    What would be a good analagous household alternative to iKlear or all those other BS "cleaning" products. What does everyone else use? I am not about to pay $15+ for a bottle of that stuff when I can probably use something like rubbing alcohol or whatever.

    Mainly I have trouble getting the grease of my fingers off the keyboard, trackpad and palmrest etc.

    Any ideas?

    I use iClean but I've had success cleaning my black MacBook with a damp (water) microfiber cloth and then using a second cloth to dry it.

    I was wondering this as well. I purchased an iklear set but now the spray is running out. I still have the cloths so it doesn't make sense to buy a whole new set, and the individual 8oz bottles I can only find online and for around $15 after shipping. I was thinking maybe a bit of windex or something plus water?
