    Hey,
    I just removed the back of my BodyGuardz shield from my iPod touch to replace it, and there is a sticky glue like residue all over the back!!! I need to reapply the 2nd shield, and I don't want this on it.... can anyone tell me how to remove this?! The back is completely scratch free and I think that using any sort of scrubbing motion on it will scratch the steel... please help!!

    the steel will eventually get scratched
    it's almost garanteed
    but, just use water, and the cloth that came with your ipod touch, and wipe it off
    i use that a lot

    Damn that sucks.

    I'm about to remove my InvisibleShield for a replacement in a few days. I hope it doesn't leave anything like that behind.

    InvisibleShields don't - they literally cling to the surface like a film that shrinks onto it. I'm wondering if this was a REAL BSE, given that the only 'residue' that might be left should be whatever dust and crap got trapped behind the shield.

    Use a soft eraser to rub off the residue, it'll work.

    Whatever you're gonna do, it's going to scratch.

    Rubbing alcohol's another solution, depending on what sort of crap's on the back of the iPod.

    BodyGuardz and BSE use the same material that InvisibleShields use - and those stick to a smooth surface by clinging to them, not by using any sort of adhesive. There's definitely something wrong there.
