    After picking up my Polar White DS Lite today, I noticed that the two rubber squares on the back of the DS (top area) is noticeably stained (brown-ish) after years of sitting on different desktops and whatnot. Does anyone know of a good way to clean it up to make it all white and shiney again? [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Edit: oops, just realized I posted this in the Wii section, my bad. Can someone move it to the DS hardware area?

    You can get a new case for it, but that won't fix those rubber grips. You can always gouge them out, but that would reveal the screws underneath.

    Rub them raw or gouge them out.

    You could try WD40 - worked great for me getting rid of adhesive from a top screen (replacement)! Sounds dangerous but it worked for me - no problems at all!

    100% rubbing alcohol is safe to use just use sparingly

    Do you mean the 2 small rubber pieces that cover the screws on the bottom, near the hinge side? Erm... the rubber feet with shell kits aren't OEM type. The kits come with rubber "caps" that plug into the screw slots, not rubber adhesive pieces.
