    Curious as to what some of you are using to clean (screen/body) your MBPs.

    Will plain 'ol water and paper towel do the trick?
    I'm a little hesitant with paper towel as it might be to rough and scratch the screen.

    Is there a special solution/fiber someone can recommend?

    thanks

    Do NOT use paper towel on the screen. Get a photo wipe and use that instead.

    Usually they're referred to as microfiber cloths. No sense buying something like iKlear when water works just fine.

    Of course real cleaners like iKlear would probably work better, but I've used just water and a cotton T-shirt to wipe down my MBP. Mind you, it has to be damp and not wet. I also only let it sit for maybe a minute before wiping it down with another dry cotton T-shirt.
