Why have just a mundane, solid-color cloth to keep your trusty smartphone, tablet or even your eyeglasses clean, when you can have an ARTcloth instead?

I was really hoping to purchase the one based on Van Gogh’s Starry Night but it was sold out. Apparently, others had the same idea and took advantage of the sale going on at press time.

These are a compact 5.1″ x 7.1″ (or 13cm x 18cm) and can be placed over the screen before you close a case or cover to safekeeping (see the embedded video). The back side (the “soft side”) is the side you use for cleaning off smudges and other undesirables. The art side (the “silky side”) is for buffing. You can machine wash this in cold water and tumble dry on low heat.
