    For the pedants,

    After:
    Been looking at my top case (touchpad etc) for a while and wasn't happy as it was darkened/aka discolored and water did (removed local word) nothing to it.

    Apple have confirmed that it's discoloration and that I would not be able to remove it via cleaning, so they are taking it in for a service.

    Though I shall be without it for 7-10 days; so windows it is *yuck*

    clog in my case ive been looking at the area for like 5 weeks, it hasn't got worse but i just want it perfect. (seems to have been sorted now)

    call the applecare helpline, they should offer to pickup the macbook, or for you to take it to a store (if you ring up then the store has to take it rather than messing you around - if that makes sense)

    did you try cleaning it with apple polish like iKlear?

    i work with charcoal almost too much and it really makes my touchpad dirty as time goes. i use the iklear on a non abrasive cloth and it cleans not only my screen, but my touchpad like magic. it looks brand new now.
