Colocolo Tablet Cleaner Rolls iPads Clean

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  September 19, 2012

Do you constantly get greasy fingerprints all over the screen of your shiny glass tablet? If you’re like me, you probably just wipe it off with your shirt sleeve or maybe an eyeglass cleaning cloth. But if you’re looking for something that’s designed specifically for the task, then check out the Colocolo tablet cleaner.


Looking like one of those masking tape lint rollers your use to remove pet hair, or maybe a Schticky, you roll the Colocolo across the screen of your tablet to remove dirt, grime and fingerprints. The sticky tape surface on the Colocolo is said to work for about 500 cleanings before you need to buy a refill, and is specially designed to mop up oils from fingerprints.


If your shirt sleeve isn’t doing the trick, you can order the Colocolo over at Gizmine for $29.99(USD), though if you happen to live in Japan, it can be had for ¥1260 ($16 USD), and refills sell for ¥525 (~$7 USD). It comes in three colors, white, black and pink, making you wonder why all lint rollers don’t offer color choices.

A colocolo, by the way, is a small spotted and striped cat native to the west Andean slope in central and northern Chile, so the name makes perfect sense, no? Not unless there’s a cat included in the box that’ll lick your tablet’s screen clean.
