I use one of these:

well it looks like the one I use. I bought it from my school and it works pretty well. Cool thing is they stick to the back of your phone, case anything. You can even wash it when it is dirty and losing its sticky and it becomes brand new. Now that I see how much of a shady website and how cheap my school got them for I'm slightly mad I paid 2 dollars for it.....

I use monster screen cleaner, same thing I use for my moniter. Comes with a microfibre cloth and works fine. I'm sure there's lots of things you can use to clean it.. anything that cleans a moniter will clean a screen.

Donít use any type of chemicals to clean your iPhone. I use to soak a piece of scratch resistant cloth in water and then clean the screen. Finally wipe smoothly until the screen gets dried. It does not harm your phone.

I use Windex wipes for electronics. They sell at Walmart and are great to clean screens. They come with lots of wipes, so I put one in a baggie and one sheet lasts about a week. They are about five bucks for 25 wet sheets and you can cut them up for more uses. Also walmart had a cheaper brand bit I haven't tried them.

But try these, they work much better than water and a tshirt and all fingerprints are gone presto!

I actually bought some touch screen wipes in a chemist a couple of weeks ago more out of curiosity than anything else. Their sort of like baby wipes for your phone and seem to work well although I generally just use a micro fibre cloth.

I realise I'm late to the party, but... you know if you're the only person using your phone then it'd already be on your fingers, right? Ditch the antibacterial wipes and make sure you wash your hands properly after using the bathroom.

Also, interesting fact: microscopic amounts of fecal matter aren't a great health risk to anybody. There's even a certain percentage legally allowed in food products before it'll be recalled.

Anyone worried about fecal matter on their Iphone better keep their toothbrush stored in a haz-mat bag. (one of my favorite moments on Myth Busters was when they tested bathrooms to find out where the best spot to store toothbrushes was and they ended up determining that there was no way to avoid fecal matter - even in the kitchen. The highlight was the guy with the stache exclaiming in frustration "theres poo EVERYWHERE!") Seriously, people worry way too much about germs. We need to be exposed to a certain amount of dirt in order to build up resistance to bacteria.

I use the breath/cotton T-shirt combo for cleaning my iphone screen. Works just fine...

I've used a variety of different things to clean my device screens. Some of the best are:
-microfiber cloths
-soft t-shirts
-eyeglass tissues

paired with (a little bit of):
-eyeglass cleaner
-display cleaner

The microfiber cloths and t-shirts work fine by themselves if there's just fingerprints on the screen.
