New screen cleaning solution from WHOOSH!

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

“Germy” classrooms and dirty tablet and computer screens make for a very “sticky” situation that’s downright unhealthy for students, teachers, and families. With children touching shared tablets and computer screens every day, the use of a safe, non-toxic cleaning solution is vital to maintain classroom health. And now, for this back to school season, there’s something you can do about it — thanks to WHOOSH! and it’s all-new, non-toxic Screen Shine solution that’s proven to rid screens of germs while forming a protective layer that resists dirt build-up, smudges and fingerprints.

WHOOSH! Screen Shine is made with non-toxic, biodegradable surfactants as opposed to harsh chemicals, making it entirely classroom-friendly. WHOOSH! does not contain alcohol, acids, ammonia, chlorine, petroleum distillates, phosphates or volatile organic compounds, meaning that parents and teachers need not to worry about any “uh-oh” accidents when left in the hands of students.

The solution cleans dirty screens and leaves an ultra-thin invisible coating that resists dirt build-up, smudges, and fingerprints. This ensures that screens will remain clean – an added bonus during a busy school day.

It’s also the only screen and device cleaner that has won a 2014 CES Innovations Design & Engineering Award, is certified by the Sharp STAR Program for use on Sharp AQUOS BOARD interactive displays, and carries a ‘Safe for Your Screen’ guarantee.*

So, just how dirty are our mobile and tablet devices? According to Yahoo!, the average cell phone is up to ten times dirtier than a toilet seat! “We need to extend our personal hygiene practices to our mobile devices,” WHOOSH! President and CEO Jason Greenspan said. “If we wash our hands several times a day, and we should, then we should do the same with our smartphones, tablets, computers, and televisions. That’s how important the practice of good tech hygiene is.”

WHOOSH! Screen Shine is currently available in 3 sizes at www.whooshscreenshine.com: Pocket (.3 fluid ounce) for $5.99, Go (1 fluid ounce) for $9.99, and Duo (one 3.4 fluid ounces and one .3 fluid ounce) for $19.99. All sizes come with a 6”x6” WHOOSH! micro-fiber antimicrobial cloth. WHOOSH! is currently available for sale in Apple retail stores, Fry’s Electronics, Adorama Camera and at many wireless stores across North America, as well as online at apple.com and Amazon.com.

New York City Transit and the Arizona Cardinals NFL Association are just two of the many organizations using WHOOSH! to keep all of their screens clean, polished, and protected.
