My iPod Mini is stained.

During Winter / Spring, it rained a lot. I kept my iPod Mini tucked away in my coat pocket. But something about the coat getting wet made the dye from the coat's pocket fabric stuff stain my iPod! So now all the white parts, like the clickwheel and top and bottom where the ports are, are an ugly brownish/yellowish color.

Is there some way I can restore it to its white goodness? (Besides buying an iPod Nano, of course, which is what I should be doing anyway )

Try toothpaste. It leaves it with a nice fresh smell too.


I'm serious.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser...just don't wet it too much, make sure no water gets into the iPod.

It'd happened with the denim dye from my jeans, I just licked my finger and with some persistent rubbing it came off. You could try it.

yes, this worked for me too. maybe you could use WD-40? that may be overkill, though
