    I bought an iPod Touch screen film, the kind that is clear and sticks because it is made of silicone. However, I let my friend use it and he has some really bad dandruff, the kind that makes it look as if you are covered with thick snow. Well, the stuff got all over the screen (he's not using it again) and for some weird reason, the danruff has somehow managed to glue itself to the screen protector film. I tried to rub it off, but it just sticks there. I mean, I can feel it and pick some of if off with a guitar pick, but the pressure needed to do so might damage the screen. I want to keep the screen film that I already have because it is rather expensive to replace and hard to stick on again. Any ideas?

    Not sure how to get rid of it besides regular usage. I used a lotion a little while ago that suprisingly had fine glitter in it, and when i handled my iphone with the invisible shield on it afterwards the glitter got almost embedded into the IS material. And I did everything I could think of to get rid of it, but after just ignoring it, and using it normally, it eventually went away.

    Did you try cleaning it with a light solvent, like an eyeglass cleaning solution. Use a soft cloth, like the one that Apple includes with the Touch or those that come with eyeglasses, wet it a bit with the cleaning solution, and wipe.
