    you can use a microfiber towel damped with warm water. that is what i have done. though i have not cleaned my aluminum keyboard yet, just on my macbook keyboard. you can also get a magic eraser from the grocery store and use that. i did that on my macbook and it works well. i recommend cutting a small piece off of the sponge and using that, i think it can last years that way. goodluck.

    Damp paper towel always worked for me, even on a laptop. Just make sure it doesn't drip :p

    I just use a slightly damp paper towel and wipe the surface then dry it off.
