Asus G74SX-A2 -Palm/Wrist Rest Cleaning

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I bought the laptop about three months ago and the things a beautiful machine (Battery Life could be better). The only problem I have is with the damn rubberized palm rest. I hate getting oil, dirt or anything else on the laptop so the method of cleaning that I tried is using Wet Napkins which contain alcohol so I thought it would work. To my surprise it did but this past month it's just been gathering crap on it because I haven't had time to clean it and it doesn't come off too easily and it smudges.

What are some suggestions or methods of cleaning this type of palm rest?

i own the G60VX (im pretty sure it has the same exact palm rests) i use rubbing alcohol on a coth followed by water on a colth to get as much off as i can (cause i dont like the smell of the rubbing alcohol) seems to always do the trick

also dont scrub it to hard ive seen people with spots on these type of palm rests that look like an over used touchpad (if you care about that anyways)

Thanks I'm going to try (Once I get my hands on some rubbing alcohol first)
