    So I have 2 silicon cases that I got from ebay like ipodtouchmaster has. Love them, but MAN do they ever get dirty and dust and crap sure sticks to them.

    Anyone else having the same issue?

    As well, they are a pain to clean. I should be able to soak them in some hot water to get the crap off of them right?

    Hate to break it to you, but that's just the nature of the beast. Every silicon case that I've ever owned has attracted dust like crazy, and eventually I've just stopped caring (and buying silicon cases

    I have both the white and black ones, but the black looks better but looks dirtier LOL.

    I was going to soak it in water, but thought about how it will just get dirty again once its in my pocket.

    Oh well

    I am currently awaiting the arrival of an Xtreme Tuffwrap case for my iPod Touch. I have read various reviews mentioning silicon cases acting as a dust magnet. I was wondering if periodically rubbing the case with a dryer sheet would help slow/prevent the collection of dust. Has anyone tried it?
