Sticker residue on exterior of clamshell iBook

Recommended Posts

I just bought an old clamshell iBook off eBay, and it arrived with some sticker residue on the exterior case. (The keyboard and screen are in remarkably good condition.) There are a few gray dirt streaks also.

 

Does anyone know how to get the sticker residue off of the exterior case of this model iBook? The plastic on the clamshell is so soft that I worry about using a typical off-the-shelf residue remover.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

I use light amounts of vegetable oil on a paper towel and lightly rub it away.

I have had success with a product called Goo Gone or something like that. They sell it in most cleaning aisles of stores. I would test it on a small portion first though (as with anything). I've never tried vegetable oil, might be cheaper than buying Goo Gone though.

Goo Gone works too, but I only resort to that if needed.
