Searching the board cleans them magically...a lot like the magic eraser.

I agree, I also have the Moshi PalmGuards, I've had them on since Feb. and they still look great. I went with them over the more popular Marware ones because I didn't like the large Marware logo...

I found that waiting till they crack and taking them back to Apple for a repair worked quite well !!

Two out of our three macbooks have cracked along the palm rest edge and been replaced under warranty !

Experienced computer user, applications programmer and component level service engineer but came to the Apple platform with intro of intel!. Pro-photographer and director of electronics company.

As for the Mr Clean Magic Erasers, just use the normal ones. Not the ones that foam up. I believe there is two types.
