Toddy iPad Cleaner, by Toddy Gear

The Toddy iPad Cleaner works on all devices!  Which is fortunate, because I don't own an iPad.  I was excited to try it on a friend's TV we had recently moved, which had fingerprints all over it.  I'm happy to report the Toddy did a great job cleaning that LED screen.  It works equally well on LCD screens, and the various phone screens I tried it on (Super AMOLED, Blackberry, etc.).

It's a small cloth that comes in a folder type package. It's very easy to transport - just be sure you don't get dirt/debris in it, or you'll wind up rubbing that into the screens you want to clean.  But if you do soil the cloth, you can wash it.

Toddy advertises the following on its website (which is actually a fun website):

  • Dual-sided cleaning: you can use both sides of the cloth; one for cleaning, one for polishing (it's obvious which is for which, without an instruction manual).
  • Antimicrobial coating: the coating on the Toddy helps kill germs and bacteria.
  • Naturally hydrophilic: the opposite of hydrophobic, the Toddy will easily absorb oil, dust, etc., without needing any sprays.
  • Machine washable - you can wash your Toddy when it gets dirty!

Also worth nothing, you can now customize a Toddy with your own brand logos and such - which is a great way to differentiate yourself from the standard thumb drives always being handed out at events.
