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

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

badace (author)dragooner002009-01-26

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

schoonovermr (author)badace2009-06-21

acaz93 (author)scott!2009-07-08

Not much , but inspirational since you may have to use one more time my Instructable, specially if your greasy fingers are getting dirty the screen of your device again

scott! (author)acaz932009-07-08

Lol, it is inspirational!

dodo91 (author)2009-06-29

dudaott (author)didibemi2008-10-23

Didibemi. If you look closer, you'll see that "Reloj" is actually Spanish - it's "Relógio" in Portuguese. Best Regards Dudaott

robots199 (author)dudaott2008-11-13

Reloj is clock in spanish. Pronounced Re-Lock

lowercase (author)robots1992009-01-08

didibemi (author)lowercase2009-01-10

acaz93 (author)lowercase2009-01-08

didibemi (author)dudaott2008-10-24

I was just kidding.. heheh... but thats very interesting... hugs

baxterdog (author)2009-01-07

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.

lol @ the food in last step !

fromanny (author)2008-12-17

Hey are those Altec speakers in the background?

acaz93 (author)fromanny2008-12-17

they are actually "elements" branded speakers

timmy1234s (author)2008-12-16

gatorfan94 (author)2008-11-25

erckgillis (author)2008-01-19

Sounds stupid because it is Windex to clean Glass! Next they'll tell us to Drink water to quench a thirst ! Paper to wipe with Air to breathe

acaz93 (author)erckgillis2008-01-19

Should I remove this instructable ?

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.

mattboy9993 (author)erckgillis2008-03-07


Windex has ammonia!

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

Redgerr (author)mattboy99932008-08-14

what should u use then?

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

They do tell us to drink sprit to quench your thirst but ya, i c where ur goin w/ this

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.

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 .

cyrozap (author)acaz932008-09-30

What was your Mario comment?

acaz93 (author)cyrozap2008-09-30
Look the ending of this random (stupid ) video

cyrozap (author)acaz932008-09-30

I get it now...

acaz93 (author)cyrozap2008-09-30


acaz93 (author)cyrozap2008-09-30
Well , You can also look in youtube for "luigi is racist "

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

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?

acaz93 (author)csmiler2008-08-29

Yes , And actually better (and Safer)

poolshark162006 (author)2007-12-12

just use a cloth for eye glasses, it works GREAT
