    Agreed, although a scotch ape likely would cause significant damage.

    Then you're lucky.

    Lol Am not planning to do it ever. Like cleaning the screen with scotch tape ... :D in the long term, if somebody does it, it might, right?

    I would be more worried about it leaving a gummy residue from the Glue on the Tape.

    Try using a Microfiber cloth next time.

    Also you should go in the bathroom turn on the shower to hot and let it steam up the bathroom.

    The super humidity will drop any dust out of the Air.

    I don't know if it will remove the coating but consider this, its a coating that is not impregnated in the glass, I would be wary of doing anything that could impact it, like tape. Why not use a microfiber cloth?
