Stay away from Grove! (Grovemade)

Unless you want your iPad 2 and MacBook completely ruined from their skins. The company has even completely ignored the situation. So not only will their products ruin your expensive device, but they have the worst customer service and don't stand behind their product and claims.

This is impossible to remove unless I scrape it off with a lot of force and completely grind the aluminum.

Thumb resize.

Thanks for the heads up. I hope you're able to get the rest of the residue off.

Tried that and it didn't help at all which I though was very odd. I had to bring it to the Apple store for replacement.
