    Just got me new 42mm SS Watch directly from Apple and noticed today that the white band has some minor irregular staining of some kind in a few areas. It's extremely faint but definitely there. Like a bluish color. But I've only had the watch for one day and it never came in contact with jeans...or really anything besides my hands and the clear spray that Armorsuit sent with their skins. Anyone else come across this? Didn't want white to begin with but didn't really have a choice unless I wanted to shell out another $100.

    Clean with a little bit a dish soap, my wife's was dingy looking, came right out.

    Thanks. I've tried that and I'm still seeing the spots. Will give it another shot. Strange.

    Apple will also send you a new sports band at no cost and likely let you keep the existing band. (Being it's cheaper). But they may want or require pictures of the issue sent to them.

    Use a Magic Eraser pad. I had paint stain (I think) on my white band and it removed them.

    Thanks. My concern with this is that the magic eraser works because it's like a super, super fine sandpaper. I don't want to do any damage to the brand new band. If I'd had it for a while and gotten a stain I'd likely consider this. But being brand new it doesn't seem like it should have any perfections. Then again, they're very faint. Maybe it's within a certain tolerance. I should probably run up to the Apple Store and get their opinion.

    They will likely just replace it without question.
