New Dust-Off® LapPad™ Helps Prevent Laptop Damage

LapPad protects laptop screens and keeps them dust-and smudge free.

Branchburg, NJ (September 15, 2006) – As laptop sales worldwide continue to skyrocket, it’s important that consumers do what they can to protect their investments for the long run. To help laptop owners care for their computers, Falcon Safety Products, manufacturer of the Dust-Off brand of consumer electronics cleaning solutions, has introduced the essential accessory for any laptop computer – the LapPad™.

“Each time consumers close their laptops, they put their computer screens at risk,” said Ken Newman, Director of Marketing for Falcon Safety Products. “While it’s an issue rarely thought of by laptop owners, damage does happen. When closed, the laptop keyboard can actually dent the computer screen and dust or dirt that collected on the keys could scratch the delicate surface. By utilizing the LapPad and inserting it before closing their laptops, consumers have the ability to extend the life of their screens and prevent unsightly damage,” concluded Newman.

The Dust-Off Micro-Fiber LapPad, which retails for $4.99, offers three versatile uses:

Prevents screen damage: When inserted between the keyboard and screen before closing the laptop, the LapPad can protect the screen from dirt accumulated on the keys and protects the screen from being “dented” when closed.

Prevents slippage: When placed underneath the laptop, the LapPad’s micro-fiber technology can keep computers from slipping when working on a smooth surface and protect the bottom from scratches.

Reusable cloth: The LapPad also serves as a reusable cloth for removing dust, dirt, smudges and grime from laptops without the use of harsh chemicals or abrasives. For extended use, the LapPad can be hand washed.

The Dust-Off Micro-Fiber LapPad can be found in retail stores carrying the Dust-Off brand or online at www.dust-off.com.
