Cleaning your drawing tablet?

Just wondering what you guys/gals use to clean your drawing tablets?

Aside from water and a damp cloth, do you use cleaning solutions for food smears, and other hard to remove substances? I have a Wacom intuos and am planning to buy a solution (for a 'just in case scenario' where I get food or something on it) for it- just not sure what to get and what's safe for the tablet.

There's a limited selection of PC cleaners where I live; couldn't find the likes of Belkin, Endust or even iKlear in nearby stores :(

But I came upon a store that sells Antec Cleaning Solution

Just wondering if anyone here has tried it and if it's ok to use? It seems to have good reviews and the label says that it's alcohol and ammonia free...

I use a damp cloth. Seems to clean it just fine. I do how ever use a smudge guard on my hand so that may help keep it cleaner.

A two fingered glove I bought from SmudgeGuard.com [link]

Its great for kkeping your tablet from getting to grimmy and its also good for traditional pencil. Keeps your hand clean.

I use a kitchen wipe, but I use a Wacom Bamboo Touch since I'm not privileged enough to get anything better... or bigger. I dunno, you can just use a computer screen wipe. Cheap enough to get. No need for a brand name really for as long as it does the job. :shrug: I don't think you should use your tablet to eat off though. It's not very good for it. *joke*

Yup, im not particular about brand names, though i do trust certain brands for the reliabiliy of their products...thats why i choose wacom everytime over other companies (wacom bamboo is very good, too), i dont eat off the tablet lol! sometimes i have food beside it though, it gets small drops in it by accident...nothing too bad though. :) ty for your input

Oh yeah, I chose Wacom overall, but when if comes to cleaning products, I just find what is cheap and use it. =]

I'm only joking with you. I don't have a kitchen table so I just use my coffee table to eat at my laptop is there as well. So it does get attacked by gravy and right now, highlighter ink. D=

Yeah, I guess there's no point spending so much if you can find cleaner that's affordable yet works :D I have a cloth which I cover my tablet with when I have drinks, etc. nearby on the table.

Thanks :) I use a bit of water and microfibre cloth, actually but need something for food...i purchased the antec but so far havent tried it.

Water is the safest solution, though!
