A second convenient method is any type of common household cleaner. Lysol disinfectant spray is a perfect example. Find a clean, preferably lint-free cloth, and spray the cloth first not the iPad or iPhone. Wipe down your entire device with the dampened cloth. Again be careful around ports and openings to not pool up the liquid into these areas. This method is about as simple as it gets.
