Cleaning ipod Lens

I just read a good article about cleaning your ipod lens that are heavily scratched. If you use a product called brasso and rub lightly with a very soft cloth it will eventually take off a layer of the lens and make it like new. You have to rub for like 30 minutes though.

yeah, there were a lot of discussions about this when the nano came out. Brasso works well.

Can't say I've ever heard anyone call it an iPod "lens" though.

Brasso's great, but be really careful with how you get the residue off. The plastic on the iPod scratches so easy that you'd better use a high-qual cloth like iClear or something else microfiber-ish.

The iPod Lounge has a great thread about users experiences in removing scratches with brasso and other products:
