Re: How to clean BOTH sides of Screen Protector No Air Bubbles

I don't know if I'd be comfortable with alcohol as it is a corrosive. My screen protector was applied by the owner of the Invisible Shield kiosk in the mall where I work (I got it for free since I throw him some sales every now and then). When I'm applying an iPhone screen protecter, I use some cotton gloves we have lying around the store and lay the phone in the box it comes in (to keep it from rolling or wollering) and run a credit card along it as I peel off the protective plastic. Usually have no troubles.

The problem is if you take off the protector or if you get 1 piece of dust in there by accident. Impossible to get off.

I tried using tammy, sunglass cleaner, plain soap and water (left hard water residue), etc. The sticky side will catch some dust from almost any product i tried - even in a complete sterile environment.

The alcohol does not damage anything here. I've dunked whole cell phones in alcohol.

Re: How to clean BOTH sides of Screen Protector No Air Bubbles

Is there any way to re use a screen protector that is starting to come off (meaning that the edge is coming up)? Can't iron it or flatten it out some kind of way can you?

Re: How to clean BOTH sides of Screen Protector No Air Bubbles

So this is for a new protector your putting on or is this for one that you already have on?

if it's a brand new one. the method above shouldn't be necessary as it's already perfectly clean and sterile (like a band aid).

If after placing it on you notice there are air bubbles or that something accidentally got under the screen (dust, etc) you can do the above to clean it.

Or you can do what I do and clean it every so often using the above method.

Why would you take it off? Once it's on, let it be. The more you mess with it, the worse it's going to be. That being said, after trying it out, I will never trust another screen protector other than IS.
