    So my BB is very precious to me. I always like to keep it in tip-top shape and lookin slick. One thing that I've been having an issue with is getting hand oils on my phone. Now I always try and wash my hands before touching it, but sometimes I can't. It creates a sort of almost greasy feeling on my phone and I'm wondering how many of you have run into this and how have you dealt? What did you use to clean it? I can't take any risks here, I will only use something safe. Any ideas, thoughts, insights?

    Windex works well for the screen. But, my son has some kind of little cloth that came with his Nintendo DS that works perfectly! Takes off all oil, and polishes too.

    All you can do is wipe it off when you have time if you use your phone then it will get oil on it.

    Install a BSE and you will be virtually worry free

    And a good microfiber cloth can't hurt.

    I use the cloth that came with my glasses it's soft and doesn't scratch the screen.

    Windex huh? Can anyone else verify that?

    Hmmm I haven't seen this BSE before, but it looks promising. Do you use one yourself? And I did buy two microfiber cloths from Verizon, but it seems that they don't work as well after you use them a few times because the oils get transfered to it and then you're just pushing the oils around on the BB.

    The screen will usually not scratch when wiped off with a normal cloth, etc. Windex does not harm the screen... I have heard of many people using it.

    To be honest, I have no skin, screen protector, etc. I use my shirt to wipe off occasionally...

    On both the Pearl and the Curve. Also on my Sansa MP3 player.
    I will NEVER own a BB and not have one on it.

    Well sounds like good advice from an experienced CB BB veteran.

    A little spray of lysol on a lint free cloth works wonders.

    Seriously, it is the one of the best investment you can make.
    And as an added bonus, the thing is "self healing". Get a scratch
    on it and in a day or two it will have vanished.

    I've seen those before, but it always freaks me out that I have to wet it AND use a drop of dish soap in the solution to apply the skin directly to my electronic device.

    Do you have to wet it? Can you apply it dry? What's the reasoning behind wetting it before applying it? Ease of installation and diminished chances of fingerprints, dust, etc?

    That scares me.

    Yes you have to wet it in a solution of soapy water.
    You don't need to saturate it, and it makes applying
    it easier. I don't think you can apply it dry, never tried.

    It really is quite easy to put on. And a tip, hit it with a
    hair dryer set on low will set it almost immediately

    Do you think you could take a couple pictures from the front and back and different angles... also one with the screen lit up so I can see if it makes the screen any darker or helps with glare or even makes glare worse? It would be greatly appreciated!

    Alright there's no rush. I've been looking at invisibleSHIELD and I think that might even be a better choice than BSE. What is your opinion on invisibleSHIELD? I really like how it's military strength and covers the entire surface of the phone.
