I love being able to touch the screens to make them function the way I want them to. When I am reading on my iPhone for example I something have to expand the screen to make print appear larger so I can read it (my eyes are getting old – I need bifocals).
Having touch screens are great but there is a draw back – they get dirty easily. Especially when my kids handle my iPad. The screen is smudgy and gross.
I do have a small cloth that I gently use to clean the screen. It does an “OK” job. Sometimes it leaves streaks.
My husband once sprayed Windex on a cloth and used it to wipe down my iPad. I cringed! I was so worried he’d get the liquid inside the iPad some how and it would be destroyed. It worked but I asked him never to do that again. I don’t want to take any chances. I cannot afford to buy a new iPad.
The C6 has a special dry compound that “bonds” with the oils left on your device. The oils come from your skin (finger tips). It’s the oils that cause the screens to look smudgy. The C6 helps to clean off the oils leaving behind a sparking clean surface.
The C6 cleaner is available in different sizes and shapes and can be used on iPhones, iPods, iPads, Kindles and other tablets and phones. They can also be used on binoculars, telescopes and cameras.
Carson Optical sent me several samples to use on my devices. I tried to take before/after pictures of my iPad but I couldn’t get the photo to turn out right.
I tried taking a photo of my iPhone too (below). If you look carefully you can see little specs of dust (dirt?) on my phone. The black thing resting on top of the screen if the C6 cleaner.
Below is a photo of my phone after I used the cleaner. If you can see in the photo the little specs are gone.
I know you can’t really tell from the photos but the C6 cleaned my iPhone screen beautifully. It removed all the little specs of dust (dirt?) as well as the oils from my fingers.
I have used the C6 on my iPad and Kindle Fire too. It does a great job of keeping them clean. Plus I know my devices are safe from potential damage from liquid cleaners or scratches from cleaning cloths.
The C6 is available in disposable packs (12-16per package depending on the size). I have a few of the disposable ones. I have used them several times and they still work great, so you don’t necessarily have to toss them out after each individual use.
The C6 is also available for cameras, binoculars and telescopes. It’s made a little differently. These special cleaners have the cleaning pad on one side and a soft brush on the other side. You can use the brush to remove loose debris from your camera lens (or other lens). Then use the pad side to remove any oils or fingerprints.
These cleaners are a nice, compact size and can easily fit inside your camera bag. They are about the size of a pen (just thicker). The brush even retracts to keep it free from dirt and debris too. The cleaner end has a cap to protect it as well.
My camera lens and view screen are sparkly clean now. I’ve always wondered what the best way was to clean them. I was afraid to use a window cleaner in fear of the liquid damaging my precious camera.
The brush end is also great to remove dirt and debris from underneath your cell phone case too.
I really like the Carson Optical C6 lens and screen cleaners. They are a “must have” if you own devices that utilize the touch of a finger to operate it. Don’t take a chance of getting a liquid cleaner into your device and ruining it, or risk scratching the screen with a cloth. For around $10 you can pick up a Carson Optical C6 lens and screen cleaner to keep your devices sparkling clean and give yourself peace of mind knowing that you using a safe cleaner.
