    I just exchanged my phone and the lady took it off my old phone and said they can be washed and reused. I never knew that.

    So I washed it and set it out to try. It dried and it's sticky again, but it's full of water spots. So I wash it again and this time try to dry it. I tried paper towels and three different towels. Each got it nice and dry, but left tons of lint. I can't put that shit on the screen-- it would drive me crazy.

    Anyone ever reuse their film protectors?

    Never reused them. Still have the same Bodyguardz on my iPhone for the past year plus and it's still looking great.

    what happens if you wash it, and then apply it slightly moist - but squeegee out the excess water?

    May want to try to rinse it in de-ionized water which should keep water spots from appearing.

    Almost easier to just buy a new one.

    I should order bodyguards. I just hate doing the corners.

    you can wash it with soap and distilled water and reapply it just fine. But it would be much better just to get a new one.
