    i've read about this before as well...

    i've got a black leather smart cover, which i love, but boy does it leave lined marks on the glass screen.

    it leaves marks on the screen where the 3 long grooves are, which ironically touch the screen the least. the main 4 leather panels dont leave any marks. and it's a quick thing - it doesnt take days to happen, it happens all the time.

    and i dont know what they are. these marks are easily removed by a cloth, and aren't black (so not the leather residue), and happen even when the cover is cleaned. its most strange. it isn't a problem, just a minor pain in the ass.

    I suspect it's just dust/grime getting in where it doesn't touch as well - it's got a groove there...

    If one where not to touch the screen with fingers, there would be much less stripes.

    Anyway, the cover has a micro-fiber inside, just slide it over the screen every once in a while, instead of lifting it up and the stripes disappear.

    What's a good way to wash the inside cover of the SmartCover? I have thought of scrubbing it in soapy water but suspect that could rust something or break something!
