Default My fix for an Otterbox problem

Please Login to Remove!

I like the Otterbox case for my Storm. Good protection, but....I, as others have reported had the clear cover for the Otterbox sticking to, and leaving marks on the touchscreen of the Storm. Fixes included rubbing oil from your face on the screen so the two didn't stick together. I try to keep my screen clean, and tho this worked the fingerprints from smearing oil from my face onto the screen were apparent the clear cover of the Otterbox.

I have a small jar of a substance called Renaissance Wax. It is a museum quality colorless wax, I use it on metal finishes, and most recently on some ivory. I put a light coat of it on the inside of the Otterbox screen, and a light coat on the touch screen of the Storm. It buffs off, crystal clear, and after assembly, problem solved. I would guess that maybe other types of wax could be used for this too.
