    Removing tough stains from laptop 13th Feb 18 at 11:49 AM
    Hi,

    What is the best way to remove tough stains from a laptop cover? I have already tried undiluted fairy liquid and dettol advance multipurpose spray without success.

    Thanks

    I use IPA - works quite well and evaporates quickly


    What kind of stain are we talking about ? And on what part of the machine ?

    If that is a brushed aluminium cover then those are not stains per se, but corrosion.

    Not sure if they will come out completely, but there are a couple of options on Wikihow other than those you have already tried.
