How To Clean Your Device Screens

Today's Tip: How to clean the screens 
on your smartphones and tablets. 
If yours are getting 'gunky' there's an 
easy and safe way to clean them.
This is a picture of dirty screen on my ipad
 and iphone. It's hard to get a good photo of
the screen grime. This safe cleaner will get
 rid of all the fingerprints, stickiness, and
smudges and make it smooth and shiny
 again. It will disinfect it too, which is
 a good thing during cold and flu season.
It's equal parts white vinegar and water.
 Keep a small container handy and use it 
whenever you feel your are screens getting
tacky and smudgy. I keep mine under the
 sink. It works on eyeglasses too and
computer screens. Just put a little on a
microfiber cloth, just enough to wipe
off the screen. Then wipe off with a dry
 section of the cloth. It should just
 immediately evaporate. 
Never spray it on your screens. 
Never use anything with alcohol.
Never use glass cleaner, like Windex.
 Nice and shiny clean.
And easy to keep that way.
