* Finally be rid of fingerprints and smudges
* Using regular wipes or tissues could damage your screen
* Make sure you choose screen-specific products
Phones, laptops and tablets don’t stay clean after days of hard use and transportation. Dust, dirt, and worst of all, greasy fingerprints are unavoidable. Luckily, dozens of products have been created to solve the problem. The most effective option is to use cleaning cloths and screen-specific cleaning solutions, or pre-moistened screen cleaner wipes. Here are the 8 best on the market.
1. Live Happy Mop Top Screen Cleaner
This happy little stylus doubles as a microfiber screen mop, and fits seamlessly into your pen and pencil pocket. It’s ideal for small smudges and prints, but won’t work great for bigger cleaning jobs, too.
2. Belkin Screen Cleaning Kit – BEST VALUE
Belkin’s screen cleaning kit comes with a small bottle of alcohol-free and residue-free cleaning solution and a large microfiber cloth. At under $10, this is the best deal for a cloth and solution cleaning kit.
3. MagicFiber Microfiber Cleaning Cloths – BEST REVIEWED
If you just want a microfiber cloth, these ones by MagicFiber are a great option. With over 9,000 positive reviews on Amazon, they effectively remove dust, fingerprints, oil, and germs without any solution, and can be washed and reused.
4. EcoMoist Natural Screen Cleaner
EcoMoist’s screen cleaner takes the all-natural route, offering a cleaner that’s biodegradable and alcohol-free. It comes with a thick microfiber cloth, and the spray bottle is pocket sized at 50ml.
5. Stixx Screen Cleaning Kit
Stixx’s screen cleaning kit is another great choice if your device needs a serious cleaning. Like the Belkin, it comes with a large microfiber cloth that prevents scratching or streaking.
6. Mosslian Pre-Moistened Screen Cleaning Wipes
Another pre-moistened choice is the Mosslian screen cleaning wipes. They’re the most expensive on our list, but come as a pack of 120 for $30, or 240 for $40 – both pretty good deals for individually packaged screen cleaning wipes.
7. Screen Mom Screen Cleaning Kit
After years of trying to keep her family’s devices clean, Amanda (a mother of 5) founded Screen Mom with the purpose of ridding all screens of dust, smudges and fingerprints. She also wanted something that wouldn’t leave scratches, and wanted it to be safe enough for her kids to have their faces next to all day. Since then, her product has garnered thousands of good reviews, and turned out to be just what she intended.
8. iCloth Screen Cleaner and Protector – EDITOR’S CHOICE
iCloth takes the screen cleaner a step further by offering a formula that protects your screen from smudges and scrapes after you use it. And instead of a bottle and cloth kit, it comes as a pack of pre-moistened wipes, so you can keep a couple in your car, your bag, and at the office.
