Good as New: Clean Your iPod

Clean up your dirty iPod using the tips and tricks in this hack.

Remember those first moments when you unwrapped your new iPod? So clean, so shiny…until you put it in your pocket. The iPod’s metal back loves to be scratched, and its plastic front is not much better. Don’t get out the bleach and silver polish, though. Your iPod needs the cleaning products and tools appropriate to its outstanding design.

Getting Clean

The best product for cleaning dirt, fingerprints, and small scratches off your iPod is a product called Plexus Plastic Cleaner. Originally designed to polish the windshields of F-16 fighter jets and other aircraft, Plexus does an amazing job of cleaning up any polymer surfaces, so you can use it on everything from CDs and DVDs to your car (which probably has a polymer-based clear coat on top of its paint). The company that makes Plexus sells it only by the case online (http://www.plexusplasticcleaner.com), but if you Google “Plexus Plastic Cleaner” you’ll find a number of outfits selling it online at a price of about $10 for a big can that will last you years.
