Screen puffs

Written by Gail Bjork

Though promoted to clean the LCD screens of cell phones, these tiny cleaners work great for digital camera screens too.

The screen puff is a tiny, puffy pillow-shaped accessory, which is promoted to clean the LCD screens of cell phones. But, hey, it works great for digital camera screens too.

I have a screen puff for each of my small compact digital cameras. They are small and compress enough to fit into a pouch right along with the camera.

A gray one is pictured attached to my ultracompact Canon SD700.
