    The Black film on White MacBook
    I'm sure most of you have heard of this weird black stuff forming on the keyboard's of MacBook's and mine is beginning to do just that. I've only had the MacBook for about a month and I can already see the beginning signs of black spots forming. What can I do to stop this before it really becomes a problem?

    I've heard that the Magic Eraser's from Mr. Clean will do a good job. Is that something I should use?

    Thanks,
    Jordon.

    Yeah, I have dirt, fluff, dust, sneeze, food and sticky children's finger prints all over but that's just crud more than a film.

    Yes, I've read several threads about stains and marks on white MacBooks. I've also heard very positive things about Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. I'd just recommend you try it on an inconspicuous spot before you get too crazy with it, as Magic Eraser is a form of abrasive.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
