    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...

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    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!

    Got an ink spot on grey side of smart cover. Cleaned perfectly with terrycloth, cold water and dab of non chlorine bleach. Orange front cover sparkling too with a wipe over using same cloth.

    I have a Zagg screen protector on since day 1 and there are black streaks on the screen from my black leather smart cover and cannot clean/get them off. I have tried the cover, soapy water, and a screen cleaner. Nothing works....any suggestions?
