thats really neat. I could use that to clean the slew of MX focusing screens I have.
I use it for nearly everything, but mostly bicycle parts especially chains. But I have also used it to clean my wife's jewelery and other small parts that I did not want to rub with a rag or sponge.

my jinfinance screen was very sticky after removing the protective film. it seemed to be a combination of adhesive residue and static cling which picked up dust particles and couldnt be cleaned using air or a lens brush; in fact these two methods actually introduced more dust to the screen.

i ended up carefully soaking it in "glass plus" cleaner to release the adhesive and then rinsed it under filtered water to remove the cleaning product. blowing it with compressed air got it nice and dry and it installed with not a single visible speck of dust.

good luck.
I also think static is a lot of the problem. The problem is to do any of these things without scratching the matte surface. It is extremely delicate. The product worked quite well other than being dirty, and I am mulling another $35 try.
