Apple’s insane $19 Polishing Cloth is the only way Apple says nano-texture-endowed Pro Display XDR owners can clean their monitors so you could be forgiven for expecting it to need special treatment. But as it turns out, it doesn’t — you just need to throw some dish soap at the thing and get right back to cleaning.
Apple has a support document that’s designed to tell people how to clean the aforementioned Pro Display XDR and nestled at the bottom of that is a section all about cleaning the cloth itself. It was spotted by 9to5Mac and it’s simplicity in itself.
Clean the polishing cloth
- Hand wash the polishing cloth with dish soap and water.
- Rinse thoroughly.
- Allow the polishing cloth to air dry for at least 24 hours.
That last part seems fairly important for obvious reasons, so please do make sure that your Polishing Cloth is nice and dry before waving it anywhere near that gorgeous Pro Display XDR. Or anything else, for that matter!
The Polishing Cloth might be the best iPhone cleaning solution around, but it’s still a hard sell. Not that you’d be able to tell that if you’d been trying to get hold of one of late. It’s only recently that delivery windows for the little cloth have begun to get a little more reasonable!
