out damned spot out i say

so...either i'm a really dirty girl, or macbook pros actually have a flaw. i refuse to believe the latter, so i'll assume i'm just dirty.

does anyone have a solution for the palm stains? i've tried nail polish remover...that helps only a little bit. i'm open to suggestions.

is it a macbook, or pro? just making sure...i've never heard of discoloration on the pros, but with the regular macbook, it's a well documented problem with the first generation, and apple will replace the case on it.

i wouldn't put nail polish remover on the case though because it's abrasive, and might damage the case in the long run...

the mr. clean magic erasers. but, don't get them too wet, or clean the screen with them...just a light rubbing should clean it well.


Found a pic of the flaking:

I'm in charge of laptop diagnostics at work and part of my service is doing a cleaning of the laptop. After I blow out all the dust and shit, I clean the whole thing with special wipes made for laptops and LCDs. They're basically very soft, anti-static baby wipes (special fibers that won't scratch) pre-wetted with isopropyl alcohol. I try not to scrub at the touchpads and palm marks b/c I don't want to damage the finish or wear it down more, but I just go over it lightly with clean wipes until the wipes come out clean or I can't get anything else off. Once I had this girl's white Mac and I swear she was using Photobooth as a mirror for applying her powdered blush and bronzer. Her palm marks were brick red.

This is exactly what I use, but I'm not sure where to get them (this link was from Amazon) since our receptionist orders them for me:
