Dry-foam cleaning kit sanitizes your grimy gadgets

The Qmadix Smudge-Free Dry-Foam Cleaning Kit takes a drier approach than most electronics cleaning products. Antimicrobial cleaning cloths come with the kit, making it even more attractive to germaphobes.

My iPad screen has never again looked as good as the day I peeled the plastic wrapper off. My phone looks like I've taken it hiking and set it in the dirt. Which I have.

I'm not the only person with dusty and dingy electronics. That's why there's a thriving industry of electronics cleaning products. Most of these involve some sort of liquid that you spray on. The Qmadix Smudge-Free Dry-Foam Cleaning Kit dispenses with all that dampness.

The $19.99 kit comes with antimicrobial microfiber cloths, but the star of the show is the dry foam spray that comes in a little bottle. Qmadix touts the foam's smudge-resistant, dust-resistant, and anti-static properties.

Qmadix says that the kit is good for smudges, dirt, grime, and makeup--in other words, the usual suspects. The antimicrobial cloths are germaphobe-friendly and can be washed up to 50 times without losing their bacteria-killing stamina.
