Moshi Keygard...Cleaning Tips Needed...

I have been using a Moshi keygard with my MBA for the past 2+ months and really like it as it does protect the keys in many ways...

The one problem that I have is that it is starting to look cloudy / murky from the oil in my fingers...I have tried cleaning it with water but that does not work...would appreciate cleaning tips from those that have successfully cleaned one...

With much thanks in advance,


Joel

I've tried lots of things including dish soap but what I found works best are pre-moistened alcohol wipes like the kind you buy for glasses. The alcohol is the only thing that seems to get rid of the cloudiness.

From Moshi's online store page:

Cleaning Instructions:
1. Apply some mild detergent (i.e. dish washing detergent) on a damp cloth
2. Gently scrub ClearGuard back and forth with the cloth
3. Rinse ClearGuard thoroughly with water
4. Place ClearGuard on tissue paper and air dry naturally


*Note:
- Excessive force during cleaning may induce wrinkles/creases
- Do not use soap to clean ClearGuard

going off Moshi for a cheaper grey coloured one

I was given a cheap quality one when i brought my Mac Air and i thought to get a Moshi as ?? any way after a little while i noticed it went cloudy like.
I tryed good quality glasses cleaner (helped a little) then soaked in dishwashing liquid before washing as i thought the cloudiness was due to dryness. Any way its still the same or little improvement.
So now iv ordered a Grey coloured one on ebay in hope the coloured one will disguise the cloudy look.
