Exactly my thought, I think you meant LCD, since the digitizer does have a glass protection on it already, but since yes it's the LCD itself behind the digitizer, I don't know if I actually would have put liquid on the LCD itself, maybe just applied a little liberally to the LCD with the microfiber cloth than again I might have. I gotta share something strange that happened yesterday that applies to this. Our 4 year old has always brought us things we either misplaced or later realized we needed, one time he brought my wife her B12 vitamins, she couldn't find them for days, realizing she hadn't been taking them, he's special like that, anyway yesterday, I put the LCD cleaning kit on the front table together with the other items I gathered to get the job done, not thinking much about it, not less than an hour or so later, I find him in his room with the kit package opened and the entire bottle of cleaner emptied on his carpet,I was relieved he didn't try to swallow it, but I was mad, but then again he has been opening up packages lately and he's 4 with special needs I.E. autistic so were told,so that's kind of an accomplishment for him, anyhow, after I chastised him I got the microfiber and soaked up the liquid as best as I could and put the cloth in the fridge hoping it would retain the moisture. So it occurs to me he kinda did me a favor since I might have been tempted to spray the LCD with the liquid like I do with my monitors sometimes. So maybe he did this to save my butt rather than act up and irritate me, so I need to check the cloth, ok so just as I figured the cloth is nice and moist and not wet, I figure that should be ok to use now, what do you think? If not I gotta wait till a I get LensPen like in this video
which I would strongly suggest viewing,before making any attempt to replace a digitizer or LCD on an Ipad 2. Update so I decided to go for it and use the cloth, and it worked quite well few streaks but no issue, glad to report the 3rd time was a charm, the operation went quite smoothly thanks to the video I mentioned and had it replaced in le I used a low setting heat gun as instructed in the video to seal the adhesive, I may have gotten too close to the power/data port and home button, because after 4 hours of waiting for the adhesive to bond I started to notice first that the Home button didn't respond, I tried to reset settings no luck, and then I found when I plugged it in it won't charge unless pressure is put on the screen near the port like in this video
but much worse, the home button does respond when pressure is applied, is it possible the heat unseated the board or worse yet bent it somehow with the heat? Am I pretty much screwed and now need a new logic board or do I just need to reopen, seat the board correctly and close up with new adhesive? I forgot to say everything else works fine. Upon further inspection it did not seal properly I can see visually that it appears the area of the button and connector is not in alignment. The bezel is still good so I can reuse, after applying pressure again it is now charging, obviously this is long out of warranty so I can't get a replacement, I'm using an assist ap Home button at the moment, it can limp along like this but would be better if it worked the way is supposed to. Please tell me what you think is wrong than an hour and it works great,case closed. What a relief! Update, I posted too soon!

Coffee filters work wonders just saying. They are inexpensive, lint free and you get a ton of them...
