Sick of smudges on your screen? Get a candle Who would have guessed that the solution to one of the biggest problems for a technophile would be simple candle soot?

Simply put, by making the screens on your mobile devices dirty with soot, you can keep them from smudged with fingerprints. Of course the process to make this happen is much more scientific then slapping a pile of soot on your device, so please don’t be rushing for your fireplace.
