    So i've read that many of the other products used to clean mac screen's and such can actually harm the screen. I see that apple obviously sells a product called Iklear, however, $25 seems kind of expensive for simply a "wash"....does any one have any suggestions of alternative products...or if Iklear is so "perfect" where to maybe get my hands on it at a little more reasonable price?

    thanks!!!

    I think several members use a dampened lint-free very very soft cloth to wipe their screens.

    I do use iKlear and I got it from a brick & mortar Fry's (if you want to find it online, see outpost.com). It was slightly discounted compared to the MSRP of $24.95, I paid about $20. But the 5 oz bottle seems huge-- think it'll last me for quite a few years. :eek:

    really? thanks! i guess $20 isn't a terrible price - espically if it lasts that long.


    anyone else have any suggestions too? :p

    I've been using OmniCleanz from Radtech for 2 years with no cpmplaints.
    It came with a cleaning cloth as well.

    Can't remember how much it cost, but it was only an 118ml bottle and it's still going strong.

    Another vote for OmniCleanz. I couldn't believe how well it cleaned all the surfaces of my older powerbook. My screen was in pretty bad shape. I thought the oily keyboard marks would never come off, but the screen looks perfect now.

    I think I got the $10 bottle -

    Hi, I use iClean but iKlear is what some of the AppleStores use so it's whatever you want to get. Mine is a 45ml bottle (spray) that came with a soft cloth and even though I use it two or three times a week it has lasted me almost a year. You really don't need to use much and the cloth can be hand washed using some of the spray and warm water :)
