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 dirty 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.
