The Ryan Posted June 26, 2011 Share Posted June 26, 2011 :willy: Fingerprints!!! :help: We all hate them, its one of the down sides to owning a touch screen device - Just a fun one I did for ya'll out there with iPads / iPhones / Tablets... There's a variety of ways to keep your devices looking great all the time. Particularly with a few Adam's products you can keep your electronic devices in new condition by simply keeping them clean. So here's what you'll need: - Adam's Glass Cleaner - Adam's Detail Spray - Adam's Glass Sealant - Adam's Single Soft Micro Fiber Towel - Adam's Glass Cleaning Towel - Adam's Microfiber Applicator Pad Start by setting up a area free of dirty and debris, I like to lay down a Great White Drying Towel to work on: Start by cleaning the back of your device; for the iPad use a Single Soft Micro Fiber and Detail Spray; Here's a shot before with lots of oils and dirt stuck to the apple logo: Please note - DO NOT spray any chemicials directly onto your device - doing so may damage your device by getting heavy amounts of liquids into the cracks and crevices. Spray the Detail spray (1-2) pumps directly into your single soft micro fiber: Wipe the device clean, once clean flip the towel over and buff with a dry side of the towel: Here's a shot of clean Apple logo after the wipe and buff: Flip your device over, and grab your glass cleaner and glass towel, Spray 1-2 Pumps of Adam's Glass Cleaner directly into the glass cleaning towel: Wipe the product onto the glass surface of the device: Flip the towel over and buff to a Finger print free finish: Now that its all pretty again, its time to help make cleaning the glass on these devices easier; enter Adam's Glass Sealant: To all the apple (iDevice) users, 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPads are coated with a "oleo-phobic" coating meaning "Fear of oil" anyone whom has one of these devices know they are still a pain in the rear to clean even with apples fancy glass coating. Adam's glass sealant will not remove or deteriorate your oleo-phobic coating, so there is no need to worry about that. The glass sealant will enhance the optical clarity of the glass while also providing a barrier of protection against oil, making the finger prints much easier to wipe off the devices. Get your Adam's Glass Sealant, and a Adam's Microfiber applicator Pad, apply a minimal amount of glass sealant to the pad, I over used it in this picture: Apply the sealant in up and down motions, followed by right to left to ensure you covered the entire surface of the glass: Allow the sealant to haze, (different temerpatures / humidity will dictate the amount of time for the product to haze): Now that its hazed, its time to remove the sealant, grab your Adam's Glass Cleaner and Adam's Glass Towel again (1-2 pumps of cleaner on the towel again): Flip the towel over and Buff the glass to a picture perfect shine! On to the iPhone (Filthy): Most iPhone users have some sort of protective case on the device, these cases can and will aquire a ton of dust, lint and debris in general, remove your case and reveal the yuck.. Additionally (particularly the iPhone 4) the dust and dirt can cause scratches on the glass surfaces if the device moves around inside the case, its a great idea to make sure you clean the phone and case frequently. My de-shelled devices reveals some nasty stuff: Follow the same cleaning directions outlined for the iPad above. Once your phone is clean, clean out the case itself that houses your precious iPhone as you can see, the case itself is filled with debris: Look at how much dirt I cleaned out of the case with a single soft micro fiber and some detail spray: And finally, the finished products: Now that I had them all clean (including a re-polish of my iMac, I wrote up a about a year ago), I couldn't complete the job without a obligatory "Dylan Shot" All done! Clean up those filthy iDevices! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
