appleJuce: Sooner or later the LCD screen on your camera (tablet, laptop or smartphone) will lose its luster due to the dust, dirt and smudges accumulating on its surface. The dirt reduces the screen’s clarity, brightness and color accuracy but it can be restored with a good cleaning. Many household cleaners contain ingredients that can damage the screen’s sensitive surface. appleJuce is a complete solution for cleaning these devices. The 2oz appleJuce pump is ideal for use at home, in the studio, or on location. Its TSA-approved size is small enough for travel and fits easily in an organization case so appleJuce is handy whenever you need it. appleJuce is alcohol and ammonia free and it removes stains/oils from all screens, it also polishes the surface of your electronics. Environmentally friendly, appleJuce has a green apple scent and the package includes appleJuce solution in a 2oz pump bottle and two reusable screen cleaning cloths for a suggested retail price of $12.95.
