OK, so of all the technological wizardry and outright toys I thought I’d never be reviewing for Ausdroid when I started as part of the team some 3+ years ago a cloth was surely on that list but here I am, starting to review; well… a cloth!
We all have the same issue with our mobile devices, fingerprints and greasy smears on the screens. It doesn’t matter how good you are at cleaning your hands and keeping your device clean it will always happen. We (humans) naturally excrete oil from our skin, it’s its just something we’re going to have to deal with unless someone comes up with a screen that’s consistently oleophobic and outright prevents fingerprints etc from getting on there.
In the meantime, the Mobile Cloth has just been released in Australia through Wholesale Distributor PC Range who already distrubute brands such at Droidax and internet routers by Billion in South Australia. It’s a pretty simple concept, a cleaning cloth that removes the unsightly smears, fingerprints and marks from your mobile device (or laptop) screen, removes germs along the way and it’s machine washable.
The timing of its arrival was quite opportunistic too, just over a week after my Nexus 9 had arrived and really started to accumulate fingerprints and smears on the screen that were getting fairly difficult to remove. The Mobile Cloth is actually very good, the easy clean up on my tablet and how shiny the screen looked after I’d given it a good clean impressed me. There weren’t any little pieces of lint that you can get from some cleaning cloths I’ve tried and the screen looked like the moment I first unpacked the device from the box!
When you think about the cost, it’s not the cheapest cleaning cloth on the market at the moment. But at $17.95 for a pack of 5 standard cloths or $10.99 for 1 standard and 1 nano cloth, compared the results these are a really nice little stocking stuffer leading into Christmas. Keep in mind too that these aren’t just for mobile tech, you could easily use the Mobile Cloth for cleaning camera lenses, Laptop Screens or even your glasses.
If the Mobile Cloth is something that you think you might like, head over to the Australian Mobile Cloth Site to order yours today.
