Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Hello Kitty … a little bit of a sick obsession, but that’s okay. I have been collecting Hello Kitty everything since I was little, beginning with the fondest of memories of my mom taking me to the now-defunct Noodle Kidoodle store to check out all the new Sanrio stationery and accessories, and to buy some Babysitter’s Club books. Hello Kitty had a lot more friends back then — you don’t see as much of Keroppi, Pochacco, or Spottie Dottie anymore. I guess she doesn’t need as many friends now since her face is literally EVERYWHERE and it seems like she just gets more and more popular with every new year.
So I wanted to do a little review of this screen cleaning kit I found at my local 7-11 the other day. It was super cheap (I think it was $4.99), and it actually works very well for a bunch of electronics. I used it on my MacBook Air and my screen is now crystal clear, and so is my phone.
The kit comes with a 3-mL bottle of screen cleaner, and, like I said above, the cleaner works pretty well. I just sprayed a couple of times onto the microfiber cloth (below) and it cleaned my MacBook Air screen perfectly. The bottle is small, but it’s really for on-the-go use, so you can re-fill it with any generic screen cleaner whenever you want. I slacked off on cleaning my electronics for so long that I’m now on a cleaning kick (thanks to the cuteness of this Hello Kitty kit), so I’m going to buy a big bottle of screen cleaner soon because I have a feeling this little 3mL bottle will run out fairly quickly.
And the cutest part of this two-piece set is this little hot pink microfiber cloth (6″ x 6″) that is the perfect size for cell phones, tablets, and even laptops (especially the smaller MacBook Air). This cloth can easily be cleaned by hand, or, if your electronics are really dirty like mine (my bronzer especially always rubs off on my phone), you can throw it in the washing machine on a warm cycle. Just be sure not to use a fabric softener because that will clog the open spaces in the microfiber.
I bought this screen cleaning kit at my local 7-11 for just under $5, so I think your best bet would be to check out your local convenience stores to see if they have it (a lot of the bigger chain stores, like 7-11, probably will). For some reason I cannot find this particular kit anywhere online, except for one that’s listed on eBay that costs a little more ($6.99).
There are a couple of different Hello Kitty screen cleaning kits that come with larger sprays, different cloths, and even a carrying case to hold the spray and cloth, which can be found on Amazon.com.
