    Unhappy macbook + 16 mth old son + inkstamp= help req
    ok,
    So I was daft enough to leave my son in the same room as the wifes macbook (white) and a inkstamp,

    end result is a shiny white macbook with my car registration all over the keys, mouse pad and the body.

    Funny, yes, alittle

    amused, no the wife is not

    So which of you gurus knows the best ways to clean up a macbook?

    One way I found to remove smudges, black spots, and other nasty goo from the surface of the MacBook, is to use the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Works wonders. Just make sure water does not get under the keys. Hope that helps!

    Those things are amazing, don't know about ink on white plastic though..

    Try a little rubbing alcohol on an inconspicuous place. Should remove the ink, but do test to see if it harms the finish (shouldn't, but I have never tried it so can't say for sure)
