WikiHow's Guide on How to apply a screen protector: 

Things You'll Need

  • A good quality screen protector 
  • A microfiber cloth (included with our screen protectors)
  • A soft cloth 
  • A credit card or similar to remove air bubbles
  • At least 10 minutes
  • Patience
1) Use any method to get steam in a room. Running a hot shower works well, which fills the room with steam. There will be less dust in the air than usual, this is the best time to apply the screen protector. Only bring your device after the steam has subsided.

7) Finished.
all done
  • This is best done after removing the factory packaging.
  • Keep the sticky side of the screen protector down, dust is less likely to get stuck when you're applying it.
  • Apply the screen protector as slowly and carefully as possible. There's nothing worse than a shaking hand when doing this.
  • Don't touch the sticky part of the screen protector. Handle it like you would CDs (i.e. without touching the bottom).
  • Alternatively, you can stick a piece of tape on the side of the screen protector (non-sticky side) to make it easier to place.
  • By putting a drop of soap water on the screen before applying the screen protector, you can make it easier to remove bubbles. Just be careful not to apply too much.
  • Do not get frustrated.
  • Dust is everywhere. If you take too long it will land on your screen.
