micro fibre cloth

if you don't want any bubbles definitely buy a quality protector over a cheap one

apply it in the bathroom after running the shower for a few minutes. The mist should keep the dust down to a minimum.

I got a nice cleaning kit in Poundland or Pound World, not sure which one. It had the spray, cloth and some other bits and bobs in there. Very good for a quid, worth checking out.

Also screen protectors these days are better than what they used to be, they seem to go on much better than the old days. At least that is what I found with my iPhone cheapy one I purchased the other week.

I'm only speaking from applying a PS Vita screen protector but all I had to do was wipe it with the cloth that came with it. For best results though all you need to do is put a tiny drop of spray on and give it a clean and a wipe with a micro fibre cloth. You don't need to bother with the bathroom steam trick. Just be careful though to make sure there's no trapped dust when applying it.

The best thing to do is to peel of the backing tape slightly at the edge only and line it up with your screens edge and then slowly peel off and stick the rest down while looking to make sure there's no dust trapped underneath. If you mess up slightly you may still be able to quickly peel a bit of it off and then reapply it without causing any issues.

I have tried that but this time I will get a couple of cloths one for each screen as there is no point taking dust from one screen and applying to next. I will also do the shower trick at same time.

Everything I own has a screen protector except the tv but only because they don't sell em that big, microfiber cloth or something made of slik, if its greasy dampen one little section of the cloth and put a bit of soap on it, clean screen then dampen another bit of cloth and wipe the soap off before drying. Apply screen protector upside down, I.e hold the machine above your head or lay on your back and hold it infront of your face, or otherwise angle it towards the floor skmehow, pull the backing off from one side slowly, lining it up and continuing to pull the backing off as you go along paying close attention to the screen to check for dirt specs, then use a rubber hoof stick to get the bubbles out before pulling off the final backing thats normally on the front of the protector.

my machines all have cheapo generic ones on they do the job I see no difference between them and the hori ones, plus they tend to be sold in multi packs so you have spares. The last 2 I got were from a seller on amazon called techgear.

Any particular brand as a lot of reviews I have read say the cloth leaves fibers on the screen.

I mainly just use a glasses cleaning cloth I bought in boots in the 90s, its silk, I don't think they do them anymore I think its all microfiber ones now but I've always preferred that cloth, maybe buy a silk handkerchief?

Why do you want that many? I don't know much about microfiber cloths as I said I use a silk glasses cloth I bought in boots years ago. I'd opt for silk personally.
