When I used this product, I found that it was hard to remove from the packaging. Once I had it opened I noticed a couple of things. First, the wipes seem small - about the same size as a Wet Wipe. It was too small to wipe a television flat screen. I needed 3 wipes.

The other thing that I noticed, the wipes don't stay damp and dry out very quickly. I understand that we don't want to saturate our electronics with liquid, however, you need it damp enough to clean and to stay damp the entire time.

I don't endorse this product because I feel like it isn't big enough and isn't damp enough to do a great job for EVERY electronic. However, that being said, it was quite effective for wiping down cell phones and hand held devices and cleaning them without issue.

My Alternative Suggestion:
For most electronics you don't need to use a wipe, unless you have spilled something on it and didn't clean it up right away. But, for those electronics (ie: television screens, computer monitors, laptop screens, cell phones and tablets) that you need to wipe down I would use a microfiber towel with a spritzing of water on it and use that. Just remember not to clean in a circuit manner. Never rub the same spot for very long. Remember, gentle is key with your important electronics!

Make it a great one!
