    Cleaning iBook G4 Palmrest


    I have a new iBook G4 that I bought last month that recieved fairly heavy use until I got my Shuttle AMD desktop finished. Now I just use it for schoolwork and other important stuff that cant be trusted to Windows.
    Anyways, during that heavy use, the palmrests got very dirty, does anybody know how I can get them clean again?
    Being that it doesnt receive as much use anymore I want to try to get it looking brand new again.
    Thank you so much!

    Rubbing alcohol, it works like a charm!

    use a spray cleaner called fantastik. It removed grease and ground in dirt fairly well. Just make sure you wipe off the residue with a clean damp cloth when you're finished.

    I use the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and it works a charm!

    You can use it on the entire iBook surface and it really brightens it up - mine looks as good as new again.

    You can also use it on the keyboard which is useful...

    Hey, I bought this, but before I use it, I was wondering: Is this bleach?

    On what parts of the iBook(specifically ) did you successfully use it on?

    Thanks,

    Being that i am the father of small children...I have baby wipes in abundance. The wipes have worked best of anything i have tried!

    Update: After researching Mr. Clean, it does not have bleach in it.

    MR CLEAN MAGIC ERASER DUO IS GOD!! It cleaned my entire iBook REALLY well!


    Aptmunich - you're the BEST!
