Err, why is my iPod Touch greasy?

I am hygienic, honest. My hands are shiny clean at all times. So why is my iPod Touch so oily/greasy all the time (front and back)? And that little cloth doesn't help. Am I alone on this?

I washed my hands about 10 times a day when i had my ipod touch and its still greasy, a slightly moist kleenex rub down does wonders for the grease

And people say an iPod touch/iPhone stylus is a stupid idea...

Natural oils are always being secreted from your skin - you may not feel it, but it's there.

Someone is using your iPod Touch while you sleep!

Do you subconsciously hold it up to your head, hoping and believing that it's an iPhone? Do you use meatlovers pizzas for doilies? Are you schizophrenic with a hand cream dependancy? Did you wash it in New Improved Dawn, with the magic formula that makes grease disappear?

Reminds me of that time I was eating Cheesies while watching adult pay-per-view...

lol, have fun losing your touch wand.

Maybe you're just a very subtly greasy person.

Honestly my iPhone is greasy too, even when I don't use it often. ( damn you grease, you win again )
