    Does anyone know how to clean ink off the smart cover? I written on my hand and now the cover has smudged ink spots all over it. I have tried foam and soap but none of them work. Any ideas?

    Which Smart Cover do you have? If it's leather, then the marks may not be possible to remove without damaging the finish of the leather. I'm not sure about the polyurethane Smart Cover.

    I saw a hint here one time, and it suggested Magic Eraser. I tried it and it worked fine.

    I've used magic eraser to clean up some wear dirt. Ink might be tough to remove though. That's pretty permanent. Good luck.

    It's unfortunately beginning to look like you may have to buy a new Smart Cover if you want one without ink stains.

    I've had good luck with using dish soap since it is geared towards loosening up oily and baked-on stuff. About once a month I wash my light blue polyurethane cover in the sink like dishes. I put about an inch of water with enough soap to get alot of suds. Then I scrub the front and back with a microfiber cloth.

    I like this method because it removes ALL the built up oils on the soft side and removes any stains on the cover. I let it sit overnight and it looks completely brand new the next morning.

    I started doing this because the soft part would get so grimy from my wife using it as a stand on kitchen counters when cooking that the cover itself was getting the screen smeared.

    I've since bought her the Belkin Cooking Stand/Kit and we're both happier.
