    I was very frustrated after trying to apply the Skinomi 2x. I decided to say F*** IT and go naked on the front.

    I know the screen protectors your talking about. I use them cause they are cheaper then others. To get rid of the particles. Use a micro fiber cloth, do the best you can to the screen. Then rinse off the screen protector sticky side (side that adheres to the screen) under water. Rinse of all the dust, while its still wet, place it on the screen.and Squeegee the water out. Small bubbles should vanish. I know it doesn't say to use water on these but it works a heck of alot better with the water. Also try doing it in the bathroom after the hot shower has been running for a while. The steam in the area will weigh the dust particles out of the air.

    Do it in a humidified room, i.e. after you take a hot shower. The moisture causes dust particles to take on some moisture and become heavier, thus they go down to the surfaces, and are not floating anymore in the air, kinda what happens after it rains, why the air just looks so much more crisp. If you do find particles under, use some scotch tape to remove them. Just dab the stick side where the particle is light and pull off and it should come off with the scotch tape.

    I've installed alot of these protectors and what I found works all the time are:

    - Scotch Tape
    - Compressed Air
    - Credit card or flat card
    - Heck of alot of patience

    First I spray the screen with the compressed air and make sure there is no dust anywhere. I usually do not remove the top layer protection (so when you wipe the bubbles with the card, it doesn't scratch the surface) and make sure the screen side is laid down incrementally from one side to the other. I would use tape to lift the protector from the corners and use another piece of tape to remove any dust from under the screen. It might take awhile but I have had perfect installs every time.
