You Are Safer Licking A Toilet Seat...

...Than Handling Your Smartphone Or Tablet!

And You're Touching It ALL Day...


We Have The Solution To Keep You Safe!


We all ASSUMED our phones and tablets weren't entirely clean...

...but nobody could've guessed how BAD it really was!

Take a look at this quote real quick from a news article I just read:

"One iPad had 600 units of Staphylococcus aureus, which creates toxins that can lead to food poisoning. This compared with less than 20 units of Staphylococcus per swab of an office toilet, 140 on a smartphone and 480 on the dirtiest keyboard."



How about THIS?

“An article published in 2009 in the journal "Annals of Clinical Microbiology and Antimicrobials" details a study involving the phones of 200 hospital staff members. The researchers found that 94.5 percent of the phones were contaminated with some kind of bacteria, many of which were resistant to multiple antibiotics. By also testing the participants' hands, the researchers were able to show that a significant number of germs were transferred from their hands to their phones, and vice versa. In fact, about 30 percent of the bacteria on the phones ended up on the owner's hands.”



In fact, due to the amount of time you spend with your phone, it's clearly the more dangerous of the two when it comes to transferring bacteria.

And here we are touching these things all day, putting them up to our faces... UGH!

Well, when you touch your phone or tablet, you ARE coming in serious contact with bacteria, viruses, and germs each and every time you touch it.

But that's only half of the problem... it turns out, your phone or tablet isn't exactly the easiest thing the world to clean.

Soap? Water? Regular cloths?

Not only are these UNSAFE to use on your device, they're also not even EFFECTIVE! You'd just be spreading the germs around even more because they are NOT anti-bacterial!

But that doesn't mean there isn't an EASY way to clean 'em...

We just got an absolutely amazing deal on some Targus Microfiber ANTI-BACTERIAL cloths designed specifically to clean the surface of touch screen devices like your phone, tablet, laptop - anything touchscreen.

They are 100% safe to use and will NOT cause any damage to your device. It’s a win all the way around!


After all, who likes chemicals?! They're abrasive, potentially toxic, and can ruin the electronics of your device if you use too much!

This saves you the trouble, without sacrificing any cleaning power!

And since it's microfiber, it's the ONLY cloth design safe enough for your electronics!

If you're cleaning ANY of the following things, you NEED a cloth like this, regular wood-based wipes will irreparably scratch them!


All that bacteria that WAS on your phone or tablet?

Yeah, it's gone now.

And we all know that 99% thing is just a liability legal talk thing; when you wipe down your device with this, it's gonna be SPOTLESS!

Plus, with all those oils and smudges that constantly end up on your screen... you can barely see the screen! This solves that problem too!

Get that screen clean and pristine! YEAH BABY!

Plus, they really do work great. Usually just one wipe and the screen is clean - and you can use it over and over! When I tested this I couldn’t believe how little effort it took to make my screen look like new!


Bacterially speaking, YOUR phones and tablets are absolutely FILTHY. This thing cleans 'em instantly and does it without risking scratches.

It's easy as pie to clean and you can use it over and over and over and over and over!

Here's the deal - you could buy one of these for just $4.97 OR we'll give ya a THREE pack for just $9.97 (and that one even comes with free US shipping!) - 3 Pack at $9.97 (Free US Shipping) - Single Cloth at $4.97

You make the call.

If you think it’s perfectly healthy to go around licking toilet seats in public restrooms, than maybe your grimy phone doesn’t bother you all that much. Otherwise, PLEASE, grab some of these today (I'd recommend several 3 packs - some for you and some for friends & family)!

"A jack," says the little boy.

Rock Bridge Falls

Rain. That was the story for this shot – and the whole day in fact. We heard the first drop hit the camper the night before and it didn’t slow down till nearly lunch the next day. In fact, we had lunch and it was still drizzling. We figured it was about to quit, and with the amount of rainfall that was just delivered, Rock Bridge was bound to have a pretty cool waterfall going on. So, we…(More)

Snowy Egret Sweeping In

I gotta say, I think snowy egrets are among my favorite birds. I love their attractive plumage, their bright yellow eyes and feet, but most of all their impetuous attitude. They may be half the size of their larger cousins, but they seem oblivious to the fact and don’t hesitate to grapple and squawk over a prime fishing spot. That’s what was...(More)

King Of The Mountain

This robust-looking bull elk was photographed one crisp fall morning in Yellowstone National Park. I had plans to get a bit deeper into the park, but when I saw this guy and his harem running around on the side of the mountain, I knew it was worth a stop! It started off with just a few nice captures of the bull on the mountain, but nothing very impressive. I was about to move on when... (More)
