    Well apparently Invisible Shields do not like Isopropyl Alcohol and I now giant white streak thingy on my Invisible Shield that refuses to come off.

    What do I do to get rid of it?

    Why did you do this? Use the spray installed. If the streak doesn't come off, it might have chemically bonded... Chemical bond = no way to get it off.

    Acids don't melt things... They react with things... That can cause melting, but may not. Bases can melt things too. Actually, natural water is a little acidic. It hasn't melted me.

    I still say chemical reaction caused the color change. That is irreversible. Wash it out with water. If it doesn't wash out, it's chemically dyed.

    Well people online said they used it fine on their Invisible Shields so I tried it out and about sh*t my pants when the streak was there.

    I've been using Isopropyl Alcohol on mine, and it works great. No streaks or anything?

    If people online said it's OK to jump off a bridge, would you do it? LOL... Just giving you a hard time.

    Zagg gives you a spray bottle with a nice solution. You should've used that.

    I was using the alcohol to get rid of the gunk in the corners and such, the solution wasn't doing so well. The streak seems to be slowly diminishing thankfully.

    Still, next time, just use the solution... If that doesn't work, email Zagg, it has a lifetime warranty.
