Treo Screen Protector & Screen Cleaning: Dealing with the Oily
One of the aspects about our Treo that we are all aware of is that because the screen is so large (you should always use a Treo Screen Protector) and that we're holding and pressing it against our cheeks when we talk it has a tendency to accumulate some of our natural skin oils.
Combined with the normal dust and other small dirt particles that are attracted to our screen, this 'oily mix' of sorts can become a bit of a nuisance and actually cloud our viewing. Until recently I had no better solution for wiping this off than using my thumb to smudge it all off as best as I could - not the most elegant solution.
However, after searching around for something in my drawers recently I came across one of my sunglasses cleaning cloths when it suddenly struck me how dumb I had been not to think about this sooner - surely I could use this very same cloth to clean my Treo screen I thought. To my delight it worked like magic and promptly removed all the oily mix in one or two wipes bringing shine and sparkle back to my screen.
In the process I suddenly also noticed something that I hadn't really been bothered by before. Namely, the space around the navigation keys (call answer/end particularly) had also accumulated quite a bit of oil and dirt over time and here again I found my small cleaning cloth to be the perfect solution.
If you're looking for an ultra simple and cheap way to make your Treo look as if it had just come out of the box then I can recommend 3M's Microfiber Lens Cleaning Cloth for only $4.99 which is great because it has:
- Unique 3M microfibers lift dust and oils from delicate lenses without the use of chemicals
- Ideal for eyeglass lenses, camera lenses, binoculars, microscopes and other delicate surfaces
- Saves money; reusable cloth is machine washable hundreds of times
- Non-scratching, non-linting
Additionally, this particular cleaning cloth is so large (7in x 6in - 18cm x 16cm) that you can actually cut it in half and still have plenty of surface while reducing its size to one that you can always have in your pocket.
BTW: In case you're wondering, I also use a much needed screen protector on my Treo to save from scratches and among others keep its resale value high...
Treonauts target cleanliness to prevent feeling like a mess...
