Quick Tip: Protect Your iPad Screen from Messy Hands!

it's easy to protect your iPad from students with slimy hands

Working with preschoolers and early elementary aged-students, there are always those certain few blessings who constantly have a mess on their hands. Whether it's from digging for gold in their nose, or being sick with a cough...When those gooey fingers head toward that iPad screen, this is me (on the inside):


Time is precious and we can't pause to wash hands after every nose swipe. So here's an easy tip for keeping your screen safe from slime:


Slip it in a 3-ring binder that has a protective sleeve on the cover!


The iPad is still sensitive to touch, and it's easy to clean the binder with cleaner when finished.


Plus, the iPad is now tilted at an angle, making for easy viewing and use.

I try to take Vitamin C every morning and wash my hands religiously.

  1. One of my coworkers swears by Zicam and so far this cold season it has kept me healthy. Either that or my flu shot anyway...

    1. I didn't get a flu shot...so far so good other than normal colds. Never tried Zicam *mental note*

  2. This is an awesome idea for all populations! I always worry about using harsh cleaners to sanitize my iPad between patients. I haven't used it as much as I'd like for this reason. Problem solved! Thanks!

  4. This is such a great idea- much better than buying an expensive OtterBox like I did!

    1. OtterBox definitely has its place too though! This just protects from messy hands, but the iPad would still be at risk of cracks from a fall.
