    Has anybody else noticed that the joy stick on the nunchuck is turning yellow from the oil of your skin? After about 50+ hours of play mine has a light tint to it.

    I went to my friends house, and his is very much yellow now. Anybody have any luck cleaning it?

    Rubber tends to yellow, I guess you could use a trick that people use to clean their Air Jordans. Seaglow or something.

    It was bound to happen. The bottom half of the nunchuck and wiimote have a different coating and the same thing is happening. It's like trying to keep a white car white...IMPOSSIBLE :idea:

    Yes, best post ever if your 13 and immature. At any rate. It has nothing to do with how clean your hands are or how much you shower. Thank you for useless input into my thread with shower jokes.

    Maybe you could try white wall tire cleaner, something like this. Not sure but could be worth a shot. Let us know what works for you.
