Any tips for how to properly clean the rear of this tablet? I love the finish but it's terrible for smudging and prints. I want to clean it good and then get it into a new case. I have at my disposal:

Windex
99% Isopropyl Alcohol
50/50 Isopropyl Alchol mix
LCD wipes (which have the same chemical I believe)
"Screen DrX"
"Glass Cleaner" spray

I'm a bit reluctant to just try all of these as I fear anything wet will leave permanent wet looking smudges in this material.

Thanks

Simply don't clean it - when you plan to put it in a case you won't see the smudges anyway.

It's waterproof. Use washing up liquid, scrub and rinse off with water.

I wash it at the same time and in the same way I wash my hands after a dump.

Tap water + hand soap lather

Just use water and a towel... Also babywipes work nicely. It's water proof so don't be affraid.

White WOULD be nice if the front border around the screen was also white. Now it just looks cheap

Thanks I'll try the soapy water/towel. I know it's waterproof but that material seems like it would just absorb any kind of oily cleaners.
