    Ok so I have recently noticed that my keyboard gets really really oily, and I want to know how you guys clean your keyboards? Do you guys iKlear or should I just keep using rubbing alcohol? I mean the main reason I don't like rubbing alcohol that much is that the oils return so quickly.

    Thanks,

    Why would iKlear make the oil return any slower?:confused: You can used watered down rubbing alcohol (I'm not so sure how strong alcohol does with aluminum). You could also use water :).

    The only reason I say that iKlear is because I have heard it many times and thought I read some where that it was "anti-oil" but there must be something out there that can clean the keyboard really well.

    Just water and cloth should be fine. I clean the body of my Book with iKlear so I also use it for the keyboard.

    iKlear is really the way to go on this solution. I've used their products to clean my iphone, macbook pro, and hdtv. I wouldn't trust anything else beside iKlear. It is used and recommended by apple, apple store, and it's associates.

    Sounds like I will be making a trip to the Apple Store this weekend to pick up some iKlear.
