Wow, this was very helpful. It never came to me that you can use glass cleaner to clean. xD. Only one bad thing. I took off the screen protector, cleaned it, and tried to put it back on, but it looked horrible and had bubbles everywhere. This is pretty minor though, since I started with top screen, so screen protection isn't important there. This was majorly minor compared to what it fixed. The front outer body had, what I thought to be, permanent smudges and what looked like spots lacking paint. I wiped it down with the cloth, and ta daaa! They're all gone! My 3DS now looks brand new! Just for the smudge fix, I'm giving this 5*. Thanks man!

Nice little 'able. Lucky for me, I happened to have the rare micro-fiber towel! A good screen cleaner is Maxell Digital Screen Cleaner. Gets things nice and shiny! Have you ever noticed that it is impossible to stop the iPod from getting dirty?
P.S My friend code is 3351-4274-2040 and my Mii is Paulie.
