    I looked at my white bumper today and it has a big blue jean mark on it. I've had these jeans for over a year and I've washed them alot so I just figure I'll have to clean the case back to white every week or so BUT... what is the best way to clean / scrub it back to white?

    Thanks for your help :)

    That's the way white works. It gets dirty. I replaced my bumper once it got too bad.

    You can try something like a baby wipe or magic eraser on it, that's what I use for jean transfer on purses.

    Just for the love of God make sure you take the case off your phone first. :rolleyes:

    Forget the Magic Eraser, unfortunately. It's a miracle on other things, but doesnt do a thing for the material they use for the bumper. I never found anything physical or chemical that actually cleaned dye stains off Apple's bumpers. And I destroyed two of them trying.

    Your choices are to keep a supply of them on hand & toss every few weeks when they get dirty (eBay has them cheap), switch to the black (nothing shows on that one), or switch to another case.
