Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

This is the first actual product I’ve advertised. I wouldn’t have done so if I hadn’t received Mr. Hartigan’s product and tried it out for myself. Mr. Hartigan supplied two samples of the product. My wife and I both tried it for our reading glasses. The fingerprints disappeared like crazy. Prior to that we’d always used the wet wipes type products for glasses, lenses, etc. I also tried this product on my nook screen and all fingerprint smudges, etc. were gone. There might be other products out there that do this, but I know this one works as promised, and without the need for liquid cleaners to go with it. I think it’s a good price for 2 @ $4.99.

 How Clean, is Your Screen?
MOBiLE CLOTH releases a high-tech cloth that grabs fingerprints and smudges,
without a scratch.

John Hartigan, was tired of looking at his iPhone touchscreen, notebook screen, book reader, and camera display constantly seeing fingerprints, grime and smears. He tried his shirt, his pants, his friends’ shirts, a towel in the bathroom anything and everything but all in vain! All it did was smear things around and leave lint,  scratches and frustration. He decided it was time to DO something about it! After much research and testing he came up with MOBiLE CLOTH.

MOBiLE CLOTH is a unique high tech material made of micro fibers 100 times thinner than a human hair! It is woven into a special pattern, which John calls “nubs.” Each nub acts like hundreds of tiny suction cups to pull fingerprints smudges, and all kinds of other material away from the surface of your device with a few swipes. Unlike cotton or other natural fibers that cannot handle oils and can scratch, MOBiLE CLOTH loves all mobile devices and would never hurt them. And no water or cleaning solution is needed.

“After testing the cloth for a year and getting such positive feedback from friends and family on how well it worked I realized that everyone with a touch screen had to have it!” — John Hartigan President MOBiLE CLOTH by Hartigan Industries Inc.

It is the right size to get the job done, and when folded, fits in a pocket or bag easily. It is washable and will be effective for years if the care instructions are followed.

Specifically designed for:

– iPhone, iPod & iPads
– Touchscreen displays
– Mobile phones & music players
– Digital book readers
– Notebook, netbook, camera &video displays
