If there’s a universal truth we can say about the screens and surfaces on our modern devices, it’s that they sure do get a lot of fingerprints on them. Unfortunately, the days of whipping out the Windex and paper towels are long behind us. If we use anything but microfiber cloths and special cleaning solutions, we can pretty much kiss the pristine surfaces of our TVs, smartphones, tablets, videogame consoles, laptops, eyeglasses, and more goodbye. Fortunately, the Screen Joy Computer Screen Cleaner and Microfiber Cloth combo is inexpensive (only $10.00 on Amazon right now) and does a fantastic job of safely cleaning just about any of our beautifully designed, but surprisingly fragile, modern technology.
The Screen Joy spray bottle is a generous 6.8oz (200ML), which should be good for hundreds of sprays on its equally generous 10x10in (25x25cm) washable microfiber cloth. As you would expect – and should demand – this combination is anti-static, non-smudging, and cloud-free. In my testing, it really did a great job cleaning all kinds of surfaces, including my Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Microsoft Surface Pro 3, Microsoft Xbox One, and Panasonic plasma TV. I’m confident it would do an equally great job on all of the other devices scattered throughout our home.
As for usage, it’s important to remember some simple rules to keep your devices safe when cleaning. Always spray the microfiber cloth and not the surface you want to clean. Use the wet side of the microfiber cloth to clean the surface, then flip to the side you didn’t spray for a final polish. Simple, yet it’s amazing how few people bother doing it the right way despite the potential for some pretty disastrous results. So for your wallet’s sake, clean your device’s the right way and do it with something like this excellent offering from Screen Joy.
