Touchscreen Kleen Review

Posted by Andrew at 4:33 PM on May 8, 2012

Fingerprints are the bane of modern life. You’ve got your beautiful new tablet, you show it to your friends and before you can say, “oleic acid”, there’s a horde of greasy smudges all over the screen. Aaargh!!!

Here at Geek News Central we’ve seen several solutions to this problem, from carbon-based wipes to fashion self-cling pads. Touchscreen Kleen adds to the portfolio: it’s a special-formulated spray combined with a microfibre cloth.

TouchscreenKleen Package

It’s pretty simply to use….turn off the screen, squirt some cleaning solution onto the microfibre cloth and polish the screen with the cloth. Job done.
And it really is that easy. I cleaned tablets, smartphones, LCD monitors and they all came up looking like new, completely smudge free. Very impressed.

The microfibre cloth is washable so if you have to clean a really dirty monitor screen, the grubby cloth can be washed before the next use.

Touchscreen Kleen is available in two sizes, 15 ml and 50 ml, currently on special offer at £3.99 and £5.99 respectively in the online store.

Toddy Smart Cloth

Toddy Gear LogoSince the finger became the input device of choice, I’ve spent more time polishing my smartphone and tablet than I care to admit. I usually use whatever is handy but I know that this isn’t always a good idea – cotton can be more abrasive than you think and there’s nothing worse than a grain of sand caught in the weave. Toddy Gear have the solution to this problem with microfibre smart-cloths designed to keep your gadgets smudge free without liquids and in dozens of brilliant patterns. And they are brilliant patterns.

Toddy Cloths

They’re also reasonably priced with most single cloths at $10 and there’s currently a “3-for-2″ offer on in the on-line store. Toddy Cloths available from Best Buy and Target retail stores. Regrettably, it doesn’t look like the Toddy Cloth is currently available in the UK, otherwise I’d be popping out to get one.

Our Todd will be chatting with their Todd at next month’s CES in Las Vegas. Watch this space.

Toddy Smart ClothSo you decided to get an iPad or perhaps a Kindle Fire, a smartphone or a tablet running Android for someone’s Christmas present or perhaps for yourself. What do all these devices have in common, a glass screen you touch. Which means after using them for about 5 minutes they are covered by finger prints. Which means you need to find a cloth to wipe them with. You don’t want to use just any cloth, even the softest cotton cloth can leave microscopic scratches. You need a microfiber cloth. You can pick up an generic one at almost anywhere, but why not get one that has style. Why not get a Toddy Smart Cloth.

The Toddy Smart Cloth has two distinct sides, one side is made of microfiber for cleaning and the other side is silk for buffing and polishing. The silk side comes in 44 prints and vibrant colors. The cloth is covered by Aegis Microbe an antimicrobial coating that prevents the spread of germs. It absorbs oils, dust and smudges, no spray needed. It is washable in cold water and tumble dry. It will be something that you will be proud to carry for years to come.

The great news that came out this week is that you can now get Toddy cloths at your local Best Buy,  Target along with Amazon and the Toddy Gear Website.  If you want to get one that is personalized with your brand, you still have to go to the Toddy Gear site. Toddy Cloths are 5×7 for $9.99 and 9×9 for $14.99. Toddy Smart Cloths are great stocking stuffers for Christmas or just pick up some for yourself.
