    I was hurrying to fill out forms at a medical office and got ink on my red smart cover. Any tips on removal?

    It's the Apple official smart cover poly material.

    Great suggestion.

    Other possibilities:
    1. GooGone.
    2. Goof Off (more caustic than GooGone).
    3. Set the cover (not the iPad!) in direct sunlight for several hours.
    Just be warned that anything that removes the ink is likely to affect the color of the cover. Personally, I'd just embrace it as part of the "patina."

    Thanks for the suggestions. I haven't tried GooGone or Goof Off, but none of the others did the trick. I'm trying to just stop seeing it! :)
