Keep your touchscreens clean with the iRoller—a compact, reusable way to lift away fingerprints and dust without sprays or cloths. A few gentle swipes with the sticky surface, and your touchscreen will be smudge free. The iRoller’s sticky material was originally invented by plastic surgeon Dr. Stanley Taub for organizing operating instruments. He realized that it had other uses, like cleaning oil and debris from touchscreens. Because you can use it over and over again, the iRoller is more economical than disposable, pre-moistened wipes. It’s easier to manage than bottles of liquid cleaner, too. Made to fit in your backpack, purse, or glove box, the retractable cover protects the sticky surface when you store it. To clean your iRoller, just run the roller under tap water and air dry or gently blot with a lint-free cloth. Your iRoller will be ready and waiting for the next round of touchscreen cleanup.

    Hi Everyone!

    As the original inventor of Insta-Hold, a material used for organizing operating instruments, I realized that this same material used to keep utensils in place had so many more uses due to its properties. The iRoller is a liquid-free, reusable screen cleaner for your smartphone, tablet, GPS or any other touchscreen device allowing you to keep it free of dirt and fingerprints. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi Bridget,

    It's similar to a lint brush in that you can easily see when it needs to be rinsed. How often you need to clean depends on how often you use it.

    @Stanley : The iRoller does not have to be refreshed very often, only when it's gripping surface becomes blunted by accumulated debris, Excessive washing, like after every use may reduce the life of its tackyness. I EFFECT IT CAN BE USED COUNTLESSS TIMES BEFORE IT HAS TO BE WASHED.

    The iRoller can be refreshed under warm tap water. However It can be used countess times before it's tacky surface becomes blunted. Do not use any abrasive cloths on its surface during the washing process. You can use your fingers to rotate the roller when it's under water, and gently massage the surface clean.

    @Stanley Dear Dave,

    Finger marks from grandkids are usually water based smudges from food and liquids and usually dried out and stuck on the screen. The iRoller may not be able to remove them if the adhesion is greater than the pick up power of the iRoller. However if you can massage them into a smudge with the tip of your thumb or index finger, then the iRoller will be able to lift them off and clean the screen surface.

  • Amy

    10/9/2014 1:13 PM

    Hi Julie,

    You can definitely get multiple uses, however it all depends on how dirty the screen is and how much "dirt" is leftover on the roller. It will be easy to see when it needs to be cleaned.

  • Stanley

    10/9/2014 1:23 PM

    Hi Sue,

    I'm checking with Stanley now to see if he is familiar with the sticky brush you're referring to. I have done some research though and I think I know which product you are thinking of. The iRoller is a flat roller designed specifically for touch screens like phones and ipads. It doesn't have any bristles attached like the "sticky brush" does which is meant more for furniture or clothing. Hoping this helps.
