Cool Best Skins Ever - Squeegee Alternative

Please Login to Remove!

Hey, I ordered a BSE for my 8100 but after reading some reviews I found that the debit/ credit card (as the instructions suggest to use to squeese the bubbles out) can cause a "orange peel" effect.
I know that the Invisible Shield comes with a custom rubber card to do this but can anyone think of any alternative for the credit card ?

You can get a rubber one used for body work, usually from an auto parts store.

The material itself makes the orange peel finish. Not even visible when the screen backlight is on though.

I didn't use anything to squeegee and got no bubbles. I used them on my Curve and ipod.
