Just picked up an 8-pack of those "Magic Eraser" sponges (they're by Chux here in Aus) and I am gobsmacked. Apart from keeping my screen clean my iBook hasn't had a proper clean since I bought it in late 2004 and the palmrests were turning a rotten shade of yellow after two years of heavy use by big Aussie hands sweating in the summer heat. One swipe of a Magic Eraser sponge and two years of grime is gone. Vanished. It even cleaned out some of the scratches on the base making them all but invisible. So, apart from a few minor scratches my iBook now looks just as it did when i took it out of the box on a rainy late-November day in Vancouver and took my first steps on a Mac that was all my own. It's good to have my baby back in top form. If anybody wants something to get their gear back to its best I highly recommend the Magic Eraser. Simply brilliant.
