Flip case gets dirty

    Hello everybody,

    so, I've been using my One for about a week. So far it is a wonderful device.

    Together with the One, I've ordered orange flip case. And after a week of using it, I noticed that flip cover, which is quite light/bright, also gets a little dirty. I don't know, maybe from my blue jeans (I always put the One in my pocket), or from dirty tables at the pubs/bars.

    At the moment it is hardly visible, but I'm using it only for about a week. I am afraid what it will look like after a month or two. Or a year.

    I have tried to wash it with a little bit of water and a cotton, but it didn't help a bit. Maybe i should try some alcohol or hydrogen peroxide? But I am afraid of ruining my flip cover.

    Now as I think of it, I should have ordered a black one :) Unfortunately, it was out of stock when I bought my One. And because I live outsite launch 16 countries, I need to use mail forwarding service to get anything from OnePlusOne. Which takes time and and money. So I don't want to waste money on new flip cover.

    They flash from ColorOS to Cyanogenmod 11S and the One there isn't with a Cyanogenmod Logo.

    Anything light will get dirty over time... Black would be the way to go then.
    I have the orange too and the black

    Flip cases are not the best protection for your phone but if you are into that kind of cases .. get a darker color next time.

    I purchased an OPO flip case from Ali and it came in the official OPO package with the case and the OPO logo on the front
    Sounds like you are talking about the Chinese version OPO phone not the flip cases

    I know that :) Black was out of stock at the moment, so I didn't had a choice. And black is a little bit boring, while orange seemed to be much more attractive. Yet it is quite unpractical color.

    but the question is - how may I wash it away? What materials should I use, without ruining my flip cover? Soap and water? Alcohol? Hydrogen peroxide? It is a leather case, but I am afraid of using some strong chemistry on it, because together with the dirt, it may as well wash away orange color from my case :D

    To be clear the flip case is not genuine leather so rubbing alcohol will work just fine. But be careful not to use anything abrasive to clean it with.

    I thought this was wide known, I also had the flip cover in two weeks, it was ugly and the corners were broken.
