It's not just for PowerBooks any more

OK, it's not "pitting", but then again, I use an iBook G4. The area under my left palm (which I rest much more than I rest my right hand) has an ugly, kinda dirty splotch. Soapy water doesn't remove it. It must have something to do with the plastic, because my iBook G3 didn't get the splotch after two years of constant use, and I had this splotch in about two months.

(No pictures, you don't really need to see a splotch to know its a splotch...)


  • Use a nice clean eraser to rub it off.
    That's what I did. Works.

  • actually, some vinegar based windex on a soft cloth will clean it up.

  • I have 100 something iBooks in my rental department. I have found that the Goo Gone Spray Gel with the FRESH CITRIS SCENT does a great job of cleaning up the gunk that appears on those darn white cased ibooks. I have been doing this for 6 months no problem.

  • This is a really annoying problem.
    I've only had my new iBook 14" for one week, when the first "sweat spots" appeared. It looks really old and used. Whereas my older G3 iBook still looks pristine with its silver finish. Although I have been using it intensively for two years. Well if you compare those two, you see, why the new ones are cheaper.

    I'll try that tip with the eraser. Maybe I can find something like that goo gone spray in Germany. But I am extremely cautious with chemical cleaners on plastic since I ruined my Stereo with Orange Oil.
