What is it?

Designed for hard-to clean tech devices, this gel helps remove dust and crumbs from PC keyboards, cameras, printers, telephones, calculators, speakers, air conditioners, TVs and other small items.

Made from lemon-scented biodegradable gel, simply knead the cleaner to soften it before gently pressing it into tough to clean cracks and crevices anywhere in your home or office.

Flexible and moldable, it also gets into hard-to-clean crevices of the car including air vents, steering wheels, console panel, storage bins, cup holder, door handles and dashboards to pick up dirt, crumbs, dust and debris, all without drying time or leaving streaks and residue.

How does it work?

It's easy to use! Simply grab the gel and press it against a tainted surface and pull back slowly to remove any dirt. When you're finished cleaning, put it back into its container and keep in a cool place like the glove compartment for safekeeping.

Unlike some other cleaning gels, this one cannot be washed to remove the buildup of dust and dirt, but it can be reused again and again until its colour begins to darken, at which point it will need to be replaced.

'Grabs everything it touches'

Backed by nearly 50,000 reviews and a 4-star rating, shoppers say this bestseller does what it promises — and it even impresses "clean freaks." It's been called "perfect for cleaning a variety of electronics," since it can be used on so many different surfaces.

Reviewers have shared that this gel "works wonderfully" for cleaning hard to reach areas such as keyboards and car interiors. Shoppers have also been impressed by its longevity, as "a little bit of it goes a long way."

Another shared that it "grabs everything it touches when cleaning" without leaving a sticky residue.

"I was shocked by how much this product picked up," raved one reviewer.

However, some shoppers do say that one downside is it can't be rinsed off or washed — but there's "very little anyone can do about that" considering the nature of the product.

The verdict

At its sale price of $12, you can't go wrong with this super-popular cleaning gel — however, you'll want to keep in mind that while it works well, some shoppers do caution that it doesn't have an unlimited lifetime due to the fact that it can't be rinsed.
