    I use 91% isopropyl alcohol on a soft paper towel for the entire Mac.

    One exception being screens that are anti-glare, on those I use just water and if necessary 50/50 isopropyl alcohol/water.


    Tip: If you have a Mac with a sheet of glass over the screen, use windex as it makes it sooo much easier to get the screen streak free.

    Don't use Windex on the screen!

    I use Radtech's OmniCleanz and it works really well with no streaks.

    With the keyboard simple Q-Tips and a damp (not wet) cloth. Wipe down the keys with the damp cloth and get a small cup of water and some Q-tips. Did the Q-Tip in water and use that to clean between the keys.

    I agree but if you have a iMac or (non-matte screen) MacBook Pro it's not the actual screen your cleaning, it's just a protective piece of glass.

    Never use Windex or household glass cleaners.

    There are a lot of products out there that are hype, only worth using it over something else because they want to make a profit. That is not the case with specific products for cleaning computers and their monitors.

    Never use Windex or household glass cleaners.
