Hi guys ,

I installed a Nillkin screen protector on my phone yesterday but I noticed that there a tiny scratch or a scuff mark on one side , its either on glass or on film , Was wondering can Nillkin screen protectors be re-installed ?

Can I just take it off , wash it with warm soapy water and re apply it , will it work ?

I've failed to do so, otoh if you've got time and patience to soak in soapy water to dissolve the adhesive and try it might work. I'd be interested in your experience

Word of caution, have a cheapo plastic protector on hand for if the experiment does not go well.

I washed my LG G2 tempered glass screen protector, iloome flex twice and it works great. but use bottled water, tap water might cause water spots when dried.

don't know if it works with nillkins. it's very difficult not to catch dust particle while drying. or use thick framed case to cover the scuffs if it's on the edge

I've removed, reinstalled mime glass before. Wash it with soap and water, rinse it and stick it wet. Push out any bubbles let it sit for 20 minutes or so to dry

I washed my glass protector in soapy, warm water, blew off the water bubbles with canned air, then reapplied. Stuck great, no issues.
