    What do you use to keep the silver edges clean on your ip4? I can just wipe my screen with a micro fiber cloth and I'm good to go. But when I wipe the silver with the cloth it leaves "smear" marks. If you use a damp cloth, some of the smearing goes away but not all of it.

    I'm really not a clean freak at all and I know it's going to get prints on it all the time. But u figured somebody would know how to keep the silver trim nice at least for a while.

    I use a fresh plucked feather off a bald eagle and slightly dampen it with baby tears before gently brushing off the stainless steel.

    LOL.

    Honestly, I don't worry about the silver band around the phone since that's not the part of the phone I look at the most. Just gotta keep the screen nice and clean.

    Only if the baby's tears are from happiness and not sadness.

    +1. Non issue. Just don't hold it that way.

    try hydrochloric acid or gasoline and matches. that usually gets the smudges out.

    P.S. as a bonus this also fixes all "grip of death" and proximity sensor problems!

    Dip it in a cup of weak tepid chamomile tea. Dry with a lint free 100% organic cotton cloth.

    I didn't realize this was a forum for out of work stand-up comedians. ;)
