    There are some unremovable staind on my macbook`s surface, near the trackpad. I`ve followed all the apple`s website recomendation (such a clean and dry cloth, non abrasive cleaning fluids, but none of these tricks were usefull and the stains still there. I don`t know what I should do to finish it out. Can some one help me?
    Here are photos of these referred "bloody" stains.

    Just one thing: I live abroad, in South America, so I can't order liquid or fluid products from USA. Also it is hard to order something else from there.

    Thanks and cheers,
    Gus

    Usually i would say this is down to use, and reccomend a cleaning product. But that stain on the trackpad is in a really unusual place, and is roughly where the middle of the battery is. I would take it to apple and see what they have to say. have you removed the battery to check for any marks or burns?

    Are you a smoker? Do you eat a lot of Cheetos?

    Can you get a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser down there?

    Perfect Solution!

    I had the exact same problem in several areas on the palm rests of my white macbook as a result of using yellow chalk in the classroom. After trying countless cleaning products the only thing that worked was Arm & Hammer Whitening Toothpaste (Peroxide & Baking Soda). I just rubbed a decent size amount on the area with my finger and cleaned off the dry toothpaste with a slightly damp cloth. I even tried it on an area that had a small ink stain and got the same result. It worked perfectly and it looks brand new! :)

    Please, do NOT do this.

    If it is indeed the battery, that could be a serious, and hazardous problem.
    Though, if you can get your hands on a Mr. Clean magic eraser, it should do, as its name suggests, "magic". :)

    Be careful not to have the sponge itself to wet when cleaning though.

    I've heard about to many careless mistakes made like that and the ending result usually has something to do with some of the keyboard and or trackpad not working.

    Good luck! :)
