    I've wiped mine down with a wet microfiber towel which really renews it, but can you put it under water?
    Also, anyone think there is something that could be applied to the case to make it less of a dirt magnet? but still keep the grippy texture? I think it;s basically rubber.
    I like it otherwise but it gets dirty and marked up fast.

    This case is indestructible. Everyone seems to hate it, but it is really for the price a great deal. I have used a little soap and water to wipe it down and to revitalize vie used armour all and that works great!

    yes, I'm serious, it's rubber, and microfiber is a plastic from petroleum.
    what? you think it's silk or something? sorry to shock:eek:
    I was wondering about the glues holding the flaps together.

    what does the armor-all do? make is shiny or streaky?
    ps-armor-all is not one of the best silicon products, there are better alternatives for car use etc.

    Try to wash it and tell us how it went. Let it air dry.

    It's awful the way the Apple case attracts dirt and grime. After cleaning I may spray on some Scotchguard fabric protecter.
