So how to solve this? Well I know liquid silicone will do the trick, but I don’t have any. I have used it on car parts before with good results. So I had the next best thing, a Headlight Restoration kit. I used the spray lubricant from the kit to bring back the plastic on the laptop. I wish I had a better before picture but I didn’t think about it till after I applied the first coat. But trust me it does work, and it does not leave an oily finish either. Lets see how long it will last.
So I have a laptop, it’s an older one. A Toshiba Tecra, decent machine Intel i5 2.somethingGhz, 3GB RAM and a laptop that was free. BOOM. Sad part is that the palm rests were a little worn. I had cleaned them with some rubbing alcohol but all that accomplished was making the pads turn white from no more oils in the plastic. They were already white which is why I was cleaning them, just cleaned too good I guess haha.
