Introduction: Make Your IPod Touch's Screen Look As NEW!!

This May Sound stupid , but this is a secret of apple stores and Best buy stores ,That actually Works!

And Christmas is Coming The Lucky People That Have One (or Those That Are GOing TO Receive One ) Know how to properly clean it's screen.

Remember that iPhone And iPod Touch's Screen Are Made of a Glass-like material , so , the solution for cleaning those bad-looking grease spots and fingerprints is (drums please ... xp)

Use glass cleaner!!

simple as that!!

This technique is purely optional , it does need to be done , but once every two or three weeks or maybe months , after all your devices are yours

BONUS: The Pictures Have SUPER_SIZED pictures feel free to view them zoomed or Full-screen

Step 1: Finda Stuff

Gather Your Materials :
Some Drops of your favorite glass cleaner (remeber Use the ammonia free variety , since amonia can ruin the protective coating of Pda's And regular iPods
NEVER USE A CLEANER WITH AMMONIA (read Above Why)

Gather your tools
The cloth included with your iPod touch (iPhone?)
A Cotton cloth , You may recycle something
OPTIONAL:if Your device uses a case you may want to use a screwdriver or your nails to remove it

Step 2: OPTIONAL Remove IPod Touch/iPhone's Cover

I use to protect my Touch with a hard plastic case , which really protects it of dust and scratches , anyway some people like to have they're iP(hone)ods "Naked" xp

Step 3: Remove Dust Using ICloth

Wipe The Screen Using The iCloth , Just remove big dust particles .

(as usual it will not clean it nicely , that's the reason of this how-to)

Step 4: The Magic ..

Add A Few drops of window cleaner to the screen , clean the screen with circular motion ,and the from side to side ( let's do the mario all togehther now!!1 XD , just kidding), Now is as shiny as New , Cool Isn't it ?

Step 5: OPTIONAL Clean Case

In order to keep the iPod clean for a decent amount of time , clean the cover too (if you use one )
using the same method , clean both inner and outer Parts

Step 6: Put Again the Case , Enjoy Our Hard Job , Thanks a Lot

Replace The Top Part Of Case , And Enjoy Your Hard Job , Show To your friends Your (jailbroken?) iPod touch .

Thanks For Reading! Hope This Was Useful!

Oh , And reward yourself with a Burrito , Tasty!

In fear that I might get a bit of the solution in the iPod, I'd spray the cloth then wipe down the iPod Touch. Cheers, badace

Place it in a large ZipLoc bag full of rice for 24 hrs. That should pull out the moisture in the ipod. Good Luck.

Try 50-50 drugstore isopropyl alcohol and clean, filtered (and I mean filtered) water and a microfiber cloth. Much easier. Done, and OK for your LCD screens too.

author
acaz93 (author)erckgillis2008-01-19

Should I remove this instructable ?

author
cormac3050 (author)acaz932008-11-17

No, don't remove it, just change it to say to use the stuff for cleaning glasses instead of actual glass cleaner.Also, good instructable.

author
mattboy9993 (author)erckgillis2008-03-07

DO NOT USE WINDEX!!!!

Windex has ammonia!

Ammonia + Electronics' displays = No more protective coating and glass "corrosion"

author
Redgerr (author)mattboy99932008-08-14

what should u use then?

author
w0bzzy (author)mattboy99932008-03-10

It's not the ammonia, but you've got it right. Most cleaners make it look hella nice, but it takes away the special gloss on the touch screen. Keep it up and you'll end up w/ lowered touch sensitivity.

seena40 (author)erckgillis2008-04-21

I wonder if I was the only one that understood your Mario comment. Otherwise, a very simple yet true instructable, unless your iPod is scratched. If it's scratched I'd suggest using that liquid that comes with the DiscDoctor, that fills in the scratches.

author
acaz93 (author)Erik Lindemann2007-12-12

O_o i also understood the Mario comment XD True , Using DiscDoctor Fluid? For cleaning the back is optimal , and it also works with mirrors And Sunglasses xp .

humongo_spork (author)2008-06-03

you jailbroke it! I did that once being a young hacker, but I threw in the towel on that. Not that I couldn't do it, but it messed up my Ipod big time. too much work also

author
cyrozap (author)humongo_spork2008-09-30

I jailbroke my iPod touch, and it was pretty easy. used quickpwn to jailbreak 2.1. Did not take me long. I can't backup through iTunes 8, but I don't really care. i can just SFTP to it and copy the files to my PC's 500GB HDD.

csmiler (author)2008-08-28

What about the cleaning spray they give you when you buy glasses,would that work?

author
acaz93 (author)csmiler2008-08-29

Yes , And actually better (and Safer)
