Kids and technology means dirty screens. Let’s face it. The kids must touch everything. And if your kids are anything like mine, thanks to the iPad – EVERY screen is presumed to be a touch screen, even our TV. Sorry kids, our TV is NOT touch screen – at least NOT YET.

How to Keep Your Screens Clean

Let’s look at keeping our screens clean thanks to gooey kid finger prints. Here are a few solutions that help our screens stay clean:


Toddy Gear sent the kids over a Screenster to test out. Here is Zeke, aka Spiderman (he wears this EVERYDAY) showing you how it works.

Screensters are 100% microfiber. There is a plush side to clean and a silky side to polish. No liquids needed and it’s machine washable. This would make an awesome stocking stuffer.

Smart Cloth

This is the smart cloth, also by Toddy Gear. We received a smart cloth as well. It comes in a cute little bag, who doesn’t love a stylish-pretty screen cleaner? They have a huge selection. This would be a great gift for a co-worker. They have several designs to choose from. They work just like the Screensters.

Electronic Wipes

If you are more into the wipes, we have used these Endust electronic wipes for our smart TVs. They work about the same as microfibers. We had a house cleaner who used windex on a screen. Thankfully no damage was done, but we introduced her to these and just had her use wipes since she ended up using our microfiber as a dust rag.
