    I just got a new Flexi-Skin case for my Treo 650 (blue - I just love it!) but the dadgum thing is a MAGNET for lint, hair, etc. Does anybody else use one and have you figured out an easy way to keep them clean? I carry it in my purse and it is all fuzzy after 2 days ... LOL.
    Thanks!!

    Hve you tried running it under a faucet? I suggest you remove the Treo first! Works for me...

    I coated my skin (though not a Boxwave, but silicone) with a thin coat of vaseline and wiped it clean with a piece of lint free fabric.

    Did the trick for me!

    I learned about this issue from being an ipod user. The latex skin market is huge in the ipod world.

    The clean the skin or "defuzz" there's a simple trick... powder.
    Use baby powder on the skin, and it will clean it easily.

    Just get a piece of scotch tape and stick it on surface of the skin, it will lift up the fuzz. You may need a few pieces to go over the whole surface but it works well.

    I wet a Towel (terry, not paper) and wipe off the surface. The other thing is the lint gets underneath it as well, so thats another thing..

    A good tip that I received from a user is to wash the FlexiSkin (remove it from the 650 first, please!) with handsoap and water a few times (3?) and air dry. This will reduce the amount of "stickiness" that the FlexiSkin may have.

    Cheers,

    This makes sense. I'll try it. I just LOVE my FlexiSkin and have gotten lots of compliments on it.

    Cho is dead on-target. Cleanliness is next to Godliness (or at least fuzzlesness) WRT silicone cases.
