    My power support screen protectors have dust on the 'sticky' side that I would like to clean off so that I can use them again. However, I have found it nearly impossible to clean anything off of that side. Is there a way to completely clean the 'sticky' side?

    This worked for me. First I put a large piece of packing tape on the sticky side and then peeled it off to remove the small dust and hairs. Then I washed it off with water thouroghly rubbing the sticky side with my fingers. Lastly I placed the film sticky side down on glossy paper to dry, wax paper could possibly work to. It took a few tries before I got it right mostly because I wasn't patient enough to let it dry completly, I eventually let it dry overnight. Hope this helps, good luck I know it can be a real pain getting the films on without any dust but once you do its worth it.

    the thing that worked best for me was going back to the apple store and buy another set. :D

    Seriously, I tried the tape thing with water and it just failed, it looked horrible for me. Its really hard, try taking hair off of duct tape; nearly impossible.

    the thing that worked best for me, that is a little better than the above post is sending an email to power support.

    i told em both my films were dusty, sent them the films and reciept and got new ones in about 3 weeks.

    (i guess california to michigan takes a long time using stamps)

    I just added water to it and put it on the phone while wet. The next day I lifted it up a little to remove the moisture and voila!

    That doesn't sound like too bad of an idea.

    I emailed them about it and they just said use tape to get any dust off.

    I know this is an old thread but I've got the same problem. I have one tiny piece of lint on the shield.

    What kind of tape should I use, like the thick clear packing tape?

    One piece of scotch tape to juuuust lift the side of the shield that has the lint on it

    Slide another one sticky side up to take off the lint

    I live with four cats and two iPhones, I've done this once or twice ;)
