The Qmadix Smudge Free Cleaning Foam cost $19.99. It's a dry foam that claims to clean your plasma, LED, and LCD screens.
As much time as we spend on computers these days, a dirty screen can be annoying. We took Qmadix Smudge Free Cleaning Foam to the Chiphead Computer Solutions crew and they had some interesting observations.
The foam will clean your screen. There is no problem with the Qmadix foam's performance. However, the guys at Chiphead demonstrated you can clean your screens with one-part alcohol and one-part water just as good. They did say it's isopropyl alcohol and not ethyl alcohol.
Also, Qmadix Smudge Free Cleaning Foam is very flammable and there is nothing on the packaging to indicate that. The packaging says if the product is ingested, to call Poision Control immediately. But there isn't anything on the packaging that indicates what is in the foam that is toxic so you can tell Poision Control.
We did ask the company for an explanation, or clarification, on those two issues. They said thanks for pointing it out and they would get back to us. As soon as they do, we will update this story.
Since the product does do what it says it will do, I did not rate it a Dud. But with the water/alcohol mix you can do at home for pennies, I decided to rate the Qmadix Smudge Free Cleaning Foam Debatable.
As soon as the company gets us more information on the ingredients and the flammability issue, we will get back to you!
