Stop Spreading the Germs!

More Cleaning Products for the iPad/iPod!

The topic of cleaning your iPad or iPod seems to always come up when with working with teachers or therapists who work with children. A previous post featured the iKlear product which was all I could find at the time as an antibacterial cleaner for the iDevices. Sometimes you just stumble upon information or products incidentally despite all the keywords, terms you use when searching the internet.

My latest find was an anti-bacterial foam cleaner for the iPad/iPod made by Zagg called Zaggfoam.  Available for around $10 I found it at Target but also found it listed on the Internet at Staples, Sears, Amazon, Best Buy for about the same price (actually Sears was the lowest price!).

Nice to have a cleaner readily available at local stories that can fight the germs our students share with us daily!

Another cleaner I stumbled upon searching the Internet was the SQUEEGit. Developed by Cleaner Gear, Inc.,  the SQUEEGit has a squeegee surface/blade and sprayer all in a small gadget.

It uses their CleanAid solution as the sanitizer and is listed as safe for iPod and iPads screens.  Available for $14.99 (no shipping costs) on the Cleaner Gear, Inc website.

We know where our kids hands have been! Use a cleaner and stop spreading the germs!

        Absolutely! Please email me your mailing address for us to ship you sample.

        We also believe that anti-bacterial cleaning is very important for smartphone and tablet users. Many people may not know how bacteria infested their gadgets that they put on their faces are. So it’s great to see that people like yourself are taking the initiative to educate.
