I have a new iBook G4 that I bought last month that recieved fairly heavy use until I got my Shuttle AMD desktop finished. Now I just use it for schoolwork and other important stuff that cant be trusted to Windows.
Anyways, during that heavy use, the palmrests got very dirty, does anybody know how I can get them clean again?
Being that it doesnt receive as much use anymore I want to try to get it looking brand new again.
Thank you so much!

Rubbing alcohol, it works like a charm!

I use the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and it works a charm!

You can use it on the entire iBook surface and it really brightens it up - mine looks as good as new again.

You can also use it on the keyboard which is useful...

Hey, I bought this, but before I use it, I was wondering: Is this bleach?

On what parts of the iBook(specifically ) did you successfully use it on?

Thanks,
AJW

Update: After researching Mr. Clean, it does not have bleach in it.

MR CLEAN MAGIC ERASER DUO IS GOD!! It cleaned my entire iBook REALLY well!
