ProTip: Carry A Lens Cleaning Cloth For Your Mobile Device’s Camera & Screen
Glasses cloths also known as lens cloths, we all have them especially those of us who wear glasses. These microfiber wonders clean smudges and fingerprints easier than any tissue, toilet paper, or your shirt. If you have a high-end pair of sunglasses they probably came with one of these. Heck, some sunglasses brands even give you a pouch for your glasses made of this material. But I keep a cloth on me pretty much always for a very different reason, my mobile device’s camera and screen.
I hate how my phone’s screen gets smudged up after a day or two of use. Sometimes, especially at night, my phone’s camera’s pictures come out noticeably blurry with lights leaking all across the picture. The simplest solution is to just toss a glasses cloth into your pocket or purse along with your mobile device. They weigh nothing, take up almost no room, and can be the difference between your pictures looking like crap or coming out beautifully. Smudging on your lens can cause the unfortunate results of bright lights bleeding all over the place as you can see in my pictures below from Bud Light Presents: Sensation White Canada 2013.
The pictures above were taken with the same Motorola RAZR HD LTE camera almost one after the other and the difference was the swiping away of the grime built up on the camera’s lens in making the second picture come out way clearer.
Ever try to show someone a video on your phone and they can’t see it as well as they should be able to because your oily fingers and face have covered the screen in a translucent film? A microfiber lens cloth will clean that right up in seconds, no fuss, no muss. The added beauty of these cloths is that you don’t ever need to worry about them. They’re extremely cheap so if you misplace them it’s no big deal and you don’t even have to be concerned about them remaining in your pants when you wash them because it will just get clean with no ill effects if you forget you left it in your pocket.
So grab one of these things today and carry it with you for any and all occasions. You’ll be glad you did!
