A clean tablet is a happy tablet
Perhaps one downside to today's influx of touchscreen technology is dealing with all the fingerprints and other smudges that can cover devices. Smartphones and tablet computers are designed to be touched, so keeping them clean is an essential part of owning them.
Fortunately, the task is not a difficult one, and it doesn't require any special glass-cleaning spray, ammonia or even water in most cases. It merely takes some diligence and a microfiber cloth, which is fairly inexpensive and specially designed to clean sensitive surfaces, like glass and LCD screens.
The best way to clean a tablet or a smartphone is to turn the device off. This makes it easier to see the fingerprints and other blemishes or particles on the screen. Like waxing a car, wiping the screen in a small circular motion will get the best shine.
Unless the build-up is extra thick or needs to be chipped at a bit, no moisture is necessary, and even if it is, it should be used sparingly.
Mobile device users who want to take extra care of their devices may consider purchasing a tablet or smartphone with a Corning® Gorilla® Glass display. This alkali-aluminosilicate glass is engineered to resist scratching and other damage and can all but ensure one's device is able to stand the test of time.
