    i've lost my cleaning cloth that came with the macbook, and I recently had the screen replaced. I want to preserve its aesthetics so what should I buy for cleaning?

    I'm obsessed with cleaning, so what are a few items to buy for cleaning the machine, both the screen and the body?

    cheers

    Firstly stop being obsessed with cleaning the more you do the more chance you will damage the machine and ruin those aesthetics you are trying to preserve. Think of it as overpolishing the family silver and exposing the brass under the gilt.

    Secondly apple has clear advice for cleaning, don't use any products on it at all. For the screen a clean microfibre cloth very slightly dampened should be used and for the body a dry clean lint free cloth.

    As an example I wipe my screen maybe once a week and the body maybe once a month and after 18 months mine looks like new.

    cotton diaper or old cotton t shirt, maybe a good cotton towel. Just enough WATER (nothing else) to rub off grubbies. I treat my rMBP the same as I treat my eyeglasses.

    Why on earth would you touch the screen??

    Just put microfibre cloths into amazon there are about a million to choose from.

    I use the same cloth as the one for my reading glasses.

    Being OCD and having expensive technology is not a good combination.
