    This is a basic kit, but very useful if you are going to re-mount and scann slides. I had some very old slides and it cleaned smudges without scratching and eliminated all the dust. I recommend re-mounting, though, for old slides.

    Purchased product to clean flatbed scanner glass (as shown in the picture on product's package). Evidently, even Kinetronics does not believe that it is fully effective, as they also sell the Digital Scanner Glass Cleaning Kit (same cloth + alcohol) The "Tiger Cloth" - 100% Polyester fiber is marked "Use Dry", yet the instructions for the glass cleaning kit says to apply cleaner to glass a wipe.

                This kit comes with an ample sized cloth for cleaning the scanner glass and the all important brush for film dusting prior to scanning. Basically you can't scan without it. I also have a compressed air canister as an addendum, for those hard to get corners of mounted slides.

                              I use the scanner cleaner to clean my scanner (big shock) which I use to scan 8x10 negatives. The scanner cleaner is an anti static cloth and an anti static brush. Unless you have a fingerprint on your negative - seems like canned air works just as well and is much cheaper.

                                The little brush is a perfect size for 35mm negatives and I just blew it off with a rocket blower between negatives. The cloth did a great job of getting dust and cat hairs off the flatbed. Worked really well at minimzing dust and fibers (and cat hairs) on the scans.

                                      This is a basic kit, but very useful if you are going to re-mount and scann slides. I had some very old slides and it cleaned smudges without scratching and eliminated all the dust. I recommend re-mounting, though, for old slides.
