    I just bought a brand new 15" Neoprene Sleeve for the MacBook Pro in "muted cyan" or blue as i like to call it. On the first day i brought it home, something got on it, so i (stupidly) licked my finger and tried to clean what it was off. well that didn't work and now i have like... wet spots on the case. Has this happened to anyone else? And does anyone know how to fix it? Also, i'd like to point out that the inside of the case is like... a fur kind of thing, and i don't know if i should put it in the wash because of that.
    Thank you very much for taking the time to read this.

    It's a sleeve. It's meant to get dirty instead of your computer. Why worry?

    Use warm water and a mild dish soap. Soak for 30 minutes or so. Use a softish brush for stubborn spots. Air dry... Hope this helps.

    Use an Oxiclean travel size spot remover. Works for me.

    I just throw it in the washer with my towels and air dry it.

    Bless his soul. Original poster-- the Tide thing would probably also work.
