Default how to clean your $19 Apple cleaning cloth

Shockingly, the process doesn’t involve using another polishing cloth

https://www.theverge.com/tldr/2022/1...d-also-sarcasm

Here’s the scenario: you managed to get your hands on Apple’s hottest product, its $19 polishing cloth meant for cleaning nano-texture screens and other Apple devices. But oh no! Instead of hanging it up with the rest of your priceless artifacts, you accidentally used it to actually clean something, and now it’s dirty. Thankfully, Apple has bestowed us with a guide on how to make our cloth good as new, and 9to5Mac has brought those instructions to our attention.

Are you ready? Here’s how Apple’s “How to clean the nano-texture glass on your Apple display” support article describes the process:

1. Hand wash the polishing cloth with dish soap and water.

2. Rinse thoroughly.

3. Allow the polishing cloth to air dry for at least 24 hours.

The instructions have been on Apple’s website for at least a few months, according to the WayBack Machine, but despite a handful of reviews or articles mentioning them, I hadn’t come across them. That’s really a shame — other people who also hadn’t known about the instructions might’ve been throwing away their priceless polishers all because of a little grime, wasting $20 simply because the cleaning instructions are buried on a support page instead of being included on a tag, or embossed on the cloth itself. (I would also settle for prime placement on the Apple home page, where all people of the cloth spend their day.)

I'll wait until Harbor Freight sells a pack of 3 for $1.99 (includes a free flashlight).

Ballers use these to clean up after rubbing one out.

I laugh at the crAPPLE cult. I buy a two year old android phone for $200 and it has more features etc. than crAPPLES latest and greatest $1000+ phone. Now they are marketing a cleaning cloth for $20 bucks.
One thing I'll say crAPPLE knows their customers and know those idiots will overpay for anything with the crAPPLE logo on it.

What two year old android for $200 are you recommending? I tried an iPhone recently. Had to return it. Total junk, hard to use. But I need to replace my "current" Samsung Note 4.

I've been super happy with my S10, had for a few years. I think you can get at least S9 for under $200.

I wait long enough between phones so that they are virtually free. iPhone 13 Pro is no upfront, and only $10 per month extra for switching to a 5G plan.

Thank you both. I'll check those out.

I wait a long time too. My current Note 4 came out in 2014. I probably acquired it cheaply circa 2017. I wouldn't bother replacing it age-wise but it's been acting a little quirky lately so I'd like to get ahead of the failure curve.
