Which iCleaner bundle do you all reccomend the most? I planned on going with the iCleaner rather than the Ice Creme, but wasn't sure which bundle was most worth while. Please, give your input...

I just bought a mini and already have little scuffs on the screen and buttons. Looks like iCleaner's the way to go.

It hasn't come up yet, but would these same products work for the mini's aluminum case? It seems to have a different type of finish, which, actually, I think will do a much better job of hiding flaws.

I agree with the auto polish. I use Mothers polish for Chrome and Aluminum surfaces. You apply the polish, and buff it until you see black (oxidation) appear on the cloth, then you buff it off with another cloth. Works wonders for mine. Thank you all, I had never heard of any of this plastic polish.

For small scuffs on the front of the iPod, I've found that simply rubbing my finger with a light pressure over the affected areas works well. The display on my 3G iPod was gettting very scuffed but, after about 10-20minutes of rubbing with my finger, the screen is now cystal clear with no signs of any marks.

Risk free and worth a try before you spend money on creams etc.

I find this review a bit puzzling...

I purchased icleaner a few months ago and was pretty dissatisfied with the results. I searched the web for a better solution and came across this review here at ipodlounge:
http://www.ipodlounge.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=7334
This review was very pro-ice creme and indicated that it did a great job on the plastic, leaving no swirl marks. Now this review is saying just the opposite???
Whatever the case, I was able to return MY ipod to like new condition with ice creme, something I could not do with icleaner.
I notice icleaner advertises on ipodlounge and radtech doesn't... what's the deal here??

I find a combination of red wine, beetroot and diesil fuel reduces the appearence of scratches...

i tryed toothpaste on the screen and it worked pretty well....im doing the back right now

im thinking twice of buying the icleaner or the ice creme because i find it very expensive. i found a lot of other scratch remover brands on the internet. Can anyone please suggest what brand i should buy. thanks.

i think toothpaste can be a huge mistake....since some are more abbrasive..... and in combination with a bad cloth it can be a disaster

i just purchased the icleaner package with just the icleaner, it worked a bit, but i wouldnt say all 20$ for it was worthwhile...

The toothpaste works, my mom totally messed up my iPod 2nd day I had it, she made huge scuff marks... it make them look sooo much better... still visible but much smaller...

I wanted to try icleaner. I ordered it from the website and waited. After not recieving anything I contacted them. I was told that they had a "computer glitch" and I should recieve something "real soon". After another week I emailed them and now they say they have no record of my order. Needless to say I am VERY dissappointed with this company. Anyone else have problems like this??

I purchased all three Ice Cream products but I didn't get that cool looking tube. They sent mine in a plain white box! That sucks! I had good results removing scratches from my iPod screen however.

I bought Ice Cream and was able to remove the scratches from the back of my 3rd gen iPod. It took about 30 minutes, but I had exert quite a lot of force.

I had to put the creme on the pod, put the cloth on the creme, make my hand into a fist, and rub as hard as possible. It took so much pressure that I gave myself two blisters.

But, the metal has a nice finish again and I've put a Pod Shield from TrendyGeek.com on it, so hopefully it will stay that way.

ive used ice creme..... and it worked pretty good for the screen... didnt buy the metal one because i heard it doesnt do much.

Posted by matt on May 20, 2004 at 6:09 PM (PDT) Comment 39

toothpaste..... ya true what the guy said.... i actually tried it before i got ice creme and it made it worse...... people who got it to work must of had a good combination of toothpaste and cloth LOL.. so be careful

This is useful - though I just need to know what is the best cream for removing scratches from the display screen. I could not work out when people are referring to the plastic if they are referring to the white casing or the screen.

Please someone let me know the best cream (& ideally where I can get it) that removes scratches from the display screenof my IPOD _ CJ from Central London

Dont you people understand that the plastic front IS THE SCREEN, its not like theres a break in the plastic, and a new material is used to cover the screen, its the same thing as the rest of the plastic.

Posted by SiRius on May 24, 2004 at 12:28 PM (PDT) Comment 42

also, for those who used toothpaste, and got positive results, please say which brand and type of toothpaste you used, aswell as the type of cloth you used...and for those who got negative results, please state the same...

Posted by SiRius on May 24, 2004 at 12:31 PM (PDT) Comment 43

There should have been a picture of the front portion of the restored ipod. That way we could see the improvements made. As it sounds nothing will get it perfect.

Thanks for all the info, but where is the best or cheapest place or site to buy this stuff at?
