    Hey,

    So recently, my sister has been using my computer, and when she went to use it, she used it for like 3 days and she was wearing a sweater that she had been outside it, somehow the color leaked onto the palm rest and now it is blue, I have tried a damp cloth and then wiping with a dry one, but it didn't work, it isn't dark blue, but it is noticeable. Is there a way I could clean this?

    sorry, you're right. it is Mr. Clean's magic eraser, not 3M.

    I have not used it, but it was used by a lot of people when there was discoloring with the very first white macbooks.

    The magic eraser works great on the palm rest and the keys, but use it cautiously on the outer case. It is slightly abrasive and will scuff and leave dull spots on the shiny surfaces.

    iKlear is also a good alternative - you can get it at your local Apple store.

    Try pure lemon juice. Careful with those chemicals!

    Pure lemon juice is a chemical.

    Citric Acid

    One of the strongest acids known to man.
