Good day fellow M17x... owners. First post and new reader here. I have searched for the right spot to place this thread but I could not locate one so here goes... Over several months I have roamed the internet to find a good way to clean this rubberized coating off the case of my M17X r 3. I did not find a solid solution. I happened to have a few bottles of hand sanitizer around (thanks to covid) so, I thought I would give that a try. Much to my surprise, it worked!!! I am attaching some photos of the before and after, as well as the ingredients label on the hand sanitizer. I used a small plastic prying tool (for plastic parts like computer bezels) as a scraper, magic eraser, rags and ALOT of elbow grease. I would rub some hand sanitizer on small areas and let that sit for about 10 mins then start scrapping, sometimes I had to do that a couple of times. I used a rag to rub more off. After I had done this to each panel (palmrest and cover) I would then go back over everything with the magic eraser. I was even able to get around the Alienware Head of the front cover without removing it from the cover. This process took me all day to do. I did take several breaks My old hands cant take all that as I use too... Hopefully this will help someone else. I don't know why anyone would put that crap on a computer anyway... Not sure where Ill go from here, maybe paint the covers or have them wrapped. With that being said, share what you did to your laptops to clean and customized. I apologize, my cell phone does not take the best photos.
