I can't say these wipes are the most wonderful things I've ever encountered. They simply fill a niche. One needs *something* to clean LCD's and glass cleaner is right out. Considering LCD screens don't attract the dust and lint like its statically-charged CRT predecessor, one doesn't need to clean them as often. That, in itself, doesn't lend itself to this kind of dispenser system. Like others have pointed out, by the time you need the next wipe, they're already drying out. A better system would have been individually sealed wipes, or at least a flat-pack peal-apart system. With this kind of dispenser, the next wipe to be used is getting the most exposure to air while it's in the queue for next-use. Incidentally, the workaround I've used to combat the dry-out issue, is to occasionally add about a tablespoon or two of clean water to the bottle. Obviously that's going to dilute their "formula", but (at least in *my* case) it's not like there's a major cleaning job to do, and I've not noticed any streaking or other ill effects.
