    Hi,

    I just got my first unibody MBP this summer and I love it! But the black _really_ shows the oil from my fingers. I was curious of what is the safest way to go about cleaning all this off.

    Thanks!

    Here is a nice thread I found for you. It appears to be the finish wearing off on the keys, not actual oil. Makes sense.

    It seems as though you need to wash your hands. But seriously I'm sure you could just find some sort of cleaning pad and make sure that's it's not to wet when you wipe the keyboard down.

    Yeah get used to the shininess of the keys since this is normal wear and tear on them. Of course black is the best color to make them out stand a lot.

    You can only see it if you look at it at an angle, which is the good part.

    Interesting. I think I'll just try iKlear since I have that for my screen and if that doesn't work then I'll just have to live with it.

    U can use iklear to clean up your keys but that shininess aint going nowhere, it is there to stay unfortunately.
