Acme Sponge and Chamois Community Outreach

As an industry leader in leather chamois and sea sponge production, Acme Sponge and Chamois Co remains committed to helping ensure healthy and sustainable fisheries, consumer protections and to giving back to the community. Toward those ends, our officers are active in organizations such as Florida Sea Grant, The National Institute of Weights and Measures and the Sponge and Chamois Institute. In addition we support our nation’s first responders by providing some of those in need with Sponges and Chamois to help keep critical equipment clean and maintained. We support educational programs related to aquaculture and are involved with our local Tarpon Springs community.

Natural Leather Chamois for Cleaning Electronics

Cleaning dust, fingerprints and smudges from electronics without scratching the delicate displays can be a challenge. Liquids, of any kind, and electronics are dangerous when combined, and sensitive electronics can easily be damaged or even destroyed.

Cleaning Electronics with a Natural Leather Chamois

A dry (or completely wrung out) natural leather chamois is a safe and effective means of cleaning electronic devices, without the risk of damaging them. A chamois can be to remove dust, grime, smudges, and fingerprints from all types of electronics. Chamois are ideal for cleaning:

• Desktop Computer Cases and Peripherals
• Tablet Computer Screens and Cases
• Cell Phone Screens
• Game Consoles
• DVD/Blue Ray Players
• Stereo Components
• Camera Lenses and Optics

Cleaning Electronics with a Natural Leather Chamois

Almost all modern monitors or LCD screens (flat-screen TVs, computer monitors and various other types of displays) today are made of a plastic which is much softer than glass. These types of plastic are easily etched or scratched by using cleaning cloths or chemicals that are too harsh. These types of TVs, monitors or screens should never be cleaned with any product that contains wood fiber. Wood fiber based products include paper towels, Kleenex, toilet paper, etc. No matter how “soft” these types of cleaning products may feel, they will mar or scratch the plastic over time and cause it to appear “cloudy.”

Cleaning Without Chemicals Using a Natural Leather Chamois

Certain cleaning chemicals (including Windex, ammonia, alcohol, vinegar, or any other oxidizing or acidic cleaning agent) should never be used to clean flat screen TVs or computer screens. These types of chemicals will “etch” (or scratch) the plastic and/or oxidize quickly leaving the surface “cloudy”.
Use only agents specially formulated for cleaning and natural materials, such as a genuine leather chamois, to safely clean these delicate plastic surfaces. And chemicals should only be used when the screen cannot be cleaned any other way. A natural leather chamois is a safe and effective tool for cleaning electronics and delicate screens without the need for more chemicals in the home.
