What a horrible little brush. If, while brushing, the handle accidentally scrapes your mat or acrylic, it will scuff it ... And I'm talking about light strokes, not heavy handed scrapes. Very disappointed. So be vigilant, especially when hinge mounting ... It will ruin your mat or scratch your acrylic.
I'm slowly digitizing 70 years worth of family slides and negatives and needed something for the few times so far that dust has stubbornly refused to depart from a frame. So far (about 1,000 slides in) this brush has kept me from having to try and "wash" one to get rid of something. I use "Dust Off", scan and then if there's something objectionable I brush and then spray again.
Ideal for cleaning lenses before using a microfiber cloth. It ensures you are not rubbing debris on the lens.
I'm in the process of scanning thousands of old photo negatives, and was looking for something to use to clean both the scanner and the film. This kit seemed to fit the bill perfectly. It's easy to use, and soft enough so it doesn't scratch the film or the scanner glass. Nor does it leave any residue behind. Unfortunately, it doesn't do a very good job of trapping the dust or keeping the dust from resettling back on the surface, so I feel like all I'm doing is pushing the dust around.
Does its job better than other brushes and is fairly priced.
If you own a devise like the Nook,Tablet, cell phone that all have a touch screen you will want to add a "screen saver" over the touch screen. Sounds simple enough, pull the screen off the plastic protective cover and apply to the screen, right ? Well, Mr. Static will be awakened as soon as the two are separated and every speck of dust, lint, cat/dog hair in the area will attach itself to both sides. The sticky side is the problem, you can't get it off. After ruining a $20 sheet for my new tablet I ordered a 2 1/2" StaticWisk and on the next protective cover, BINGO, perfect installation first try. Works on anything that is prone to collect static and the dust in the air. Now, if I can only remember where I put it ? Gitn' old ain't for sissies !
Touch screens on tablets, GPS, phones need "screen protectors" to keep finger prints and scratches off the sensitive screens. The protective covers attract dust and lint like magnets when their protective covers are pulled off prior to installation. The larger ones are a nightmare for the 10" screens. This brush worked like a charm, a few swipes over the non-sticky side and no more dust and lint !!! Its a money saver and headache stopper.
This anti-static brush is a big help when scanning 35mm slides and film. It's just the right size, and does a very good job of removing both dust and the static charge that attracts it. I like that it can be cleaned if it gets too grungy, and that it uses simple conductive fibers to do the ant-static work, rather than the radioactive technology that some other brushes use.
Just like the title says. Perfect for bits of lint and dust that resist blown air. I use it primarily for lenses and negatives. Other than touch-ups, it's a little small for use on scanner glass unless you're the patient type.
