ok, so my iPod touch screen was getting grungy with fingerprints and u know what i mean. so i used paper towels, wet first then wiped it dry. but that gave it slight scratches, so stupid me decided to use CLEAN toilet paper that's wet to clean the screen and the little stands came off so i used paper towel again and then the sratches became visible and it looks terrible! and the back looks even worse!!! anything would be helpful!

I rather doubt that a paper towel gave it scratches. What I use is a lint-free cloth intended for computer screen and TV sets. If you use a cleaner, use something intended for computer/TV sets.. spray it on the cloth, not the iPod itself, then wipe it down. You can get a kit with the right cloth and cleaner at any electronics/computer shop.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Random-Person,
It was likely that it was scratched before you cleaned it. Cleaning off the finger grease patina has exposed the scratches. Paper towel/tissues particularly kitchen roll have small particles of wood chip and pulp in them which can act as abrasive on polished surfaces etc. Get a kit as lifeisabeach suggests and polish them out.

MOTM October 2012. These days normally happy with an occasional grumble.

Sodium Bicarb very sparingly with water and a lint free cloth (scrap of an old comfy tee shirt).
Mer Car polish and a cloth as above
Very mild toothpaste and a cloth as above

Any of these will polish clear acrylic and similar surfaces to the iPod to a fine detail but do not overdo it.
