    How do you clean the aluminum on the back of the phone? I must've got something on it but using just a microfiber cloth isn't helping.

    A damp cloth should be fine.

    Lol i think a damp cloth should work too! and are baby wipes safe for this iPhone? i dont want any color or anything else of the sort coming off of it. I actually used isopropyl alcohol to clean all of my iPhones.

    Baby wipes are made for kids I highly doubt anything in them is harmful lol

    I would avoid baby wipes... buy some iKlear off of Amazon. Best stuff you can buy for cleaning your phone.

    baby wipes are the best. ive wiped all my blackberrys devices/my iphones/my ipad. i simply use the normal ones no scent. the costco brands are awesome. i always have them because i have a 2 year old and boy 4 months old twins (boy and girl). so you can imagine baby wipes are over the place in my house. i also use them to clean interior of my car etc. what i recommend is that you get the baby wipe soak it in water and then squish it to remove the water...this is how i use it to clean my iphone. no issues what so ever.

    iKear > baby wipes...

    *in my honest opinion. And iKlear is used for the whole phone. Can use it on your iPad and Mac as well.

    You may or may not choose to use baby wipes, but +1 Peligro911, they are meant to clean a baby's delicate and most private areas, they certainly will not strip paint or any other substance off any surface of the iPhone.

    I don't have baby wipes but I will go out and buy some so I can clean my mac and iPad too. Im going to buy iKlear also and see how that works out. I've never heard of anyone using hand sanitzer to clean a device until now, and yea I'm not going to try doing that.

    OMG! A damp cloth, paper towel or tissue will do. It's really not that serious to buy additional stuff. If you're that worries just get a back screen protector and you can use windex all you want. Come on guys.

    I wouldn't buy additional stuff either but I have kids so baby wipes are ALWAYS readily available .. I have used goo gone on a phone before with no issues to get sticker residue off it just depends on what is on your phone that needs removed I don't see anything really that is going to mess it up unless you dunk your phone in it or its paint thinner so harsh acidic chemical

    A baby wipe , damp cloth or any other basic cleaning wipe is not going to harm your phone

    What is so wrong with buying some iKlear people?! Seriously it costs less than 10 bucks and is the best cleaner you can get and can be used on a ton of other stuff. Best yet it leaves a really nice gloss over the glass screens which I promise baby wipes won't do... Guess I'm more OCD than others.
