The touchscreen on your smartphone or tablet lets you operate the gadget with ease, but it also picks up unattractive fingerprints and smudges that can be difficult to wipe off with a basic cloth. Microfiber cloths are designed to lift off these oily marks and leave the screen clear and polished. Many microfiber cloths clean touchscreens without requiring water or liquid cleaners. Always check the instructions for the best cleaning procedure.
The Toddy is one such microfiber cloth that works on all touchscreens and doesn’t require moistening sprays. Toddy cloths come in a variety of bright, colorful patterns. They’re two-sided; the textured side cleans the touchscreen, lifting off fingerprints and smudges, and the smooth, patterned side lets you buff and polish the screen afterward.
Microfiber cloths vary in price. If you’re trying to save money, see if your smartphone or tablet comes with a microfiber cloth, or use one that came with your eyeglasses or sunglasses.
