Removing the screen will cause your device to be less water-resistant.

There are many ways to remove the adhesive from the screen. You could use a heatgun, blow dryer, or the iOpener. We used an iOpener.

We recommend that you clean your microwave before proceeding, as any nasty gunk on the bottom may end up stuck to the iOpener.

Place the iOpener in the center of the microwave.

For carousel microwaves: Make sure the plate spins freely, if your iOpener gets stuck it may overheat and burn.

If you have not used your iOpener for some time, or this is the first time you are using the iOpener, microwave it wrapped in a damp paper towel. This will prevent it from burning if it is overheated.
