    I was wondering what do you guys used to keep your laptop clean? I know this kinda sounds like a stupid question but the keyboard needs to be clean and in between the keys and was looking for advice what is best/safest way to clean it. Wipes?

    As far as the screen I'm using a Staples brand "Screen Cleaning Spray" for the display with Apple micro cloth that is given with my MBP.

    Let me know what you guys think...

    For the keyboard I use rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip. It picks up the dust and grime pretty well and won't ruin anything. Just don't have it dripping.

    I use a dry microfiber cloth for the screen and alcohol wipes for everything else.

    A DAMP microfibre cloth is all you need...I never use any form of chemicals on the screen, body or KB of any Macs I have ever owned.

    I remove the case from my rMBP once a month, and just wipe it clear of dust etc. with the same method.

    This method works well for me too. Just avoid the dishwasher ;)

    Sorry, couldn't help myself...

    Your laptops must be gross. Even with regular hand cleaning, it would be impossible for a machine in daily use to stay pristine.

    I use Windex-damped microfiber cloth fpr both the screen and keyboard.

    Windex contains ammonia.

    Been using this for years. Ammonia-free:

    I bought Brasso Gadget Care off of eBay and it's an amazing product. 3 to 4 drops directly into the screen (not liquid.. more gel-ish) and wipe it with a micro fiber cloth. Perfect. And it's anti static.
