Default Anyone way to get dust out under screen protector?

Well the dust under the screen protector is creating like 2 air bubbles, is there anyway to get the dust out of the screen protector?

I don't know if you can do this with all brands but with my steinheil I just put tape on a corner and it lifts the protector right up. Then just dab the dust with tape and it will lift it right off.

yup, that's what I did!

I'd try it in a steamy bathroom because people have said the steam pushes the dust down so you won't get *more* dust under your screen when you lift it up.

you can also pull it off completely and clean it. I run hot water on mine and wipe and then put it on. Put it on when it's damp too and just smooth out the air bubbles.

I would be afraid that pulling it off completely and putting water on it would lose the stickiness but I could be wrong. Just pick up the corner with tape and dab the dust with another piece and ur good to go. Worked perfect for me and it got my bubble out by my trackpad

no it won't. It is a static protector. I have pulled mine off at least 20 times, between the anti-fingerprint and crystal clear I was testing. Just put scotch tape on the corner to pull it off. Don't try and pry it with your finger nail or it will mess it up. I also put it on still damp because if you dry it with anything it will get dust on it. I just shake most of the water off and then place it on the incredible. Then I use my fingers to press out the air and water bubbles. Those card squeegee things always scratch the protector when I try and use them.

The TAPE WORKS like a charm. Beautifully!
I have a Belkin iPad 2 screen protector. i got dust all around it. Lifting the corners with tape worked, and a made another piece into a grabby ball, which plucked the dust off super easy.

Do not rub a speck of dust in so hard that it scratches the adhesive side of your cover. That ruins it!!

Water underneath or washing Does also work, however if you have scratched or indented the adhesiveness, it will look silly. I do not suggest this method, because i have had it leave ugly bubbles. I suggest your use the TAPE method instead!

Good Luck!!!!!!
