Geeky Gadget Review: The iEraser

In my never-ending quest to satisfy my OCD fever of keeping my gadgets clean, I’ve stumbled across a new cleaning gadget that may just be the one. The folks over at iEraser have a simple and yet very effective way to keep those fingerprints and smudges away from your screens. The palm sized eraser is large enough for laptop\tablets screens and is still great for those uber-important smartphones.
The soft sided cleaner is made of a gentle-for-electronics microfiber. The baby skin smooth microfiber picks up all manner of dust and dirt while destroying fingerprints and smudges. Using it is as simple as swiping it across your dirty screen and BAM! it’s done. The hand gripping rectangle is made a durable plastic, you won’t feel like you’re breaking this bad boy – not one bit.
Does it work? Boy howdy does it ever! I swiped over my laptop, desktop monitor, flat screen tv and even my Galaxy Note and all were left with that mind soothing feeling of clean. The hardest time I had cleaning was on my Note and that’s because I got the face of it grimy from sweat. Yes, I know, that gross. Even with the grime, the pad put a massive dent in my face crud. The iEraser has been the closest I’ve come though to having a perfect all in one gadget cleaner for my spread of screen filled gadgets. Using it every day hasn’t been a problem, it still works like the very first time. My OCD has taken a breather!
Geeks with smaller hands might find the iEraser a bit awkward. My big hamhocks held it with no problem but I can see others working out a different way to swipe. As stated earlier, this puppy is sturdy. It’s not very heavy, actually it’s pretty light, and yet it feels like it was made out of iron. I can’t imagine what it would take to break it aside from willful destruction. Extra points for the quality and craftsmanship!
A couple of bonus touches: the iEraser is made here in the U.S.A., something that is a major selling point for a lot of folks. Each one sold also gets a 25¢ donation sent to a designated charity. Black ones fund Wounded Veterans Charities, Pink helps Children’s Cancer Charities and White slips cash towards Disaster Relief Foundations. That’s just amazing coming from a smaller company in this day and age. The last thing that impressed my was the “Handcrafted By” line on the cardboard insert. Instead of a vague slip of paper with pre-stamped numbers, iEraser has their crew write their initials on each package. With a marker. It’s the little things folks.
The iEraser can be picked up at the site for $14.95 but they usually have some form of deal running there and on their Facebook page. If you’re feeling saucy, they can even whip you up one with your custom logo on it!
