The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the temperatures are rising in my area. I actually have windows open right now. The fresh air smells and feels heavenly!  I’m ready to get started on my spring cleaning to-do lists, which includes de-gunking my phone, laptop, desktop, anything with a screen basically. Thanks to the nice folks at Dust Off who sent me a few of their screen cleaning products free of charge to try and share my opinions with you, I’ll have this chore done quickly and safely in no time. All opinions and love of cleaning are my own.

Everything I need to keep my screens and media clean! 

See those cute printed mobile screen clothes? My girls jumped on these pronto when I opened up my Dust Off package.  I can’t say I blame them, there phone screens are usually gross. 

Yes, my cell phone gets a little messy, especially on days I’ve got my full face- I’m ‘ready-to-take-on-the-world makeup going on, but their phones? There are so many sticky finger prints on them; I wonder how they see anything!  Everybody got their own cute doubles sided microfiber cloth and we set to work cleaning our mobile phones.

My mobile phone cleaned up easily with just the cloth I’m happy to say.  The girls’ phones however, required a squirt from the cleaning spray pen tucked in with our goodies. I’ll be keeping the cleaning pen and my cute Zebra print cloth in my purse from now on!

Next up, it was time for me to clean my laptop and desktop screens. I opened up the  Dust Off Ultimate Screen Care Kit.  It comes with everything you need to clean all your screens and your CD and DVDS too and has a handy carrying case!

Kit includes:

  • Screen Shammy
  • Plasma Screen cloth
  • CD/DVD cloth
  • Sweep key fob
  • Dust-Off advanced LCD/Plasma Screen Spray
  • EVA Storage case

The shammy and cleaning spray worked well together.  My screens were streak free and the cleaning spray is practically odorless, making it perfect to take on road trips too. I really like all the products I received from Dust-Off and invite you to visit their website to see all the great screen cleaning products they offer. 

I bet you've looked at your screens a couple of times while reading this and decided you needed to clean your screens too. Before you do, here are some helpful screen and media cleaning tips from Dust-Off. 

Screen Cleaning Tips:

  1. For safety, always turn off your screen before using any spray cleaner.
  2. Allow screen to cool before spraying cleaner on surface.
  3. Always check your microfiber clothes before use making sure they are free of debris that could scratch screens.
  4. Don’t apply excessive pressure when using microfiber clothes.
  5. And here’s an important bonus cleaning tip that I was not aware of:
  6. Do not use wood-based products such as tissue paper, paper towels on your screens and media. They may scratch screens.

I'm really looking forward to my annual spring cleaning this year because it has been a long, harsh winter. I hope you are looking forward to spring too!

Slap ‘Appy- Free Clean Master phone boost

in , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Tuesday, September 02, 2014

Hello September! I’m so glad you are here because that means one of my favorite seasons is approaching.  Fall!  I adore fall and all that this season provides us. 

Fall Flowers

  • Mums and colorful leaves
  • Pies and casseroles
  • Football and bonfires
  • Boots and sweaters

Fall is a stellar season for so many happy out- door activities and is also a good time to clean.  Wait, did I just pop the pretty fall bubble by mentioning cleaning? 

Yes, I did. House, car, deck, porch, it’s that wonderful time of year again to get your house in order before the Holidays. Before I start sharing those kind of cleaning tips, let’s start with something that is with you no matter the season and could probably use a good cleaning right now- your smartphone.

We are an Android home, so most all the apps I share here will be Android friendly. Such is the case for this amazing cleaning tool- The Clean Master Phone Boost. My husband downloaded and installed it on my phone when he got tired of hearing me say my phone was running slow again. 

Clean Master Phone Boost App

About Clean Master App:
“Simple, fast and accurate, Clean Master is the world’s most downloaded Android cleaner, speed boost and antivirus app, designed to help you reclaim storage, boost memory, enhance speed, and secure your device against malicious apps and vulnerabilities”.

Running Clean Master is super easy and quick. Every time I unlock my home screen their a little percentage icon that shows if I need to give my phone a quick cleaning. If the percentage is up over 50%, I just click the broom and the Clean Master app does the rest.

This app is speedy quick! It shows me which files and apps are slowing up my phone (usually Instagram and photo gallery) and asks me if I want to remove junk files.

Yes, I do want to remove junk files, Clean Master, thanks for asking.

And just like that, my phone is clean again. You can clean your phone in less than 30 seconds, or do a more in-depth cleaning as time permits.

I highly recommend this app for your smartphone too. Head on over to Google Play and download your free copy today.

Please share in comments- what smartphone app do you use most often?

It is the end of the year my friends and I can’t think of a better way to end a great year of reviews than with 3 product reviews! was kind enough to send me 3 office supply products shown below free of charge in the hopes I would share my thoughts with you. All opinions are 100% in own and may differ from yours.

Product 1: Rolling Wrist Rest:
The rolling wrist rest is ergonomically designed to help reduce joint stress. Independent 360 degree wheel rotation makes it easy to work with your mouse or keyboard without lifting your wrist.

My Review:
Old methods die hard, so even though I have used the rolling wrist rest for a few days, I still find myself lifting my wrist more often than not. In time I may get used to utilizing it. I do find my wrist feels less fatigued just resting it on the wrist rest while I read online, so I do recommend this product for those of us that work a lot online, or on a computer. You can learn more about this product here.

Product 2: Smarter Dual Action Gloves:
Microfiber, dual action Smarter Gloves are a smartphone users dream come true. No longer do you have to take off your glove to answer a call. These gloves provide any finger activation, touchscreen cleaning and are washable & reusable. Perfect for your tablets, readers, music, Navigation systems and more.

My Review:
I was excited to give these gloves a try during our last cold snap. I’m happy to report they really do work! I kept my gloves on to answer calls, clean my screen and share pictures on Instragram. I did have to take my glove off to text though because I grew frustrated with my misspelled words. As with the wrist roller, I think there is a learning curve and the more I use these gloves the more proficient at texting with them I’ll become. I like them and think you will too! You can learn more about this product here.

Product 3: ReStor-It Furniture Touch-up Kit:
For use on wood and wood laminates pieces like cabinets, doors, frames and more.  This set of 3 filler sticks and 5 touch-up markers fills and stains to restore beauty to furniture.

My Review:
I couldn’t wait to try this out on a few new dings our Cherry Entertainment center took over Christmas. Since my husband is a custom furniture and cabinet maker, I let him do the honors. He was very pleased with this set saying it is the most comprehensive touch-up kit he’s seen short of a professional one and he liked the way the product did what it was supposed to do quickly and easily. I loved the fact that I can no longer see scratches in my entertainment center. We do highly recommend this product! You can learn more about it here.

That’s it folks- my last reviews of 2013. Thanks so much for reading them. I hope you found them helpful in making a purchasing decision. That is why I do what I do here on my little blog that could.
Please share in comments if you have used any of these kinds of products before.

Stay tuned for more reviews and giveaways coming soon in 2014. I think it’s going to be a great year!
