Bart 1 Products, a manufacturer of products designed to customize your personal devices and keep them clean, has added another product to its innovative line. The Mini Peel & Clean Pads are made to clean smaller portable devices like cell phones, smartphones, GPS receivers, and calculators.

These unique foam pads are sticky on both sides, which means each pad can be used more than once. The package contains five pads and a nice faux suede cloth to use on display screens. The cloth helps clean those grimy fingerprints and smudges. Although I did notice after a few uses the suede from the cloth started to peel off in tiny pieces.

The pads are easy to use. You just peel the liner of the Peel & Clean Pad and place on the keys and display. Make sure you press the pad down good though, to get all the dirt that may be hard to reach.
The pads are designed for instant removal, so don’t leave the pad on the device. Apply the pad and repeat as needed. No need to be concerned about damage either, since the pads are made to safely remove debris from keys and displays.

Overall, I was impressed by these little pads. However I don’t know how filthy other users let their devices get, but I don’t let my stuff get that dirty, so all they cleaned off my phone was dust. Dust is annoying though, and the pad worked fine in cleaning my screen off. If you are someone who travels often and is always stuffing your devices into different bags then these may be perfect for you.
The Peel & Clean Pads are good for more than one use and the package is small enough to carry in your bag with you as you travel. Like I said, if you have a hard time keeping things clean, then these pads may become your new best friend.
- The pads can be used more than once
- They don’t cost very much
- The suede cloth comes apart after a few uses
- The pads don’t remove stuck on dirt, unless you clean it a few times, but I hope your device isn’t that dirty.
