Greg (and SandraL), picked up micro fiber towels and today used with Windex. Huge difference, thanks to both of you!!!

Excellent, thought they might be a solution. Good to know since our Formica is basically black. The micro fiber would probably work just dry as well.

Black Snap Caps

Ordered the black snap caps and got them installed today. Before and after pics below. Total cost with shipping for 15 large was $4.99. They actually sent a bag of 25 so got a bit extra if anyone needs some at Quartzsite just ask.

I just popped mine off and spray-painted them black. Worked for me!

Greg, where did you get them? I lost one of my brown ones and am not sure whether to call them screw covers.
