In today’s tech-centric world, keeping our devices clean is crucial. From smartphones to large monitors, clean screens not only improve visibility but also maintain hygiene. This post compares iCloth's two screen cleaning formulas: Premium Pro-Grade and 70% Isopropyl Alcohol. Understanding their differences helps you choose the best option for your needs.

Understanding Screen Cleaning Formulas

Various screen cleaning solutions in bottles.

What is a Screen Cleaning Formula?

A screen cleaning formula is a liquid solution designed to clean electronic screens without causing damage. These formulas typically contain a combination of purified water, isopropyl alcohol, and other components to effectively remove dirt, grease, and fingerprints from sensitive surfaces.

Why Are Screen Cleaning Formulas Important?

Electronic screens are delicate and can be easily damaged by harsh chemicals. Using the right screen cleaning formula ensures that your devices are cleaned safely and effectively. This is particularly important for devices with special coatings, like anti-glare or anti-fingerprint treatments.

Safety and Surface Compatibility

The Premium Pro-Grade wipes are safer for a broader range of surfaces, including those with special coatings. Their lower alcohol content minimizes the risk of damage, making them ideal for sensitive devices.

The 70% Isopropyl Alcohol wipes, while stronger, may not be suitable for all surfaces. Their higher alcohol content can damage coatings on more delicate screens.

Cleaning Power

Our Premium Pro-Grade wipes are sufficient for general cleaning and everyday maintenance and provide a gentle yet effective clean. For tougher cleaning tasks or areas requiring stronger sanitization, 70% Isopropyl Alcohol wipes offer greater cleaning power.


Both wipes are individually wrapped, ensuring they remain moist and hygienic. This makes them convenient to carry in your bag or pocket and ready for use whenever needed.

How to Choose the Right Wipe for Your Needs

Consider Your Devices

Premium Pro-Grade wipes are the safer choice for devices with special coatings, such as anti-glare or anti-fingerprint. These wipes provide effective cleaning without risk of damage for regular use on smartphones, tablets, and eyewear.

For devices handled frequently or exposed to tougher grime, like laptops, desktops, and touchscreens, 70% Isopropyl Alcohol wipes offer the sanitizing power needed to keep them clean and germ-free.

Frequency of Use

If you clean your devices regularly, Premium Pro-Grade wipes offer a gentle solution that can be used daily. For more occasional, deep cleaning sessions, 70% Isopropyl Alcohol wipes are ideal.
