    Hey Everybody!

    I have the Apple Folio and Keyboard Folio for my new iPad. I am annal and OCD and always use my iPad with clean hands and keep the cases away from other materials that could damage them. Both of the cases have smudge marks on them. Quite substantial smug marks - from what I cannot tell. Does anyone have cleaning solutions for them?

    Wash your hands all you want, but skin has natural oils that still comes out. I haven’t noticed any substantial marks on my launch day keyboard folio. However, in the past, when I wanted to clean my original ASK, I used a huggies all natural baby wipe or a simple damp towel/cloth.

    The baby wipe brand probably doesn't matter. That’s just what the wife was using on the kid.

    Yes, of course. Yours doesn’t have any smudges? If you hold it up in light and move it around you don’t see any smudges? Mine is full of them. I am surprised Apple didn’t put any coating on it. I used a clorox wipe and with some effort it seemed to do the trick. Thanks for the tip.

    My Smart Keyboard folio is also full of smudges even though I take care of it. It does seem like my previous Apple iPad case were getting smudges a lot less. Same issue with my smart folio.

    I wipe down my smart folio with a damp cloth and a bit if Windex. Removed the smudges and looks like new. It is plastic.

    Yes, I would agree. I’ve never had that issue with Apple’s covers before. I’d usually get the folio. The issue with those was chunks falling off. In general, I like the new ones a lot better. The Clorox whipe is working very well. Now I have something new to be OCD about :(
