    For those who own the Apple iPad Case, how do you clean your case? We all know it's a dust and dirt magnet...

    I've washed mine twice in the sink with dish soap and let it dry overnight.

    I think it is interesting so many people complain about how dirty the Apple case gets. I've been using mine since 30 April 2010 and any markings I have got have come right off with my finger or shirt/napkin/towel with no trouble.

    Maybe I'm just lucky. :)

    Towel

    Mine just needs a quick wipe. Usually a damp towel does the trick.

    Mine gets dirty as hell...but I work in a school :eek:

    I'm still looking for a way to clean it safely. I'm also getting a lint/dust build up under the edges. Anyone else?

    I use some of Radtech's Omnicleanz and a microfiber towel and it cleans the Apple case just fine.

    Windex wipes. The key is to clean the case with something that doesn't contain detergent and doesn't leave residue. Windex wipes are perfect because the cleaning agent is ammonia so it doesn't leave any residue. They are quick, clean and don't leave any wetness.

    Fairy liquid, under the tap. Rub, rinse, shake, wipe with a cloth, let it dry. Back on the iPad in no time.

    As good as new in 5 minutes. I mean, this is just a rubbery plastic, isn't it? Why the kid gloves?

    Vileda microfiber cloth gets the case and screen clean in seconds.

    3goldens is spot on, (no pun), I used to be into car detailing some, and the apple case just needs a little protectant, IMO there are better ones than armor all, but if used very sparingly the material is actually improved, and doesn't mar as easily either.
    Just remember less is more.

    I haven't really had any problems with it, despite hiding my iPad on the floor of my car underneath my seat whenever I leave it in the car. (Sssh, nobody would possibly think to look under there!)

    Anytime there's a spot of dust, a wipe with a damp cloth seems to do the trick.

    Armor all makes my hands break out into a itchy rash.... Wouldn't that be fun?

    I can't imagine using it on an iPad case :confused:
