I suppose you're not just asking for a link to iKlear (http://store.klearscreen.com/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=30).

I use it for my powerbook to clean the screen, case, and keyboard, and it keeps all of it looking great. As for cleaning underneath the keys, that's a bit beyond my ability. I don't look under there, though :D

I always just use a damp cloth to clean my iBook. Just be careful with the keyboard though, you dont want to go rubbing off the letters. Just take your time :). I need to clean my iBook now.....i was doing homework, and some ink got on my finger, and now one the case :o . Dont you just hate how ink sorta 'sticks' to it?

I use a microfiber cloth that I bought at Staples.

It's $6 US and some change for two cloths.

They work amazingly, and you can just wet it a bit with some water.

Just remember to clean the screen first, then other parts, dry it and do the bottom. (This is because the cloth CAN pick up dust that scratches your screen, but I haven't seen anything like that. Better safe than sorry though, right?)
