You will need just one simple tool, an eraser. Using a regular eraser, I have cleaned blue stains from the AirPods case that were caused by a blue sports backpack. By using the eraser, the marks come right off.

AirPods cases are prone to scratches because the case material is soft plastic, and it has a very smooth surface.
It can be determined that minor scratches are within the clear coat (protection/final coat) that just about reaches the paint layer. The scratch gets through the clear layer and annoyingly reaches the tip of the paint layer of your AirPods case. Toothpaste works best for this type of scratch.

Fun-Tak and a wooden toothpick To remove the wax and dirt that's stuck inside the hollow of your AirPod speakers, just grab a small piece of Fun-Tak and stretch and knead it a bit to warm it up. Then press it against the speaker a few times and it'll pick up the wax and dirt.
To remove your AirPods Case, you need to press the bottom of the case, where you insert your charger. To remove a case that is stuck, we recommend using a small object to push your AirPods out of the case (though not a too small object, we do not want it to cause any damage to the charging input).
