I take my iPod everywhere with me and I use the little grey sleeve that came with it to keep it from harm, which it seems to do fine. I noticed today however, that the aforementioned sleeve has become pretty grubby. I tried rubbing it with some chemicals at work (I work in a print/design company, so we have lots of these!) but it just seemed to make it smeary!

Has anyone cleand their ipod case? what did you use?
thanks heaps n stuff Smile

Chemicals???? What kind????

To be honest, I don't use the case that much anymore. I bought the Crystal Film kit from Power Support and it protects my nano well. I did wash mine out with soapy water a few times and let it air dry. It seemed to clean it pretty well, but it got grubby again in no time. I swear they must be made out the same material as a car shammy cloth. Once you stain them, forget about it.

I've just applied the artwizz film cover to my 5g 20gb ipod. I got the set with the cleaning solution from the Apple store. It cost a bit more than I would really have liked but I am really pleased with the results. The cream cleaner polished all the scratches out and - more inportantly - the film went on really well so I dont' have to handle my ipod like eggs anymore!
plis its REALLY shinynewlooking now, bonus! Very Happy
