    does anyone know any good ways to clean off dirt that has been left on the surface of a light colored ds lite? like the stains left on the surface by the ball of the palm always being in the same area when playing the ds, etc.

    and yeah, i can disassemble the entire ds to clean out the shell if needed, it's not a problem. anyone?

    Use a slightly damp cloth and clean it.

    already tried it, doesn't come off. i'm tryingto get rid of the stain completely, any ideas?

    I've tried using dishwashing liquid since i've already dismantled it, and soaking overnight with normal hand soap too, nothnig works...

    Well, what kind of stains do you have actually? Hard water stains or fingerprints?

    Put it in the washing machine [​IMG]
    I don't think Nintendo have said you can't put it in the washing machine, so you could sew them if it comes out wrong [​IMG]

    I second alcohol on something like a cotton bud (q-tip, whatever they call them in your part of the world.)

    If you don't have plain rubbing alcohol, try a bit of aftershave or deodorant (if you don't mind your DS smelling nice for a bit).
