=T

Anyway, like others, I use a micro fiber cloth with a tab of water.
Why not consider a case for the palm rest (like this one: http://twelvesouth.com/products/surfacepad_air/ )?

for the screen I use Autoglym Glass Cleaner, then RainX to make it sparkle

Amen to that! That's what I do and it makes the Mac look brand new!

Keyboard - never have cleaned it - use a keyboard cover. Screen, Griot's glass cleaner sparingly with microfiber. Once a year or so. Cover/case, same as Screen. Keep my MacBooks in BookBooks so they almost never need any sort of cleaning.

I just use a soft damp clean cloth. I clean the screen first, then the case. No need for anything fancy.

Damp microfiber cloth, plus some special spray for the screen from a tech shop.

You forgot the part where you pressure wash it first.
