Review: ToddyGear Smart Cloths

iPhone Gear iPad Gear Android Gear

Did you know the average American family now owns 24 electronic devices? Yup, 24 devices and guess how many of them are covered with smudges, grime and… worse? Pretty much all of them. And when germs are mixed in with the smudges watch out since it has been shown that germs can live on touch screen devices anywhere from 1 day to 1 month.

Take, for example, my iPad 2.

That’s pretty gross isn’t it?? (And it is the reason I prefer NOT to let others handle my touchscreen devices.)

That’s what is great about the Toddy Smart Cloths.  The Smart Cloths are microfiber cloths that removes dirt, smudges and harmful grime, are protected with AEGIS Microbe Shield and have an antimicrobial coating, protecting the cloth against the microorganisms that contribute to mold, mildew and other negative effects.

A sample came yesterday and I tried it on smudgified iPad 2. After a few seconds it went from this:

To this:

I would say that is quite the improvement.
