I know a guy who hates it – HATES IT – when anyone touches his computer screen. He’s a big guy, with a dark beard, long hair and many tattoos. Get close to his screen and you can hear the grumble starting deep down in his belly.
In today’s world of smartphones, tablets and touchscreen avionics, not touching a screen is near impossible. So what to do?
For starters, don’t eat a messy peanut butter and honey sandwich — or Cheezits or Goldfish crackers or apple slices (can you tell I have kids?) — before adjusting your Dynon Skyview, or iPhone for that matter.
But fingerprints and other muck on our screens is inevitable.
That’s where iCloth Avionics’ “One-Step Anti-Static Cleaning Wipe” comes in handy.
Made of Aerospace Grade DuPont Sontara, the wipes contain isopropyl alcohol and “safely clean EFIS, IFE, smartphone, tablets, other handheld devices and eyewear.”
Me? I usually wipe my iPhone on my pants leg. But I rarely allow my phone to get dirty.
That said, when a box showed up with some samples, I tore one open and went to work. In moments my phone looked like it had just come out of the box — if you ignored the slight dents — and my laptop monitor once again sparkled.
Best of all, the wipes are individually packaged. Buy a set and throw a few in your flight bag. No unwieldy “wet wipe” canister that might pop open at an inopportune time.
For now, 100 iCloth Avionics Cleaning Wipes cost $29.99. Learn more at iClothAvionics.com.
