My friend just gave me a Speck Products Skin Tight iPod case. He said that he didn't like it because it got dirty really (i.e. pocket lint) quickly. Is there any way to prevent this from happening? Once it happens, what is the best (easiest/cheapest/fastest) way to clean it? Someone once mentioned on another forum that tape worked best but that you could also wash it... what do you use to wash it?

I use an iSkin which I assume is similar. It doesn't get dirty too fast. As for cleaning, since mine is made of silicone I just clean it with soap and water. 2 minutes later, all is good

I rarely ever clean it....maybe every few months. It doesn't really get dirty fast.
