Clean imac G4 with glass cleaner??
 
I have an iMac G4 17" with sticker goop all around the outer bezel of the display can i use glass cleaner on this or goo gone or what? i dont think that glass cleaner would work because the bezel is plexy glass right?

any knowledgeable suggestions appreciated

I always like to start with the least aggressive cleaner first...which would be a paper towel moistened with warm water. Then I try adding a little soap...then I go with the glass cleaner.

If I use the glass cleaner...I work quickly...then I use a damp towel (with only water) to wipe off any residual glass cleaner (just in case).

It's a conservative approach which minimizes any nasty/undesirable reactions with the plastic.

Is there any other way that i could do it that you know of because the crap is being really stubborn and doesn't even want to come off with glass cleaner.

do you think goo gone is to abrasive?

Usually I don't like to use anything that contains acetone (found in nail polish remover). I'm also very careful with cleaners that contain alcohol or ammonia (which is found in most glass cleaners).

If I try a cleaner that I'm not sure of...it's best to test it in an inconspicuous area (to see if anything "funky" happens)...and that's when I use the damp towel to wipe immediately after...so no residual cleaner is left on the surface to continue any possible reaction.

As far as Goo-Gone. It's not that it's "abrasive" (abrasive has to do with friction or "grittiness")...it's if it has anything in it that may react with the plastic. I think that Goo-Gone would probably be ok...just have that damp paper towel to use to wipe the area off immediately after using the Goo-Gone (just in case).
