There’s nothing worse than screwing up a great shot because your lens was smudged—except maybe screwing up your expensive lens by cleaning it with a cheap cloth. Same goes for your designer sunglasses and all those glass screens on all those devices you carry around.
Toss that flimsy little cleaning cloth they gave you for free when you bought your stuff, and upgrade to the 9×9 Smart Cloth. Yeah, I’m with you, I thought a cloth was just a cloth too—and as long as it wasn’t scratchy, it would do. But there’s more to getting your lenses (and other sensitive screens and surfaces) clean than a simple wipe with a lint-free cloth.
A large, 9-inch by 9-inch, dual-sided microfiber cleaning cloth, the Smart Cloth seems simple but there’s actually some tech packed in there. The microfiber is naturally hydrophilic, which means it not only attracts dust and water but also easily absorbs oils and smudges without the need for sprays.
The plush side is great for taking care of greasy smudges, like the ones you constantly leave on your iPad’s touchscreen. Flip the 9×9 over, and use the silky microfiber side to polish the glass to a clear shine.
Available in a wide variety of colors and patterns to match your personal style, it also has an anti-microbial coating that prevents mold and mildew from building up after multiple uses. But should it start to get a little funky, toss it in the washing machine and it’s as good as new. Your glass is covered.
