Paperlike Cleaning Kit Review – Wipe The Smudges Away

Last Updated on August 8, 2022 by Saad and Ernest

Paperlike’s premise is simple. Create products that cater to creative professionals and casual users alike. We’ve already gone through their pencil grips – and now, we move on to their cleaning kit. A part of the Paperlike Pro Bundle, the cleaning kit aims to remove fingerprints, smudges, dirt, debris, and residue from your touchscreen device.

With that said, the cleaning kit also aims to improve our current trusty cleaning process of using some sort of glass cleaner combined with a micro-fiber cloth. Here’s our review of the Paperlike Cleaning Kit.

Design And Build Quality

The Paperlike Cleaning Kit is a one-stop package for all your cleaning needs. What does that mean? Well, the way the kit is designed is a testament to ingenuity. The outer shell of the kit/spraying bottle consists of a black microfiber coating. This coating is then used to clean your tablet’s screen.

We’d call the shape a rounded hexagon, for lack of a better word. What matters is that it is designed in such a way that you gain access to a large surface area of the microfiber cloth, which lets you clean larger displays with ease.

The spray is present inside the kit and is sprayed out by a gentle push of the top end of the cleaning kit. From my testing, the nozzle of the spray is designed so that it is evenly spread out when applied. 

Here’s a quick idea of how many sprays you need for your device:

Device NameSprays Needed
iPhone 13 Pro Max1
iPad M1 12.9 inches2-3
Gaming Laptop 17 inches3-4

You can also get an idea of how much of the fluid remains by looking at the bottom of the kit. We couldn’t really estimate the volume of liquid contained in the kit due to its irregular shape. However, it should last you for a long while, given that you don’t constantly smudge your devices up. 

The only issue I have with the kit’s design is that they should’ve included a micro-fiber cloth of the same material as the kit as well. Some surfaces are curved, and they can’t be cleaned with a flat edge. 

Cleaning Process

I am a big fan of the Paperlike cleaning kit. Not exactly sure of what fluid they used. But, it is odorless and seems to work on any surface. To get an idea of the extent of how well the cleaning kit works, I used three very different devices.

Firstly, I tried the most obvious option, an iPhone 11 with a simple glass protector applied to it. Here’s a quick look at the before and after.

As you can see, the cleaning kit removed all smudges and fingerprints on the device while also ensuring that the protector wasn’t damaged in any way or form.

Next, I removed a harder surface to clean, a Samsung Galaxy Flip 3. This screen isn’t made of glass. Instead, it uses foldable plastic. So, I had to be extremely gentle with the cleaning so as not to ruin the phone in the process completely.

Needless to say, the results turned out pretty good, and I was satisfied with the process. You can’t really clean the crease properly as that would mean applying more force which can harm the display. So, maybe a microfiber cloth for that part would do.

Lastly, I took out an old dusty Lenovo gaming laptop stored on my shelf for a few years now. This laptop was filled with dust, grime, smudges, and fingerprints. You name it. So, it is the ultimate test for this cleaning kit.

Well, what do you know? The cleaning kit worked well here! I was surprised by the fact that it only took 3-4 sprays and a few wipes, and the screen looked as good as new. The kit itself was a bit dirty after this cleaning session. But, a few wipes and it was good to go.

Is The Paperlike Cleaning Kit Worth It?

Yes, the Paperlike Cleaning Kit is definitely worth it, especially for a professional or a traveler. You see, when you are moving around, carrying around a bottle of a glass cleaner alongside a microfiber cloth is very impractical.

But, the main premise of this Cleaning kit is the fact that it is extremely portable and convenient. So, you’ll be able to make the most out of your touchscreen tablet or even a large laptop (as we’ve identified ourselves.)

So, get this particular kit, and clean away! I know that I spent the better part of a day cleaning almost every device in the office. Fun.

We also recommend getting a Paperlike screen protector, which helps protect your device and makes it feel more like paper.
