There are some unremovable staind on my macbook`s surface, near the trackpad. I`ve followed all the apple`s website recomendation (such a clean and dry cloth, non abrasive cleaning fluids, but none of these tricks were usefull and the stains still there. I don`t know what I should do to finish it out. Can some one help me?
Here are photos of these referred "bloody" stains.

Well, I don`t live in USA. Hence I can`t order liquid or fluid products abroad.
I there something else I can do?
Waiting responses.

I`ve tried the eraser. But it didn`t work it out on trackpad. The rest of surface seems more clean now.

I know it sounds extreme but it's worked for me. With iBooks and MacBooks.

Try a dab of mineral turpentine on a white cloth and rub the stained areas. You might need a few dabs. I then wipe down with isopropanol alcohol.

The smell disappears after about 15 mins.
