are gone.

Re: Cleaning Nook Color Screen

I always put a screen protector on my devices.  That way I can clean it with whatever I want and not worry about scratching the actual glass.  Since the NC is so new, it's still kind of hard to find good quality screen protectors.  I purchased on for the Apple iPad made by Splash and cut it down to size.  Took two tries :smileysurprised: but the quality is good.  I can't tell I have a screen protector on.  There's no diminished clarity.  Some people worry that there might be increased glare with screen protectors, but I can't speak to that because I added the protector to my Nook right out of the box.

Re: Cleaning Nook Color Screen

I use my finger - I wipe it back and forth and the prints are gone. No mess no fuss!

Re: Cleaning Nook Color Screen

Ummm...you should NEVER use Windex on ANY type of electronic device.  The chemicals in Windex can be very harmful.

Re: Cleaning Nook Color Screen

Never use anything ammonia based on your screen, it will damage the finish. In addition, I strongly suggest that any cleaner you do use be applied to the cloth rather than directly to the screen

Re: Cleaning Nook Color Screen

I heard you shouldnt use Windex because the alcohol can mess up the screen. What I use is a microfiber cloth and my breath. Works great.
