    Default Gameboy Color - Clean or Repair Color?

    I recently got a GBC and have been cleaning it slowly to try and get it looking pristine. But so far, have been utterly unlucky with the tiny nooks and crannies. I'm less worried about it in the places you can't see.. But as you can see with the pictures below, there are some obvious points. I've been trying to scrub and using alcohol and q-tips and so forth, couldn't get it out. So I went to using some Xacto knives, and couldn't get it out. I'm not sure what to do at this point.

    "Firm" bristle toothbrush with a spritz of Windex. Works 100% of the time

    Those indentations are so small there is probably nothing you can do short of sanding down the casing and repainting it. I would't even waste time with it.

    I second a toothbrush or something with soft bristles. Also use soap and water or mild house hold cleaner. Just make sure it doesn't hurt the plastic.
