    From experience... by removing and re-applying the same screen protector... all you're going to do is pick up more dust before re-applying. It's also almost impossible to get rid of dust that's stuck to the adhesive side of the screen protector.

    You should just trash it and put a new one on. Good luck! :)

    So not true. I've removed and reapplied a number of Steinheil films. Tape works well at getting the dust off.

    Only very rarely will this work. Just buy a new one.

    No reason to throw it away and waste money if it is not damaged. Just stick it back to some wax paper or the little plastic sleeve in the package and when its time to reuse it just do it as a wet install. Run it under some water with a little soap to clean it off and then reapply. I tend to get the SP on perfect this time compared to when it hasn't been used yet.
