Does anyone know of a finger print resistant screen protector for the touch pad?

I've been looking all over the internet and I've been unable to find anything that looks like it would keep my greasy ass hands from messing up my touchpad screen. Does anyone else have any ideas?

I would like to know too. I hate having to use my shirt to scrub the screen clean. lol. But I'm sure ANY screen protector is better than having none.

I've read that rainx works for what you are trying to do.

Just looked that up. I dont know if I'm comfortable with putting that stuff on my TouchPad. Even though others have said it works well.

I was about to suggest military shield, but I think I'm going to try skinomi because its half the price with decent reviews (via amazon). I have the military shield on my phone screen, and it is freaking awesome. Crystal clear, NEVER scratches so it seems, fairly resistant to fingerprints, and it has a nice, natural feel to it. Zagg on my cousins vibrant felt waaaaaay too sticky/tacky. Just not natural at all. Will let y'all know when I order/test the skinomi protector.

Skinomi is the same tacky crap as zagg.

Thumbs up
I find just getting any "Matte" screen protector works wonders. It scatters light, and doesn't seem to attract fingerprints the way those other shiny guards do. I got one on Ebay for $3. Just type in Matte screen protector touchpad for a cheap solution.

Any tips on best approach to apply these where you get no bubbles and it lines up right? I suck at doing these for phones.
