    ok well, if you are very worried about keeping your ipod touch in tip-top shape, you most likely have it in a case. still, you probably know that dust can get in between your case and your ipod and cause some serious damage! well, you probably clean it regularly, right??

    well, if you DONT wanna worry about cleaning and all of that good stuff, this is for you:

    materials:
    and ipod touch/iphone with a opaque/translucent case
    a cleaning cloth
    saran wrap big enough to cover the back of your ipod about 3-4 times
    a very sharp knife
    a piece of cardboard to do this on

    directions:
    get your cardboard ready and place your ipod face-down on it
    clean the back well
    take your saran wrap and stretch it across the back
    it should stick fairly well and in about 5 minutes you should be able to work out most of the bubbles and creases
    take your knife and cut around your ipod, keeping it on the cardboard and being careful not to touch your ipod
    now there should still be some excess, but dont worry just rip it off with you fingers

    put your ipod back in its case and never worry again!!

    ratings:
    ease of use: 7/10
    durability: 4/10--it can take some fingernail scratches and hould be perfect for dust
    looks: 8/10 i'd say you could even use this without a case if you put it on well


    other thoughts: if you really dont care about how it looks because you can't see anything through your case, dont worry about perfection cuz it'll still protect it as long as the back's covered.


    C&C welcome--please comment, pics attached were not amazing since i put it on quickly.

    PS, the scratches were on the saran wrap...idk how they got there but they were there before i put it on.

    well,about the front, I think that if you're good enough you could stretch it but it would prolly rip easily and you would have to replace it often. also since it's not as tough as the actual screen it would rip before it actually protects it at all.

    It would be pointless on the screen. Anything it would protect the screen from wouldn't even damage it at all.
