    Hey all, I was wondering what type of chemical and wipe you use to clean the wristpad area and the rest of the finish on your MacBook Pro. I want to keep mine real purdy but I don't want to take the finish off by using something I shouldn't.

    Ideas?

    Mr. Clean Magic Eraser does wonders. Perfectly safe for a MB or MBP.

    Cheers!

    I use iKlear for both the case and the screen, and it works a treat.

    I'm going to try iKlear.

    The little strip under the keyboard that is apparently the only painted section of the MacBok Pro on mine seems a bit sticky with a little line on the right hand side.

    I'm scared to wipe incase it peels off or something - i would die if it did!

    Alchol swipes, the ones the doctor uses before giving you a jab :)

    I use iKlear 8oz. bottle and included cloth. Bought it at the Apple Store near my house, or you can buy it from iKlear themselves. It works fantastically.

    Also, its the only cleaner Apple confirms that it won't harm the Macbooks.

    I just use the same cleanser/toner wipes which I use on my face (Guys, just ask your girlfriends to get some for you). They always clean the mbp up a treat.

    I thought the alcohol based cleaners such as wet wipes etc would over time strip away the protective layer on the aluminium, which is why Apple directs you towards non-alcohol based cleaners such as iKlear.

    I use the exact same thing purchased at the exact same place (Apple Store near my house) :) iKlear works great for me.

    I picked up some iKlear the other day and i was amazed. It gets the case and the screen no problems and the included cloths are great + its safe to use on other sensitive equipment as well.

    I simply use lint-free tissue (Kimwipes) and water - works great on the metal and on the screen.
