OptiMist Prime Overview and Usage

ShaggyMAC calls OptiMist Prime an advanced, molecular level formula, engineered to safely clean the most sensitive optical surfaces without streaks or haze. Okay, so that sounds like a nice pile of marketing bull right? But they go on to make a solid argument. The clear formula does not include any alcohol, detergents, vinegar, dyes, ammonias, acids, phosphates, chlorides or caustics. Not that other cleaners all include one or some of these items, but this one doesn’t and in an industry where ingredients are not on the bottle, that’s good to know.

Using OptiMist Prime is pretty straightforward. Aim and spray, then wipe clean with microfiber cloth. Of course ShaggyMAC sells cloths as well; though any works fine should you already have one. With this product I found less is more. It really doesn’t take much to get your standard assortment of dust, grime, sneezes, or whatever off the display. It’s also easier to clean with less liquid, so I recommend working up, rather than using too much to start with.

I tested on a few notebooks, PDAs, LCD panels and the LCD television in our office. The OptiMist Prime worked well on each surface, without streaking, something that not all cleaning products can claim. I also used it on my notebook’s lid, keyboard and other surfaces to get off the day-to-day build-up. Again the cleaner did a great job.


If you want a quality cleaning solution that won’t streak or damage delicate optical surfaces, look no further than OptiMist Prime. At $9.99 for 5 ounce bottle, it’s not cheap, but the quality is well worth it and while I don’t know how many sprays are in each bottle, my guess is there are nearly a thousand, so it’s going to last a long time.
