Macbook discoloring acetone nail polish remover

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I made a huge mistake of trying to remove some ink that got on the top of my Macbook with ACETONE nail polish remover. I know this works when you you use non-acetone remover but I forgot to read the lable beforehand. It seemed to make a couple large spots discolored, darker white color, and made the surface ruffer. My question is would applecare cover for a new casing or would I have to pay, and does anyone know any other fixes. Thanks a lot.

Pay. It's self-inflicted damage.
There's no there there. But, I'm working on it.

My daughter did the same. I successfully machine polished the cover with a clean lambs wool pad. The dull appearance dissapeared and the cover was shiny as before.
