Weird question - disinfecting ipad? Clorox wipe?
So I just picked up an iPad2 32gb wifi. Last one in my state, it seemed. Anyway...
I use a clorox wipe on my blackberry torch to disinfect it and it's totally fine, will this be OK on the ipad as well? I will be taking my iPad the same places I take my phone which is why I would like to disinfect it. (School, work, venues, tours, etc. It gets NASTY)
I'm not a germ phobe or anything, but when you really think about it... I don't wanna be touching door handles, computers, instruments, you name it... by thousands of other people, and then sit down and use my iPad or Torch while eating something or whatever and be touching food + nasty stuff from the device from being out in public.
Anyone have any insight on this? I know it's a weird question but I don't want to take a clorox wipe to my new $600+ iPad and have it ruined.
The wetness has never damaged my Torch, btw. I have a system where I wipe the clorox and IMMEDIATELY dry it before the liquid can even move. Keeps things clean and happy

I’m not saying it won’t work, but Clorox sounds a little harsh on the iPad. Let us know if it works or doesn’t work. That’s a good question though. I normally just use a microfiber cloth to clean mine off, but I know that doesn’t kill germs.

Honesty I would not use any type of remotely harsh chemical. I use a dab of water and a good quality microfiber cloth. A good microfiber cloth is amazing at cleaning grime,gunk, and germs from a glass screen.
The good microfiber cloths are the ones that feel slightly prickly when you run a finger across them.

Oh, geeze guys. Please tell me you're kidding... You should never use any kind of cleaner solution or solvent on an iPad or iPhone 4. It will eat away at the oliophoic coating on the screen.
You shouldn't use anything other than a soft microfiber cloth and a few drops of water to clean the screen. You could probably get away with cleaning the back with some of that iKlear stuff. I use HDTV screen cleaner on the back of my iPad 2.
Hope this helps.
