To echo again (lol)

Do either of these products work for iPod Mini's aluminium case? Has anyone tried it? If so, which would you recommend for a mini?

Thanks

When you guys say that icleaner scratch remover made the front look "as good as new" do you mean there were just no scratches or there were no scratches or swirl marks, I have very light scratches and dont want to add swirl marks.......????

My main concern is getting the front plastic cover as smooth and silky as I can. But as for the back, how about going in the opposite direction? Anyone have any suggestions for how to provide a smooth, consistent frost or brushed look to the back? I think a brushed metal back would be hot, and look spiffy with my Powerbook. Anyone care to suggest sand paper grades, brushes, etc?

Also, the gray click wheel of my 40GB iPod is looking kind of dingy and yellowed with grime. Any suggestions from anyone on how to clean it? Would rubbing alcohol on a Qtip work?

I used Crest Fresh Mint Gel Toothpaste and it yielded decent results. after repeatedly applying a tiny amount, rubbing for a minute with my thumbs and then wiping it off with a damp paper towel, then drying, it made a significant improvemant to the plastic. However, I wouldn't really reccomend it because it only got rid of extremely light scratches and made some of its own. (only detectable under bright light though) I would only reccomend it if you're really cheap like me.

I had some PDA Screen Protectors (the clear plastic the somehow sticks to screens without gummy or noticible adhesive. I took several screen protectors and covered the entire ipod with them.

It's doesn't detract from the look of the ipod much. And that Ipod will NEVER get scratched. It is completely covered. Never have to worry about it.

oh by the way I covered the ipod with screen protectors as soon as I took the new ipod out of the box.

I first used brasso with a terry cloth and the screen became VERY VERY scratched. Then I tried with toothpaste with a kleenex and it became worse. Then I used brasso with a kleenex and was still scratched. What am I doing wrong? Please advise me.

I tried to be careful with my new ipod and it didn't come with a case so I stuck it in an old sock... big mistake.. the inside was rought and scratched up my screen. Solution -- I took the edge of a high thread count pillow ( thread count of 360 is what I used) and gently rubbed. The soft fabric managed to buff out 90% of the scratches. And it didn't cost me a thing

hi what kind of cloth would u use with brasso or the meguiars polish without damaging the ipod?

Posted by zoster on January 7, 2005 at 2:51 PM (PDT) Comment 73

i tried toothpaste. colgate with a kleenex.

well, from what i saw it will clean the ipod on both surfaces and only remove VERY minor scratches. it doesnt polish it...

Posted by SoxFan88 on January 8, 2005 at 11:57 AM (PDT) Comment 74

i would go with a metal polish such as meguiar's or brasso.

I bought iCleaner and this review is spot on. The stuff works miracles on the front- it looks almost as good as it did when I got it. The deep-scratch remover and back polish is not as grand, however. It looks better than it did, but not like it did when I got it. I was reminded of how nice it looked when I bought the iPod remote... oh how I miss it's original gloss...

I thinkn ice creme is good in some ways....it removes the small scuff but doesnt really reduce the profile of the nasty ones. I would atleast expect it reduce the prominence of the bug scratches so it atleast dosent look so obvious. The polishing tool quite good. it really restores the initial shine that new ipods have.
