    So I doubt I'm the only person who is anal about how clean his/her DS Lite is. I clean and even disinfect it once every 2 weeks on average. In any case, I have no idea how to clean the 2 white rubber feet on the bottom of the system, and they've managed to turn a goofy tinge of brownish-red. Any ideas?

    I don't really know. But I'm crazy with keeping it clean too and scartch free. The biggest thing I hate about the White Lite is the rubber feet, any surface you play on will most likely color that its color.

    Try rubbing the triggers with a dry finger or microfibre cloth.

    Mine turned a little red because of the inside of my jacket. Why aren't there any DS socks?[​IMG]

    I dunno what to clean them with but I know what NOT to clean them with: do not use anything with alcohol in it. This is because the feet are made of rubber & when enough alcohol comes in contact with rubber it dries it out & then it cracks.

    Maybe use a little "Simple Green" cleaning product? Here in the US, that is a pretty good cleaner & environmentally safe product. The only reason I say that is because if it's environmentally safe, it will probably not damage the rubber feet.

    Game sell Mittens. There's no pic on the link but if they are the same as what I saw in store then they are the DSL equivalent of the (very expensive) iPod socks
