    Keeping your Q Clean

    Noticing that my Q was a little dirty, I locked the keyboard and got to wiping it down with a tissue. Is this the best way for cleaning the Q? Are there any wipes or anything that would be safe for a more thorough cleaning than a wipe down?

    I use bausch & laumb (dont know if i spelled that right) alcohol wipes. It will clean everything up, no smears and its safe for most plastics and glass. Any crevice dirt and dust can be cleaned out with a small detail brush or paint brush, or even a small can of compressed air for cleaning sensitive electronics!

    Cleaning The Q

    I use "Misty Wipes" they are similiar to a baby wipe. I ordered them from a local chemical/cleaning supplier that we deal with at work. No alcohol. Leaves no streaks or smears. Does a righteous job. I also use the wipe to clean my window on my leather case. But wait!...there's more! when I am done cleaning the phone and the case, I use the wipe to clean the screen and the keyboard on the laptop, the server and the workstation...all with one wipe.

    Now...who rox ya?

    You could also try a can of Computer duster that has compressed air in it. Will do great for thoes hard to reach areas you cant reach with a wipe, such as inbetween buttons on the keyboard, in the mic/speaker/ear peice.

    I use just a tissue, but my Q is brand new so it's not that dirty yet. I use compressed air for every type of electronics cleaning, but as far as the screen goes i've noticed that it gets ear grime and smeary a tad easy. But I guess that's true for most smartphones, cause naturally we have oils our skin produces. Does anyone use screen protectors? Do they look cheesey?
    :gasp:

    I never used a screen protector on my old Kyocera PalmOS phone, but the screen was recessed by almost 3mm or so. Which kept it away from my ear/cheek. (Plus the keypad flipped up and covered about half the screen.)

    For the Q, I'm going to try one of those aluminum cases that have a plastic window over the screen area. And/Or I'll use the Bluetooth ear piece to answer the phone.
