It's inevitable that your iPod will collect a few scrapes and scratches during its lifetime. My black nano is quickly collecting its fair share, and when I retired my first generation iPod it looked like a child had taken a lead pencil to it. The DLO Care Kit, $27.76, brings back that like-new look to your iPod with a 3-step Scratch and Cleaning solution program.




Package includes: No. 1 Daily Cleaner (for frequent application for gentle cleaning and shine on your iPod's screen and front surface), No. 2 Fine Scratch Remover (for the removal of blemishes and fine scratches from the screen and front), No. 3 Heavy Scratch Remover (for removal of heavy scratches and abrasions).

Brillo or ApplePolish Sauce ($5-20) are both great for combating scratches. Once you’ve selected your cleaner, grab a clean, cotton cloth (never use paper, as it shreds), fold it in half and apply a small dime-sized drop of the cleaner to the cloth. Use light, even pressure as you rub the cleaner on your gadget and avoid getting extra polish on the click wheel. It will likely take about four one-minute applications before noticing any difference on the surface.
