    Hey everyone,
    Long time reader, first post. Anyway, I have been thoroughly enjoying my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I started off with the standard Verizon Silicone case, upgraded to the extended battery, and then realized I need more protection for this beautiful piece of machinery :hail:. I did a lot of research on here and other sites...and wound up with the Otter Box Commuter series. It is is a GREAT case, fits snug with the extended battery- just what I was looking for. Not massive like the Defender. Of course I wasn't having the screen protector that came with the O.B. Commuter, so I ordered a Zagg Invisishield. The combination of the Zagg and O.B. create (I.M.O.) the perfect protection setup. I had the people at Best Buy (for $7) install my Zagg perfectly. They have a few extra tools...and let's just say I am one to butcher putting the standard Verizon screen protectors on, so I wanted it done perfectly. Well, today I got a very small dab of green Sharpie (permanent marker) on the Zagg shield. I have been debating if and how to remove it. It is not that big or noticeable, but of course it is the first thing my eye is drawn to. So it MUST go!!! :icon_ nono:. I do not think I should use an alcohol swab..I read some CRAZY suggestions on the internet which aren't even worth my keystrokes. Does anyone have an idea of what to do? Is it possible to get rid of? Will I have to get a whole new Zagg if I want it off? Thanks for the help....hopefully :icon_eek:.

    Can't say I have ever had this happen or read where it happened to someone else. And look at it this way whatever you try (whether it be one of those not worth your keystrokes or something else) is worth a shot since either way you are replacing it. But maybe something like nail polish remover or something to that effect. Just please don't get any on the phone!

    True...well I do not plan on replacing it. I already have the Zagg shield installed and I got a blotch of permanent marker on it. Wanted to remove without damaging the Zagg. Maybe I should contact them directly...

    Sorry from your description it sounded like if all else fails you were going to replace it. You could always contact them although I don't know if their warranty covers stains. It may only be for rips or tears.

    Never had it happen to my screen cover. But what works with ID cards is going over the Sharpie with a dry erase marker. Then it wipes right off.

    I would just take a cotton ball lightly dipped in alcohol or nail polish remover. It really shouldn't hurt the screen protector or the phone

    STG. I wish I could take a picture. There is a small smudge mark...and I thought the green was gone. But I turned all of my background white and there is a little bit of green!! :mad: Gah this phone looks flawless especially with the Best Buy Zagg setup. If it keeps driving me insane, I may have to take Zagg up on their warranty..

    Edit: What if I try a slight dab of my Tide Pen?? Or is that a bad idea.

    I hate to say it but a small smudge would drive me nuts too. Sorry it didn't work out as well as hoped.

    Could try WD-40, rubbing alcohol, or nail polish remover.

    I use hand sanitizer on my device every week with a cotton ball. Cleans it up real nice and I haven't had any issues with it ruining my screen protector (SGP Ultra Olephobic)

    Goo Gone is harsh but maybe if you put a small amount on a cloth and just lightly wipe it. I know it takes anything off lots of different surfaces.

    + 1 for the go gone. I have i've used it to clean all my phones of unremoveable scuffs, marks and gunk. Never had it cause any damage personally. Just keep it away from screen protectors as it will lift the edges if too much is applied, so you only need a dab!

    Really? Are you nuts, Isopropyl alcohol sure but nail polish remover is acetone and is very agressive to many plastics! Use with care, plus don't get any on your skin, it will store in your liver.
